PowerPoint 2010 presentation broadcasting fails
You try to start a presentation broadcast in PowerPoint 2010. You choose the free PowerPoint Broadcast Service, click Start Broadcast but after a few seconds, you get an error message and the broadcast doesn't start.
One user on the PowerPoint forum suggested this solution, which worked for us as well:
- Choose File | Save & Send | Broadcast Slide Show then click Broadcast Slide Show on the right side of the screen.
- In the Broadcast Slide Show dialog box that appears, click Change Broadcast Service.
- Click Add a new service.
- In the Add Broadcast Service dialog box that appears, enter http://test.com or the like then click Add.
- Click PowerPoint Broadacast Service (and NOT the new fake service you just added).
- Click Start Broadcast.
It works here. With luck, it'll work for you too. Happy Broadcasting!
