help deciding which programs for video purpose

by leeman1 / November 7, 2012 8:22 AM PST

I use a pc with windows 7. I am trying to find a product. I checked your video converting downloads and see 2 or 3 that may or may not work. I am not understanding the technical terms. so this is what I am trying to do. I have a digital photoframe for photos and stuff to play in sequence. I got my sister to create a powerpoint presentation (because I don't know how) for my husbands company. It's about a new product line. I thought it would be simpler to take the photoframe to play the slides on when I present the idea to purchasers, as a visual aid. However, the photoframe only recognizes certain file types. It does not recognize powerpoint. I converted each page to a jpeg but it doesn't like that either. The pictures load and just sit there. On the box it mentions this under format support: jpeg image files, MP3 audio files, plays MPEG-!, MPEG-@, (AVI, XviD) video files, phot slideshow mode with music and it has a remote controller. I tried making a movie of the slides in windows movie maker, but could only save it as a wmv file. So I read quite a few of your video converter program info. Some of them appear to convert the WMVV to AVI but actually I really don't know what any of those things mean. If I convert the presentation to a windows movie and then convert it again to this AVI thing, will this work to make it play? I am almost ready to go to Fiverr and see if someone can make it work. Help. Please?
