How can I embed a powerpoint presentation in the html and view it with Firefox?
I'm able to, modifying registry keys in windows, to see a powerpoint presentation embedded in a webpage using IE11 Opening the same page with firefox, it opens the file but not in the iframe of destination.
How could I accomplish the same behaviour in FF?
Thanks a lot!
I read this, so it should be possible! https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/954986

Hi zensabbah, are you saying you have something like:
<iframe src="myslides.ppt">No PowerPoint Viewer in your browser.</iframe>
<embed src="myslides.ppt" />
There is no Office plugin for Firefox 52 or newer because the only plugin allowed to run is Flash, so neither of those is expected to work.
Instead, you might look into using a service like PowerPoint Online (free with your Outlook/Hotmail account) or a third party service like SlideShare. Those provide an HTML of Flash version of the presentation which is cross-browser compatible.
Example of viewing from OneDrive: https://1drv.ms/p/s!AusmYpecTBblhxOSO5iGYNqWtF8W
For the code to embed the viewer, see: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/embed-a-presentation-in-a-web-page-or-blog-19668a1d-2299-4af3-91e1-ae57af723a60
I read about those solution, but I need to run local pptx with video and animation, no possibility to use html version :)
Thanks anyway for your answer!
Hi Cristian, you will need to use PowerPoint or another app that can run the slideshow.
I do not know an answer, and do not fully understand your question as written (it seems incomplete), but I have some suggestions:
1. Install the Foxit PDF viewer. It has many options and may be able to generate HTML from a Powerpoint file.
2. See if Powerpoint itself is able to generate HTML.
3. IFRAMEs are prevented (for security) if their data is in a different URL domain. A web search can tell you lots more about how to deal with cross-domain references.
