This is the freeware version, which is feature limited:

Info:

You need another program to convert to DVD, this may be suitable:

Free Video to DVD Converter

You would have to buy one of the PRO versions, for a one-stop operation.

Thanks for the information. I actually just want it so that I can put my slide show on youtube so I can then share it to FB. So I'm assuming I wouldn't need the program to burn the dvd, correct? Again you have no idea how appreciative I am that you take the time to answer my questions.

I downloade the program and it asks for a registration code so it looks like it needs to be purchased. I also tried wondershare and it lets you use it but it has a stamp on it that appears on the slides and in order to have the stamp removed you need to purchase that one also. I guess one doesn't exist.

Which program asks for a reg code.
Wondershare requires a keycode, in exchange for your name and email address; neither the site, nor the information link gives any indication about watermarks,etc.

Did you click on 'Get the keycode free' just above the Download Button on the Wondershare site.
It's the same program, the second link is just info.

I didn't see that. So I clicked it gave the information it asked for and when it downloads it asks for the keycode or you can buy it. It doesn't give a free keycode.

Did you check your E-mail?
That's usually how a keycode is sent, when you have to register for the software.

Yes I check my email frequently. Is there anyway you can try and download it to see if you get different results? I really don't think it is a program offered free. Thanks.

Hello Victoria.

It is a free program. Apart from the fact that it is called 'Wondershare PPT2Video Free', if you look at the first link and the left hand column, it says 'Price - Free'. I think we can believe them.

OK, I downloaded the program, got the keycode and now have the free program working. I was going to try it anyway, because I have Powerpoint.

When you click on 'Get the keycode free' you should get a box asking for your name and valid email address.
Underneath that there should be an orange graphic box showing a key symbol and saying 'Get Keycode'.
If you don't see that graphic, click directly under 'Agree to receive tips and special offers', until it appears,
then click the graphic and you should get a 'submission successful' screen. The email with the keycode was sent to
me immediately.

When you start the program for the first time, you have to enter the email address you supplied and the reg code from their email - just copy and paste and click 'Register'.

It may be a validation problem; when I tried to use my gmail email address, I got 'input error' so had to use my ISP account email address and my full name.

Would you like to try again.

It certainly works, I have created a .wmv file without watermarks, but having regard to the limited capabilities, I will not be keeping the program. If you liked the program, you might feel that it was worth buying the PRO version, to avoid the limitations.

If your PP presentation just consists of a series of pictures, you may be better off with Windows Movie Maker, which will also give you a .wmv file for upload.

There's no point in me PM ing you the regcode; it is unlikely to work with your email address.

I do NOT have the orange box that shows the key symbol. It's completely blank under the the registration box. I thought maybe it was my fire fox browser so I opened IE and it still it the same. I am going to call the contact number and see if they can help me. I was looking for a way to paste the picture of the screen on here but I don't see any attachment button and it wouldn't copy.

I received an email back from them and I am posting below. Apparently the free program only allows the first 5 slides. So much for "free". Oh well it was worth a try. Just thought you might like to know. Have a great weekend!
