Introducing HTML5 Player for iPad and iPhone

By May Allen on November 16, 2010

Introducing SlideRocket's HTML5 Player

We’re thrilled to introduce SlideRocket’s HTML5 player, enabling powerful presentations and on iPad and iPhone. Now you can present with panache whenever opportunity knocks.

With SlideRocket’s HTML5 player, you’ll have beautiful animated builds, artistic transitions, even audio and fullscreen HD video wherever you or your viewers may be. Simply publish your presentation and view it on iPad or iPhone.

I’m looking forward to seeing SlideRocket presentations on iPads and iPhones at Ironside, my favorite lunch spot in the SOMA neighborhood of San Francisco. Where will you present next?

    Wow, this is awesome news! Can’t wait to try it out. Now all you need is a way to control SlideRocket presentations on the iPad with the iPhone. I’ve been using eProjector, which is an app you put on both devices, and configure so that the iPhone functions as a remote for the presentation shown on the iPad. It uses Bluetooth, and it is very reliable. Perhaps you guys can come up with this last piece and make what you’re offering perfect?

    Why does it not work with Android?

    I’d like to try the HTML5 player on my other HTML 5 browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera, etc.), do I have to fake the browser string or something, or can you give an URL to try. The link in the article gives me Flash.

    @m106 – Android support is coming very soon.

    @Guttorm The SlideRocket HTML5 player was specifically designed for Safari on iPhone and iPad and uses CSS3 features like touch gestures, 3D transforms and hardware acceleration that are only available on those platforms. We look forward to the adoption of HTML5 standards across all browsers so that we can run the HTML5 player on desktop browsers too.

    @May Allen

    Lame excuse. Chrome, Safari, and other modern browsers are perfectly capable of most HTMLS (obviously not touch). It’s lazy to just offer Flash for these desktop platforms when they do support the majority of HTML5 features.

    Detect the browser and offer the proper player (Flash or HTML5). If it’s an ancient IE6 browser, use Flash. If it’s a modern Chrome browser, use HTML5.

    @LD

    Unfortunately, it’s just not the case that the same HTML5 features work equivalently across all browsers today. Currently, only Safari supports the 3D transformations and hardware acceleration we use to create the animations and transitions in the SlideRocket HTML5 player. These features are not available today in Chrome, Firefox, IE, or Opera.

    Given the lack of parity across desktop browsers, we chose to focus on enabling support on mobile devices that don’t play Flash and continuing to use our existing Flash-player on the desktop.

    tested on my iphone 4… impressive, but still some glitches that need to be worked out. this will be useful on the ipad for showing clients presentations n things like that, especially with the touch scrool

    Great! I’ve been waiting for this feature for a long time. Well… since august that is. I’m just such an enthusiastic evangelist of SR that I’m happy I can prove my co-workers wrong about the supposed “iPad-unfriendliness” of SR!
    There are still some glitches though. Especially with builds and slide navigation. I generally use SR as an eMagazine solution which requires me to disable users from serially navigating the slides. I want to be able to dictate the way users navigate through my “magazine”, because certain eMag-like effects take up several slides to simulate. In the current build links I have added simply do not work as designed and manually traversing the slides is switched on, while in the flash-based version they are switched off. Will these issues be addressed in future iterations?
    Other than that: kudo’s to the SR team. Love your tool!

    This is wonderful, but I was wondering if there was a way to download the presentations so you don’t have to be online. Our sales reps visit remote rural areas and don’t have an online connection to show presentations.

    Do you have to download it from a desktop then sync with the iPad?

  14. May

    November 18, 2010 @ 1:57 pm

    @Brad Z You have to have an internet connection to view. Since, the publish link is live, presentations played through the HTML5 player are automatically updated when you make changes to the presentation. No syncing necessary!

Don’t want to spend any more money to find that other packages won’t work either.
