One of OnSync's most popular use is to upload and display files to other users in your session. You may want to present a PowerPoint file, or review a Word file with your colleagues. In order to do that, some files require you to hit the "convert" button before being able to display these files to other users. That will convert the file onto a format wh...
Files with the following extensions can be opened immediately after upload: swf, jpg, jpeg, png, gif, mp3, mp4, flv, m4v, f4v, f4a, f4b, f4p, mov (most), mp4v, m4a, 3gp (most), 3g2 and aac. Out of the list above, you can choose to convert the following to a smaller, optimized size: mp4, flv, mov Other filetypes can either be uploaded and converted o...
For PowerPoint files: 1. Make sure you do not include macros on your slides. For safety reasons we have to disable all macros and that should work fine, but there can be cases where the presence of macros will cause the conversion to cancel. 2. Make sure you do not embed ActiveX components in your slides (such as external video). This causes stabili...
When creating your powerpoint, right click onto the text you want to link and manually reassign the hyperlink using the "hyperlink" menu item. If this does not work, make sure to remove any Word Art. Applying Word Art will result in this text being rendered as a bitmap image rather than a clickable link. Remove Word Art styles by right clicking, then se...
Click the + button you use to add files. Select "Add directory". A folder will be created in your Media Library and you'll be able to sort your files.

The Video will then appear in your Media Library. Double-click the link from your Media Library or drag and drop it to you content viewer to open it for all users in the meeting...
It seems that you have set your original PowerPoint presentation to change slides every few seconds. That is the reason, the slides are automatically advancing. You should change the slide show settings of your original presentation file and then upload it again in OnSync.
OnSync converts only the active sheet of the excel file. Hence, when saving the Excel file, make sure you have set the sheet you want to display in the class as the active sheet.
We recently increased the file size allowed from 30MB to 100MB For files that you do not plan to open in the Content Viewer (but merely post to the "Shared Files" area of Media Library in order for participants to download), the limit is 100 MB.

You'll notice participants will see the complete file, showing on their screen: [http://www.screencast.com/t/bFmKYxyxyZ] In order to share a file, you must drag the file that you would like to share with the rest of attendess, from the "_Media L...
300MB is a very big file size for web conferences, we lead the field in terms of file sizes we allow. Most competitors allow 100MB or less.

If however you abosolutely need to share a very big file, like for example a longer video file, you have two ...
OnSync's amazing multimedia capabilites allow you to present even large media files. Since OnSync's media library has an upload limit of 100MB you can use the _"Add from URL"_ feature to add large video files from YouTube or a web server: Each approach offers its own set of advantages and disadvantages. While it is our belief that the YouTube method i...
