I want to upload a presentation to share it with the public, but I don't want to install Flash.

On Slideshare, upload does not complete correctly if Flash is not installed.


  • Can upload and view presentations using HTML only. No Flash required.
  • Free to upload.
  • Accepts ODP.
  • Can be viewed by anyone without registration.
  • Not too long (less than 100 characters?), trustworthy-looking URL. For instance presentations.com/nicolas-raoul/future-of-cmis or http://slides.net/213122 is OK, but goo.gl/iu2r3vc is not OK because people can't imagine what is behind, Google Drive is not OK because of the long opaque URLs.
  • No or little advertisement.

Great to have:

  • Visible on mobile by normal web browsers, no need to install an app.
  • On the URL length front, I suggest a URL shortener. I generally hate the things, but if you are afraid of big long URLs, you probably need one. – Michael Kohne Feb 25 '14 at 14:27
  • @MichaelKohne: By "trustworthy" I mean that people will hesitate to click on goo.gl/iu2r3vc because it can redirect them to anything, people will prefer a link like presentations.com/nicolas-raoul/future-of-cmis because they can see what it is about. – Nicolas Raoul Feb 25 '14 at 14:33

    @NicolasRaoul technically that url could just as easily be setup to redirect them to anywhere but I do see that possibly some users of limited knowledge that won't enter their minds - however most people with limited knowledge don't even look at the urls they are going to in my tech support experience. Also How long are you considering Short? – Nick Wilde Feb 25 '14 at 14:37
  • I take it "Upload the presentation to Google Drive" and use Google Doc's presentation viewer isn't an option due to the URL issue? – aendrew Feb 25 '14 at 18:05
  • @aendrew: Yes, unfortunately – Nicolas Raoul Feb 26 '14 at 4:15
