I do presentations for educational courses (university, college, schools). Many slides, lots of videos and pictures.I had been using WPS presentation software (kingsoft) on Ubuntu 16.04 LTS; since it allowed me to insert videos. As of now whenever I insert a video or a picture it hangs. I need to reboot the software. This issue persists despite updating the software or reinstalling the software with the latest update

Is there any other software which can

  1. Be installed on the Linux laptop (free version or open source)
  2. Has inbuilt slide transitions
  3. Can insert videos (2 min - 7 min)
  4. Can handle large pictures
  5. Has some learning tools or videos for initial hang of the software.

[I have tried using Latex Beamer but I am not sure if videos can be inserted and slide transitions are available.] TIA

  • Pardon the obvious, but is OpenOffice Impress not an option? – Bruce Becker Jul 6 '19 at 7:34
  • I assume it shall run on Linux, as you mentioned having used Ubuntu? – Izzy Jul 6 '19 at 9:25
  • Impress is having trouble with plugins. I'm not able to install them. – BRMBU Jul 6 '19 at 15:52
