    I tried

                <section>
    
    <video data-autoplay src="media/media9a.mp4"></video>

    </section>

    but its a bit buggy still...

    Hey! We now let you upload videos from your hard drive and insert them into the presentation. We automatically transcode to a format that can be played anywhere.

    You can also insert a video by pointing to an external URL. Look for the “Insert from URL” option in the media library.

    Let us know if you have any feedback!

  2. Let the user know how many people is viewing his/her presentation

    You can have maybe a small box in the corner of presentation mode to tell you how many people are viewing you presentation live.

  3. Add YAML to the list of languages for syntax highlighting (code editor)

    YAML Should be added to syntax highlighting.

    Previously it was declined due to highlight.js not having support. This is not the case anymore.

    See: https://github.com/isagalaev/highlight.js/blob/master/src/languages/yaml.js

    Thanks for the heads up. We just updated to highlight.js 9.0.0 which adds YAML. You’ll need to reload the editor for it show up though!

  4. arrange slides in "profile-page"

  6. Add \mathcal support in Math mode

    This is supported in ipython markdown and is pretty standard in most TeX implementations. It is of great use for statistical or probability-oriented decks, since we use cursive letters to denote distributions. (N= Gaussian, U=uniform...)

    We just released support for font changing functions, like \mathcal.

    More specifically we now support: \mathcal \mathbb \mathfrak \mathtt and \mathbf.

  7. Transitions for Fragments

    Would be great to have different transitions for fragments.
    As it stands they just appear, but it would be nice to have them slide in or convex etc.

    Agreed – we’ve made this change. Note that you can also reach the present view via the preview which is available as a green button in the top left.

  9. The support of gifv, webm or video background

    The ability instead of just having images for backgrounds, allowing the user to use various formats for full screen video

  10. Allow reset of timer on speaker view

    Being able to reset the timer on the speaker's view would be nice. It would allow one to get prepared but then still have a valid timer.
    Thanks!
    Matt

    We try to support all SVG. If something isn’t working please let us know by sending a message through the Contact Support link on help.slides.com

  14. Drag and drop to rearrange slides

    The arrange mode gives an overview of the slides but the system for moving them was non-obvious to me and very cumbersome: moving a slide across the deck is requires as many clicks as there are slides!

    I would rather drag-and-drop the slides, perhaps you could have a drag icon/handle.

    We just rolled out the new arrange mode! The new version is entirely drag-and-drop based. Plus, we’ve made it possible to select and drag or delete multiple slides at once so that you can work faster.

    Please let us know if you run into any issues and we’ll address them as soon as possible. Thanks!

  15. Button to quick set opacity to 25%, 50% or 75%

    The Slides for Opacity is terrible UX. I have slides with lots shaped, which I want to enable and disable often, and it kills me, that I have to hit the 50% exactly every time ..

    Alternatively please implement a text-input for this. Sometimes I edit the opacity directly in developer-mode, but it is not really better :/

    This has been changed. Opacity was the only field that was still using our slider input so made sense to converge on the numeric stepper that we use for everything else.

  16. select highlight.js theme for code highlighting

    It would be nice to support changing higlight.js theme.
    The default (zenburn?) code highlight theme is unreadable when presenting on projector.
    At least some black on white would be very useful.

  17. Unlimited Speaker Notes

    I'd like to have more than 300 characters for speaker notes and allow the speaker notes section to be scrollable within the presenter view.
    I usually number my notes so I know when to reference a new fragment in my slide.

    We’ve removed the 300-character limit on speaker notes!

    Notes that are 300+ characters long may not be immediately visible but they can be accessed by scrolling.

    The presentation inside of the embedded iframe is already responsive. However you the embedding site will need to use CSS to resize the iframe element based on viewport size and layout.

    In some cases it might be enough to change the “width” attribute in the embed code to 100%.

  20. Support 16:9 slide aspect ratio

    At conferences, most stages now have a 16:9 aspect ratio. It would be really great if slides will support authoring decks in that format (+ export).
