    Here's the link: http://extension.udel.edu/fcs/nutrition/fruits-and-vegetables-slideshow/

    I've tried .pps and .pptx

    Nothing works.

    When I use the larger .pps file I receive a file is too large error.

    When I use the smaller .pptx file I receive "Sorry, we are unable to generate a view of the document at this time. Please try again later."

    I have tried again later, it still doesn't work.

    Hi cmaneering,

    I tried opening the source file (PPTX) itself in PowerPoint, but it prompted me for a password. That would be my first idea of what the issue is. Not sure if your PPS suffers from the same fate, though.

    Alternatively try to save the file as PPT as some Office 2007+ format files are a bit wonky at the moment in Google's viewer.

    Hope that helps.

    The file size as .ppt is 24.9MB

    Your PDF contains a large number of images. You should optimize it for web before saving to reduce file size. Take a look at this, or several similar links on the web for help:

    Thank you but I think I'll just find a plugin that actually works the majority of the time.

    That's a bit of a low blow, a 25MB file is excessive for online use by any standard and that isn't any fault of this plugin. Feel free to use whatever solution you wish, but that doesn't mean this plugin is defective.
