Support » Plugin: Google Doc Embedder » [Plugin: Google Doc Embedder] .pps document generates "not supported" error message

  • I have uploaded a powerpoint presentation in .pps format to my web site and set up a wp page with the appropriate code to access and display the file. Unfortunately, it generates the following error message.

    Sorry, this type of document is not supported for viewing.

    The file displays properly on my Mac and all the docs I can find about google-document-embedder say it supports .pps (PowerPoint slideshow) format. The following tag is embedded by itself with no other text or coding into a page and the page is called using a link.

    It looks like PPS support may have been removed on Google’s end. Can you try embedding the PPT (or any other PPT) and see if that works? Not a long term solution, I expect, but it would confirm if PPS is removed or just MS Office or PowerPoint viewing is broken as a whole at the moment.

    Thanks, please let me know what you discover.

    The PPT file loads. I’m uploading using the WP media library Add New function. Is it possible that WP is doing something screwy to the file? I notice the icon next to the PPT file has an image that looks like powerpoint screens. The icon next to the PPS file is just a box.

    I tried using a PPS file direc from Google’s viewer (bypassing the plugin) and it also reported a problem with the file type. It appears PPS support was removed. 🙁 Sorry for this inconvenience. If it is added back in the future, the plugin will support it. In the meantime you will have to choose PPT or PPTX files for embedding PowerPoints.



    Fileviewpro is the solution for that problems….

    The note from “johnwalter” is unrelated spam comment, but for anyone else who lands here dealing with PPS issue, support for PPS files was restored in 2.4.4 and later versions of this plugin.
