File Save As: Avi, WMF, or any video file format.
Presentations have a added value if not all systems support a presentation easily but a video file is accepted easily.

As of LO 184.108.40.206.beta2 on Ubuntu 14.04, there's Flash export support:
File -> Export -> Macromedia Flash (SWF).
Flash export has a few limitations:
bug 50792 - FILESAVE: Slideshow transitions and automatic progression lost when exported to Flash
bug 43526 - Impress functionality request: Exporting a Presentation containing audio narration to FLASH
There's an open bug to support converting a presentation to video, but that bug includes support for a screencast-style recording of the voice of the presenter:

It would be nice to have a simple export to video, with no voiceover support. It would include all of the slides, animations, and embedded audio/video clips.
An open format would be preferred -- perhaps WebM so it could play in a browser (Firefox, Chrome/ium, etc..).
Status -> NEW

As I wrote in #94000, the AVI format also should be supported because it would make it easy to play video files on TVs, without a computer.
Please add support for a standard video format. It doesn't matter whether it's .avi or .mp4 or what encoding it uses, as long as it's one of the (several different) ones supported by major video players.
Once that export exists it will be trivial to use video applications to convert it to other encodings, so just adding support for one standard export format would be amazing.
Same request here.
For implementation I think maybe it is to record the presentation directly to a simple video file (even avi files with motion jpeg).
Video encoding sounds like a can of worms to me. You can easily convert the SWF into any other format, even online. My take: WFM.
