Supported presentation applications
OctoCue has been primarily built to support PowerPoint shows, but can also be used with the following:
- Google Slides
- Keynote (on macOS)
Using OctoCue with something else? Great! Let us know and we'll add it to our list.
#Presenting PDF files
OctoCue can control PDF files:
- On your show machine (the one running OctoCue receiver), open your show PDF file in Google Chrome
Fit to page
- Enter full-screen mode -
Chrome will respond to the same
Page Down /
Page Up key presses that OctoCue uses to control PowerPoint. Makes sure your Chrome window has focus!
PowerPoint for macOS does not support add-ins - so while the slides will change just fine, there will be no live notes returned to the clickers.
We don't offer a Keynote add in, either.
#Controlling Companion / vMix / NASA launch control
In addition to emulating key presses, OctoCue Receiver can output OSC, UDP and TCP messages.
Take a look at the advanced receiver configuration page for details.
