Can't View Slide on Android Remote

I'm using the Android remote to run Open LP during our service. I can see all the slides created in Open LP (songs, scripture, etc.), but I can't see the sermon slides. I create them in powerpoint and upload to Open LP with no problem. They show up on our screens just fine. When I go to the remote, though, all I can see is the title of the slide. I can click it and cause it to show up on the monitors, but I can't see the content of the slide on the remote. It would be really helpful to be able to read from the tablet rather than controlling from the tablet and looking at another screen to read the slide. I've tried uploading different types of powerpoint files (ppt, jpg, pdf), but none of them work. Can anybody help me figure this out?

Thanks in advance for any help!


  • Have you tried to switch to the "Live View" on the android remote?  I am using Windows 10 with OpenLP 2.4.6 and the 2.0 version of the android remote app....using the live view lets me see the slide as it is displayed on the main projector.  And you can advance the slide from the same don't get to see the title of the next slide, but being able to read the PowerPoint slide is a fair trade off!
    Give it a try.  If it isn't what you need, let us know.....who knows what we can do to help!
