We have received the following feature request by email, but we can't answer because the email address is invalid:

1. Integrated countdown (with customizable font)
2. Ability to show / present a internet page
3. Play video from the internet (YouTube / Vimeo / etc)

I hope these options would be considered.
With kind regards,

Hello [...],

1.) This is available as a beta feature. Go to Tools->Customize->Commands->Beta and Drag the Timer onto the Toolbar using the mouse.

2.) We already have that. Go to Insert->Website (URL)... If you don't have that command, then you can get it from Tools->Customize->Commands->Insert

3.) It is usually better to have the videos on your harddisc if you want to show them to your church. You won't get caught by internet failure or slow connections. You can use the following program to download videos from youtube: http://www.youtubedownloaderhd.com/
We have added support for *.flv videos so that you can easily play those videos. Please make sure that you have installed the flash player for Internet Explorer.

Blessings,
Sebastian

I would like the ability to overlay the countdown on top of a slideshow.
