Most dvd players say they will play windows media files and mpeg files but check to make sure by looking at the instructional booklet that came with your dvd player. If you intend on sending these out to family members then you might check with them as to what their dvd players can play as well.
I use a mac so the native iMovie and iDVD that came with it does an excellent job for me... if I'm not mistaken there is a program that comes with XP home that allows you to do much the same as well. BTW, I still have to decide the format I output to with iMovie so it goes back to the original issue of what your dvd players' capabilities are.
I'd like to create photo CD's or DVDs whick play a slideshow along with
music in the background. I tried dragging & dropping the .jpeg files &
.mp3 audio to a CD & burning it but that didn't work in my DVD player.
It dispayed the pix OR played the audio but not both simultaneously.
What's the best way to achieve this?
I have lots of software but it's dizzying to figure them out. I have the following: Pinnacle Studio ver. 8, OfotoNow, Roxio Videowave Movie Creator, Virtual CD ver. 7, Apollo DVD Copy, DVD Shrink 3.1 & Nero StartSmart.
