    Digital pics on DVD Player, "how to" question


    I have some digital pics I would like to burn to a cd/dvd media so i can put in in my dvd player and scroll thru them on my tv. I can hook the camera directly to the tv and see them, but i would like to make my own collection. How do you go about this? Do i have to burn in a special format? I looked thru the k3b manual and didnt find anything like this in there.

    Well I guess this is gonna depend a lot on the make / model of your dvd player and how old it is.

    As an educated guess I would first try a normal data dvd, with jpeg encoded images in the root of the dvd (not in folders)...

    see if ur dvd player can handle that...then maybe try putting the pics in folders...try other formats....

    hmmm

    Ok, what about turning your series of jpegs into a movie...just have each picture shown on screen for a few seconds (or however long you want) and save it as a mpg and put that on the dvd.

    Not sure exactly what softwares you would need, but linux has a few good movie editors, and dvd authoring softwares...have a search arround.

    Or possibly if you could get some software which would allow you to put in chapters (can't help you on that one sorry) it could be possible to skip through them. A lot of retail DVDs these days have photo gallerys on them.

    This was the software i saw (only for windows) I figured linux had something even better. Im going to try burning a data disc and run it on a newer dvd player. I can see the directory tree of my pics on my tv, but when i select a file, it says (searching for mp3 file.....) then it stops. I will keep on it and post when i figure something out.
