CD Vieo recording : LUSENET : Video CD : One Thread

Dear All, I would like to able to display digital photgraphs on my lounge TV. I have looked at the DVD solution but it is too expensive, however my domestic DVD player will play CD Video?????????????

Can it be done and if so what do I need to do it?

I can burn data CDs but have no CD Video software assuming thats what I need.

There is an excellent guide to making VCD slideshows at You will need a copy of Nero to burn with. You can get a demo copy of Nero at Nero can be used for free for 30 days as a trial version and its functionality is not impared during the trial period. Just to warn you, the main page on loads very quickly, but once you choose to go to the English language section, you might as well go get a cup of coffee, go to the bathroom, etc. because you aren't going to see the English language pages any time soon. labDV is hosted on a free server and it is a very popular site, so the response times aren't real good. Once you finally get to the English language section, the response times are more reasonable or at least they were the last time I went there. has a very good DVD player compatibility list that you should check to see if your DVD player supports CD-R/RW media before you get started.
