4. Creating a DVD playable in a DVD player
Soundslides and Soundslides Plus do not produce DVDs playable in a DVD player, but you can still convert your slide show to DVD using the instructions below.
Note: DVDs look good on televisions, but not as good on computer monitors. Many people do not view them at normal size on a computer, and producers cannot set the preferred scaling by default for computers.
First, you will need to convert your slide show to a video file following the instructions here.
Once you have your video file, you will need to convert it to a DVD playable in a DVD player using DVD-authoring software. There are several free and paid applications for this purpose, and we have recommended two free ones below that were suggested to us by users.
Note: Soundslides, LLC is not affiliated with these projects, and does not provide support for issues you may encounter while using these applications.
Mac OS X: Users have recommended Burn, a free, open-source application that can create a wide range of video discs including DVD-Video, VideoCD and DivX formats. To learn more and download Burn, click here.
