Thread: DVD Slideshow for instruction

  1. Default DVD Slideshow for instruction

    I plan to create a slide show to show on a large TV that will be used for instruction. I wish to make the advancement of the slides as needed depending on the length of time the audience wishes to spend on it. I would like to control the advancedment of the slides with the DVD Player remote.
    Can this be done? How?

    Yes, just set a marker point for each slide.

    What is a marker Point and how do I set one?

    I'm using a PC with W7. Movie Maker is available and I have the DVDStyler that I have used in the past. What do you recommend that is low cost or free?

    See if this software will enable you to put chapters set for each slide and instead of going back to the menu at the end of playing, will go to the next chapter.

    What software? I looked and looked and did not find anything.

    What I did once, when using a DVD as a sort of Power Point presentation, was just to keep pressing the pause button on the remote to pause the DVD, then press play when you are ready to move on.

    I know it's simple and perhaps crude but it does work.

    Happy Christmas.

    Merry Christmas to you.
    The last is good advice and I may use it. Just thinking how I am going to instruct a class. This is in an Assisted Living Community (rest home is next step). I am a resident here and have been asked if I could teach a class. This because I have demonstrated some expertise in the subject. So before I say "yes" to management here I'm exploring how to do this. A thought that I had was maybe I could use the TV as a monitor. It has a HDMI port as well as my laptop. I think I have a spare HDMI cable around here someplace. I'll give it a try.
    Then I just have to open the folder containing my slides and pick out what ever I like with my mouse.
