The problem is I'm not sure what this means..
"And last do you save the file as AUTORUN.INF , remember to select Save as file type: All files in Notepad. Now it is just to drag that autorun.inf to root folder when creating the VCD example like this in Nero creating a VCD:"
I know it means to save the text:
open=start mplayer2.exe /play /close \MPEGAV\avseq01.dat)
Do you include the word *autorun* and where do you save it at?
Yes, type that two lines and save it to anywhere (c:\my documents\) as
AUTORUN.INF !!not AUTORUN.INF.txt!!
That means, save as file type: All files !!not text file!!
Then open Nero and add AUTORUN.INF to the directory structure of the VCD (like explained in the example)
Thank you for your reply!
I know what to do now.
Another option is get a copy of I-VCD Player. It's a small program (couple of KBytes) that you can add to the VCD. This player is freeware. You have to add three files to the root of the VCD: ivcdp.exe (the player) gui.dll (library) and autorun.inf.
If you leave an email address I'll send you these files. What I like about this method is that it'll always work because it's not dependent on what's installed on the Windows PC and how. You'll supply the PC with the necessary software. I noticed that it also works with "chaptered" VCD's (Media Player maybe too, haven't tried that yet).

Note that the tech tip file ... at least currently leaves out the important "Start" command at front of line... that drove me crazy for a while....................
Also, mplayer2 does support the /fullscreen switch if desired:
open=start mplayer2.exe /play /fullscreen \MPEGAV\avseq01.dat
Well... I'm working on a low budget charity project and we are trying to create a "marketing" CD and I wanted to do a "slideshow" from a bunch of digital images that would run on a computer and a DVD player ... geezzzzzzzzz you'd think that wouldn't be too hard eh?
Alas... it is, like many things, harder than it looks.....
Thanks ... alas no Macs here ... but I may need one soon
In case anyone else has the issue I have downloaded the "Media Player Classic" files from SourceForge
I "upgraded" from VCD to DVD format using Nerovision Express
and put that and the vts_01_1.vob file in the top level of the CD.
open=start mplayerc /fullscreen vts_01_1.vob
I realize this is "bad form" as I've created a video CD that's not really a video CD format but... um it works.... and I'm kinda in a hurry it works well for the Windows world... going to Mac would be another step.... I think this would work for VCD as well.
also the Mplayerc only works on XP and W2k but there is a version for 9X.
I have not tested yet, but think the following batch file would test for the version of the OS and then play correctly... I did it so no promises but ... hey if it helps somebody let's rock!
