Intel Mac :: Burned IPhoto Slideshow But It Will Not Play On DVD Player For TV
Apr 7, 2012
I created a slideshow with itunes music added in iphoto. I tried the recommended free "burn for mac" software download. It burned a dvd but, this will not play on my dvd player for tv. What software title can I purchase that will burn my iphoto slideshow to a dvd that will play on typical home dvd player for tv AND on a windows pc?
iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), Mac OS X (10.7.3)
I'm trying to connect my MacBook to my tv to play a slideshow in iPhoto. I've got just a regular old MacBook and got a mini-DVI to video adapter, as well as a male-male s-video cable to connect the computer to the tv. It gets all connected and on the tv I go to the setting to view it and all I get on the tv screen is the blank desktop, no icons or anything. The only thing that will show up on the tv from the computer is when I go to the display preferences to change the resolution setting. Now, I know the resolution of the computer doesn't totally match that of the tv but past that and the fact that I have them physically connected right now... Why isn't anything from the computer showing up on the tv??
I've made a slideshow (about 24 mins) in iMovie and 'shared' it onto my desktop. I've tried to burn it to dvd (+R) lots of different ways but all failed. I have iDVD on my MAC and am using Mavericks. I'm putting it down to 'pilot error' or possibly my age!
Info: iMac (21.5-inch Mid 2011), OS X Mavericks (10.9.4), iDVD pre-installed
I just bought this iMac in January and I've already had issues with Lion. First it was facetime.... now, I inserted a dvd-r that I already burned which has video files on them. The good thing, at least Lion recognizes that a cd/dvd is in the drive, the bad thing is that the dvd is already burned yet it keeps saying that I inserted a blank disc... which I did not.
i have an .mp4 file, burned a DVD and tried to play it on my commercial DVD on my TV. Doesn't work at all. It works fine if I put the DVD on my MBPro. IS there a system to make it work on my commercial DVD? Sorry for the dumb question but it's my first crack at DVD burning...
We have recorded movies from our TIVO to a DVD burner. Once on the hard-drive of the burner we burn them to DVD. Some, actually most will not play on my mac. It seams that the DVD +R never play and the -R sometimes play. The ones that do play open in DVD player, Quick time , and front row. The ones that do not play, do not play in any program. When it appears in the Desk top I click on the disk and it shows the audio files and the video files in separate folders. Also I have noticed that the DVD's that do play have a number appearing under the disk when it shows up on the desk top and the ones that do not play do not.
Tried but couldn't find an answer to this exact question. Here's the situation: I created a movie project in iMovie, then burned it to a DVD using iDVD. The burned DVD plays in my iMac but will not play in a DVD player. I get a Cannot play this type of disk error message. I used a DVD-R disk (Memorex). I can provide more information if needed to figure this out, but is there a simple answer as to why this would happen? The DVD player says it plays DVD-R disks. The disk works in my computer. Any ideas from the experts?
I'm an avid MAC user and I'm using a MAC BOOK PRO. I burned an AVI movie using Toast Titanium 10 to be played on my home DVD Player(SONY HDMI NS710H). It doesn't play!It plays on our sons portable DVD AND on our computers, but NOT the SONY DVD player!? I've wasted 3 DVD+RDL discs and the same thing. I even tried different movies. Same thing. This is driving me nutz! Apparently this DVD player I bought is supposed to play ALL formats. I don't understand what's going on?
I am trying to burn a slideshow onto CD/DVD so it will play on my TV. I would like to keep my chosen music I have selected for each slideshow. If I export it then the quality is very poor. Is there a way of me achieving my goal?
I burned numerous dvd's with my old Toshiba laptop for all of my videos and such with Windows XP. Now after my Toshiba crapped out and I switched to a Mac I was wondering why when I put the DVD into the laptop (MacBook Pro Intel processor) why I can only see the name of the dvd and not the contents. I hope someone can help me since I hate having to boot up Windows in Parallels and then play using Windows or drag it to my mac partition since this takes time and I just really hate having to see Windows load on my Mac
I want it to look exactly like it does on iphoto. I read somewhere they said to share it with idvd, but it does not look the same. Everything is different from the music to the way the pictures are changed and the timing. Is there a way I can burn it from iphoto (the slide show) to a dvd? If not why is it not the same on idvd?
I may be missing something here so if it's obvious I apologise..
In iPhoto 09 I've created an album of images I would like to use as a slideshow and send that slideshow to iDVD. So, I select all the images, press the slideshow Play button and the slideshow plays. I can change the theme etc, but can't see a way to save this or share to iDVD whilst retaining the slideshow settings.
Am I being really really stupid or is the Slideshow in iPhoto 09 a "view only" from within iPhoto and can't be saved and exported?
I think it may have been possible in 08 but I'm not sure.
Ultimately I want to create 3 x different Slideshows using 3 of the new 09 themes and send them to iDVD, but can see how to save/export/share the slideshow whilst retaining the settings I choose.
I have created a slideshow containing some photos of me and my fiance. Now I need to save this slideshow as a file. I tried to look at the settings and other places to figure it out but unfortunately couldn't do it.
I need this for a little slide in our wedding and it would be much appreciated if anyone have an idea about it.
When I insert the DVDs I have burned from Toast 9 Titanium into both of my DVD players they display "no disk inserted." The movies play fine on my computer, though. Any tips? Can I change a setting on Toast 9 to make the DVDs able to play on my (somewhat older) DVD players?
I am making a slideshow in iPhoto as a birthday present for my mother and would like to make the first slide one with birthday wishes, etc. on it. How do I create and add this type of slide to iPhoto???
I've been trying to burn a DVD from iPhoto's slideshow.
From reading a thread here, I export the Slideshow to iMovie. Which is made into a .mov flie. Then I add some stuff and edited the movie under iMovie. But then I couldn't find a way to burn it unto a non-computer playable format. So I export it from iMovie to iDVD.
So far seems alright.... ready to burn the DVD and all..... but here's the problem:-
1) The oginal photos are around 500MB, after I made it into .mov file... it's like 800MB. After I edited it under iMovie (Just some extra text and all) it became a whopping 9.5GB!!! Too large even for a blank DVD...Have I done anything wrong?
2) Picture quality on iPhoto was excellent.. but when made into .mov the quality was awful...... Anyway to improve the quality?
So, I've created a slideshow, and want to fit music to it. However, whenever I try to do so, the program insists on lingering on the first slide for a full thirty seconds before going on to the next slide. This shouldn't be necessary to make the music fit - all subsequent slides are at just over 5 seconds, and if all slides were just slightly longer than that, it would easily fit. Even if I delete the last slide, it simply makes the subsequent slide lasts 30 seconds.
I cannot get iPhoto out of slideshow mode. It's been playing the same two photos over and over again. Pressing escape does nothing and the same with command Q. I can't get to either bar to force quit iPhoto.
