Is there any free software that can convert jpgs ( powershot A75 ) into a movie file so that I can play it on VCD player. Your kind help will be highly appreciated.

Thanks.

I think VCDEasy can do what you need. Check the link and see what you think. The latest version is Trialware but there is an earlier version 1.1.5.2that is Freeware. Hope it's useful to you.:-)

There is a newer company to the market called Luminous Parrot. They have a free for 30 days software that allows you to create a slideshow. I ama thinking about purchasing the software because it has a very cool Mosaic feature it in.

Thank you Mr jackRussell, I have tried to download vcdeasy 1.1.5.2 freeware but I think it is not available for download as the new version has been released. Is there any way I can get that freeware (if it is small file it can be emailed ? )

You can find that version here http://202.169.46.228/preview/260392.html

I personally don't use this program, so can't provide any information other than the link.

Hello Hari,

Here is a link to several different choices. There was only one that was listed as free, but maybe you can give the free trials a whirl and see which one you like. Maybe one of them is worth buying.

Here is a link to Photo Slide Show. This software also looks like it may do what you need. I did notice that the commercial license is $35.00, but they do provide a free trial as well.

Good Luck!

They don't market VCD players in the US, so I don't know how they work. I'm guessing you must be in Asia. Many DVD players will play JPGs recorded directly to CDR. You might check whether your VCD player will do that. It simplifies things in that you can view your archive CDs without having to make separate VCDs.

i just came back from a camping trip, and i have about 680megs of pics and video clips...is there a way to burn them all onto one cdr that can be read by my dvd player? id like to be able to view both the pics, and watch the movies from the same cdr... the movies are avi right now, so i assume id have to convert them to svcd (mpeg4) but i dont know if i should burn them in folders on the cd or direct, with no use of folders...

my dvd player supports vcd and svcd, but i dont know if it supports jpegs.. any help is appreciated... thanks

A program that I have enjoyed using for a couple of years is MemoriesOnTV. It can be used to create VCD, SVCD or DVD's. It can create slide shows using pictures as well as viedo clips (mpg, avi, mov, mp4) without having to convert the file types yourself. It also provides an option to archive your pictures into folders on the vcd/dvd when you create the disk. They have a free trial version that you can download from http://www.picturetotv.com/ .
