Now trying to create a new slide show with my audio for background music......(3 slideshows in project) Works on PC.... but not in burn. Trying to create video file as recommended..... but just one slide show per video?
Also tryed to include some video MP4.... and did not work...?
Hi Dave, ok maybe best to work on the problems separate and keep the test slideshows simple. When creating a video file you can only create one slideshow at a time. Stick with this for now whilst working out the problems.
Also if you got an error when it was ripping a mp3 file, this sounds like your problem? do you know what the error said?
So:- Create a new project, add a couple of picture slides (no video), and add your mp3 music background. Are you able to create a video file that plays back with sound?
If you still get errors when it rips the mp3 files, try other music files instead and see if there is an issue with a particular mp3 file. If there is a problem mp3, could you email me it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what the issue is.
As for importing .mpg video files. I assume they preview ok in the editor? What makes you think they did not load in the burn process? did an error message come up?
Also www.photovidshow.com/extras.html is a link to our video codec packs. If you are having problems importing videos into photovidshow , it maybe worth installing the two codec packs it mentions.
Hi Dave thanks for that. The mp3 you sent worked fine here in PhotoVidShow, so what i think your problem is, is that you have something installed on your machine that is taking over the playing of mp3 files. Normally it is done by some Windows component. What it is using now is probably conflicting with our mp3 ripper.
So you have two possible solutions:-
a) By-pass the problem. Convert the .mp3 into a .wma and use that instead in PhotoVidShow. This is probably worth trying anyway. Zamzar does free conversions www.zamzar.com/
b) Find out what has taken over the playing of mp3’s on your machine and un-install it. This is a bit more technical I'm afraid.
- Download this Microsoft tool (link removed) - Unzip and run the Graphedit executable - Now drag and drop your mp3 into it. This should produce something similar to the attachment picture. - This then shows you what it is using to decode mp3 files. If this does not say mp3 decoder dmo (for windows 7) then what it does say is probably the problem. If it is not obvious how to uninstall it, let us know what is says and I'll help you un-install it.
Hope something here of help Regards Stuart

Sorry forgot to mention. If you have ffdshow installed then it will use that instead. This should work though, as it’s a codec pack we recommend and you probably got it from our website. So i have no idea why un-installing ffdshow should fix the problem, but glad you got it working anyway though.
For your info, the next release of Photovidshow (V4.2.1 onwards) will force use certain decoders if they exist. This mainly applies to video decoders, but would probably also fix your problem as it also applies to mp3 decoders. This next version of PhotoVidShow will be released in a month or so and is free upgrade.
I’ll also update the forum, with this info as it’s useful for other people with similar problems.
