    Question Music file for Irfanview slideshow

    A couple of questions - probably for Speedy, who helps me out of pickles often!

    I am making a slideshow with Irfanview.
    1. Do I need to have just one music file to run with the slides, or can I use several music files?

    2. If I just need one file (of say three different tunes) how can I cobble these together? With which program?

    3. Anything else I should need to know?

    As always - TIA. I appreciate the help I get here!

    Cheers
    R.M.
    Now-if I could just remember where I left my brain...

    Dont know about Irfanview, I dont use it.

    I know Nero Express can do a slideshow, with Music and pics.

    And then you can burn whatever to make a DVD, VCD, or SVCD.

    BUT, for some options, you need the DVD video plugin.

    Dont know if this gets installed with it, or not.

    You could try this

    But, I dont know if it can do slideshows, never used it.

    You could edit the tunes together in Audacity which is free, although there is no good free software available for putting a slide show together with a sound track for Windows.
    I just use iPhoto

    That link you just posted looks pretty good for $49 Speedy

    Impressive, they are almost getting their sh*t together. Except that it doesn't mention music tracks from what I can see.
    I'm just about to download it and have a look at it.

    I gave up - Windows validation error - too hard, can't be bothered.

    What browser did u use WMG??

    If FF 2.0.0.8, it may not have worked, coz theres a bug in it, which screwed Java and Flash up (which would also stuff validating in Windows).

    That would explain a few things thanks Speedy. FF is my browser of choice (despite the "miriad" of choices "offered" by IE and MS
    I will give it a whirl in MS's perferred browser.

    Just having a "play" right now...... it's "ok" but I wouldn't cross the road to use it.

    give me iPhoto ANY day
