Its o.k. thanks ...struggle 8, I think my broblem has been resolved, I will know in a week or so.
This was my problem... Using WinXP Movie Maker I have just joined photographs with fade outs etc. and music, the end result is excellent (as far as I am concerned). I copied the reuls to a new CD, tested it on my PC and it was fine.
I gave it to my friend who has WinMe who, when he played it, saw the Window Media Player appear, heard the music, but saw no pictures of any kind.
He did say that he saw a message saying something like "searching for Codecs" He is not on line, so I must put everthing on a CD for him.
Thanks for the info also A_World_Maker, but I seem to getting nowhere.
I made a music/jpeg slideshow with WindowsMovie MakerXP, it is o.k. running in Windows Media Player ver. 9.0 Each picture fades out and music plays. I copied it to CD and tried it my PC it is fine. I tried it another PC running WindowsME with Windows Media player ver.7.01 Although the music plays there is no picture show. I downloaded "WMPlayer codecs for7 or XP Codecs.exe" copied the file to CD and opened it in the WinME PC, still with the same result, what can I be doing wrong? I am also going to start a new thread (I think).
Thanks for the advice, I will try and get WMPlayer ver 9 to my friend and see if that works, now that I know that codecs are not compatible with different versions I can go from there. I will consider this problem resolved but not enter it as such until I have upgraded.
