Windows Movie Maker to display in a shop

  madmart2 13:25 28 Jan 2017


I've used the free version of Windows Movie Maker to create a slideshow that I would like to display in my shop. If I download it to a memory stick and get a monitor from PC World, will it play automatically - and will it keep repeating as it's only 20 mins long - yes, I'm trying a bit of diy digital signage - please help..

You will need some form of Computer between the Stick and the Screen, I'm not sure about this, I will leave others to correct me, but a Raspberry Pi may be sufficient

oh dear - is there no such thing as a plug in and play system - I'd never heard of a raspberry pi until now...

You can use almost any Computer. Just that you can get a brand new raspberry pi for less than £20,00

How about using a cheapie TV with built in DVD or usb player to play your movie? You could burn your movie to DVD or put it on a usb stick.
