DVD Slide Show in Fedora Linux 9.0Posted: December 5, 2008
It is very easy to make a DVD slide show for Pictures captured from Digital Camera.I have used the few simple steps given below.
1. #yum install dvd-slideshow
2 #dir2slideshow -n “familyslideshow” -t 3 /dir-for-pics
The command above will create a text file, that will be used in next command.
“familysildeshow” is name of slide show. “-t 3” is the time gsp betweem photo show.
3. #dvd-slideshow -n “familyphotos” -f <textfile-created in step 2>
this command gives me error of BIT Rate
To solve that i did the following steps
4 # vi /usr/bin/dvd-slideshow
go to line number 661
changed ac3=1 to ac3=0
again run the same command in step #3
it will create a file with extention .vob. In my case i got familyfotos.vob
Now to run the slide show we need “mplayer”
so steps are
1 # yum install mplayer
it will install mplayer
to run slide show the command is very simple
this command will run a slide show with all photos in a directory we have.
Slide show starts (Image above)

we can add music to slide show with the same command with more options.
Its really a great utilty
