I have begun to look for a new DVD player and noticed that lot of them now mention JPEG Viewer, but not a lot of details. At first I though great, I have about 5,000 JPEG pictures I will burn to CD and be able to slide show them on my TV. The more I looked into the more complex the subject got. I will explain what I have learned and maybe some of you that have used them can share your experience also. I have searched the forum and only found little tidbits, but very little use yet. The key thing is that the JPEG player expects a certain format and if it is not in that format it won't work. The two most common is DCF (Design rule for Camera File System) and HighMAT. The purpose of the format is to allow pictures to be moved between different brand cameras, printers, memory devices and PC and still work. I haven't seen HighMAT on any Cameras as it is coming from a MS PC focus, but allows you to include PlayLists. Many people complain that the JPEG players play sequentially though you can choose what directory or folder to start from. DCF http://it.jeita.or.jp/document/publi...f_eng/Dcfe.pdf DCF2 Draft http://tsc.jeita.or.jp/avs/data/cp3461.pdf HighMAT http://www.highmat.com/ Coming from the PC side, the DCF format is the least friendly to me as it requires me to rename all my photos to generic looking names, add thumbnails and save in a EXIF format. But it is the most compatible if wanting to use with Photo printers or reload in other devices. For me once the photo is downloaded to my PC it never goes back. I haven't seen enough about HighMAT yet to know how flexible it will be, but I know that Movie Maker2, XP, and Media Player9 can write HighMAT CDs. It is limited to 999 photos per CD. A future version of HighMAT will support DVD, but don't know how many more files it will support at that time. Of course you will need to buy a new DVD player at that time to play them. I have only seen HighMAT on Panasonic players at this point, so that limits you. They do have some very good players though DVD-S55s on up support it. The DVD-S35S only supports DCF. What I would like to do in this thread is to discuss how to take JPEG photos that we have edited with Photoshop or other software and get them back into something that can be viewed on a DVD Player supporting DCF or HighMAT. I would also like to collect what your experiences have been good or bad or tips and tricks for the best display.
