image format for display on TV from dvd drive

I read somewhere that an image can be saved from PS to CD in a format that could be displayed on TV from a DVD drive. Apparently the DVD is able to read the CD and display the picture onto TV. Does anyone know which image format is used and what other procedures must be used?
Please no links please, just the information if possible.
Thanks,
Paul :)

[Webinar] Kill tickets & tabs using PowerShell

Are you tired of cycling through the same browser tabs everyday to close the same repetitive tickets? In this webinar JumpCloud will show how you can leverage RESTful APIs to build your own PowerShell modules to kill tickets & tabs using the PowerShell command Invoke-RestMethod.

you should check your writing software for this purpose. In which formats does it accept images and what is the ideal size top store them in

when i did this last time, i stored jpegs in pal resolution 720x576... obviously your needs might be diff than mine.. but it has always worked for me very well

Zombeem,
What software did you use? sounds like you are on the right track. Did you just save them in a format like say, jpg, and save them to disk or did you have to make them into a movie format, or what? I seen somethingabout saving them to the CD in an mpeg format but i can't find the software to do that. I'm aware that the size and resolution whould have to be standard, but I don't know what that would be.

Whats the difference between a vcd and a cd? what software did you use to save in an mpeg format?
Paul :)

zombeenCommented:
well paul, the difference between vcd and cd is huge . to say the least a vcd is something you can just put into a vcd player and watch movies etc.

most "VCD" writing softwraes comes with dual options of
"dragging" mpeg files in the tracks
as well as
"dragging" jpeg (or other format) image files.
you then have options whether you want to hold the images unitl to you click the next track button or want to display images fopr a fixed time (like a slide show) . you can also obviously sapecify the orde in which the images appear.

i used adaptec easy cd creator when i did all this. what software was shipped with your cd writer?

i'm sure there's an option to write vcds in there too

I guess i mis-phrased the question what I meant was to ask if the cd could be made into a vcd. From what you said, I'm assuming it can. I have and old version that came with My HP 2x rewriter. All the options I have is to create an audio cd or a data cd. Its version 3.5

annasAuthor Commented:
yeah, I think with with version 5 they must have completely overhauled it. I think what must be happening is that the software save a jpg on each track. for data it goes by blocks I guess :( Can you think of any other way I might be able to do it?
Paul :)

thor918Commented:
what is so bad about blocks?

annasAuthor Commented:
Nothing, I thinks that's just the diffence in the way data and pictures are stored. I could be wrong however!
Paul :] Thanks for the links to the upgrades I'm going to check these out now!

Well I checked the links. From 3.5b(which I have) to 3.5c is the only one I can use. There is no way to upgrade from 3 to 4 or 5. If this one doesn't have the video option I guess I'm stuck!

You have a valid licence from your purchase of cdburner.Perhaps it's valid to get the new version?
