Continually play dvd for a show

I have a two part question:
We have a show coming up soon. I have 12 minutes video (1.2Gigs) we created and I need to have that video repeat itself for the whole day projecting out to Plasma tv. When I play the video on a laptop it freezes in certain parts showing water bubbles. I was thinking of burning it to a DVD, if I do so , how can I get play the dvd continuously?

The second part: I need to go from VGA to HDMI port on the tv, I can't find a cable longer than 6ft and suggestions on how to connect?

Most players will allow repeated looping during playback e.g. VLC media player.

Windoze Media Player, Nero.....

As for the VGA to HDMI, some sort of converter will be required as VGA does not carry sound, so an audio source will also be required. See e.g:

Assuming the file is the issue, I would burn it to DVD and use VLC media player like vop stated.

The other option would be to burn to DVD and ISO the DVD to the local drive and play it that way with VLC.

If the file isn't the issue then just use VLC to play the file directly with looping set.

On the second part, use a VGA cable long enough to get to the TV and then use a HDMI converter.

What is/are the name(s) of the file(s) you are trying to burn?

Are the file(s) iso , avi, or do you see a directory such as VIDEO_TS?

I don't see such directory. The file is a .wmp that plays in Windows media player. I would to play on a DVD player

vopCommented:
Does the file have the extension .wmv (rather than .wmp)? If so, does Nero allow you to add the .wmv file to the list box in the "Disc Content" window and do the sizes of the disk space avilable and file list make sense, and is the target DVD blank and has no scratch, dust, or fingerprints on it to start with?

If the above seems OK, and the disk burn stops part way, it may be that the writing speed selected is too fast for the particular combination of writer and DVD. Nero defaults to maximum writing speed, and tries to guess what speed to use, but this may result in too many write errors and the burn fails. There may be some benefit in slowing down the writing speed, even to 1x. It's also worth looking at the state of the write buffer (if this is shown) to see if this is adequate to maintain writing at the selected speed. The write buffer should spend most of it's time nearly 100% full. Again, slowing down the write speed should improve this and increase your chances of success.

I ended converting the file to .vod and I burned it to a DVD to play continuously.
