What format is the video and how long is it? Remember that the video will only disply for 10 seconds.

Ig the program can't find them, the format is probably not supported. Have you looked at the codecs used in the file. gspot will tell you what codec is used for the files. (I didn't make up the name!)

 

This is for Photoshow 6.

 

Video Support

 

•File types: AVI, MPEG1, MOV, WMV, MP4, MV4, and QT

•Maximum file size per photo: 50 MB

•Maximum number of images per show: 400

 

I can't find the page where I found the original information I posted. Clearly a 50 MB file can be longer than 10 seconds depending on the format. By the way, if the videos are AVI, then that may be an issue since not all AVI files are the same. For example DivX and XVid are AVI file types but I don't think those are supported. I doubt that M-jpeg is supported either because that has never been supported in the other Roxio software.

 

Noticew that mpg2 files are not supported. That has recently changed in Photoshow 6.

Again I ask what format are the files and where did you get them? Remember that any DRM protected files cannot be used. Some videos downloaded from YouTube also can't be used because of the same reason. The information on video in Photoshow is very limited.

WMV video type only supported in www.photoshow.com, WMV video type don't supported in PhotoShow 5 and PhotoShow 6.

 

Yes, I see that now for the Photoshow Desktop requirements in this Kb article.

 

I gather that the OP is using the on-line photoshow 6 for wmv files (so they are seen) and the desktop version of 5 where they are not supported.
