Recommended Posts

I have photoshows that I have created over the past 7 years using Roxio 5. I am in the process of converting everything over to my new Win 7 PC. Is there any software available to put on my Win 7 machine that will allow me to view these old photoshows?

I tried creating DVDs of old photoshows on old machine and I get a "video export failed" message.

I tried creating CDs of the old photoshows and a CD gets created but the photoshow that plays only has one photo.

HELP!!

What do you mean by "photoshows"? Are they video files? In what format? You have not given us much information at all to work with.

Sorry for not providing complete info. I really appreciate that you are willing to help me.

 

When I used Roxio 5, it would create a file which had the file name XYZ.photoshow where "photoshow" was the file suffix. I have moved all of the these files from my old XP PC to my new Win 7 PC.

 

I don't know if these are "video" files, but I know that they will not open with the standard video file viewing tools such as Windows Media Player.

 

Using Roxio 5 over the past 7 years, I was able to post my photoshow to a website. Here is a link to one of the photoshows on the website: http://www.photoshow.com/watch/Ch8ay6Yc

 

On the website they will create a CD for you but it costs an arm and a leg. It also says you can save the videoshow as an MP4 video. When I click on that option it indicates that creating that type of video may take "a few hours". Do you know what product I could get to read that type of video if I download all of my photoshows from the website in that format?

 

I welcome any suggestions that you might have.

It is an mp4 file. There are two choices. The one to try first is the free VLC player (link). It plays just about everything.

 

The second choice would be Quicktime. mp4 is a modified Apple format.

Steve, is clb1947 talking about PhotoShow 5? He mentions Roxio 5 but as far as I know the Creator 5 version did not do "PhotoShows" certainly not the type as shown in his link.

I took it to mean that was one of the OPs PhotoShows using Version 5 of Photoshow. This topic is misplaced if so but the advice is correct. Yes, it would be nice if some posters took the time to look down the list of the various sections of the forum and post in the correct place. Perhaps the OP just saw the "5" and thought it was part of Easy CD Creator 5? If the poster comes back and confirms what I suspect, we can move the post -- no harm done but the response would have been less confusing.

Per your suggestion, sknis, I tried to open the photoshow files which QuickTime (version 7.6.8) but received an error message Error - 2048: Couldn't open the files because it is not a file that QuickTime understands.

 

I'll try the other software that you provided the link to now.

Downloaded the VLC player but it does not play the photoshow either.

It does not support photoshow as a file suffix. Do you think it would work if I changed the file suffix to MP4? how to I do that?

 

Now you have us all confused ! :blink: The downloaded shows should not have a (name).photoshow file name. What are you really doing? Those files that you moved are probably gone forever.

 

Was that your PhotoShow that you provided a link to? How did you download it to your computer? After you got that emessage that it will take some time to do the conversion, did you get an e-mail with a link to download it? If so, it should already be a mp4 file and VLC will play it.

You have everyone confused.

 

 

There is no other software that can "open" a file with the extension "photoshow".

 

If you are using PhotoShow 5 why are you posting in the Creator 5 forum? Those programs have nothing to do with each other.

 

Exactly what program are you using? Got to Help/About and tell us what it says

 

What is the full name of the file you are trying to open, including the extension?
