Can I convert .DPS file for viewing Windows Media Player

Postby cupacof » Sat Aug 23, 2008 1:02 am

Hi- I'm a newbie in using Corel Picture Show 4. I recently created a picture/audio slideshow in SVCD format and burned it to a CD-RW. However, I also wonder if it is possible to view this slideshow on the computer using Windows Media Player, RealPlayer, QuickTime or another type of viewing program? When I've tried to open the slideshow file using any of these programs, I receive an error message that the program cannot read the .DPS format. Can I convert the file? The reason I ask is that I would like to share the file (via a personal FTP site) with a relative in another part of the country who does not have access to the Corel Picture Show 4 program for viewing the file. Thank you.

Welcome to the forums,

Yes you should be able to. I don't use DVD PS4, however this is taken from the User Guide, Page#45:
Saving the slideshow as a separate video
Save a specific slideshow from your project as a video file.
1. Click the Slideshow tab under Theme.
2. Click Save Slideshow as Video File and select a video quality
from the list.
3. Enter a location where you want to save the video in Save in.
4. Type in a file name and click Save.
*Select Customize to set your own video format and settings*
