Unable to burn jpeg files to a VCD using K3b


I have had K3b installed and have been able to burn audio CD's for some time. K3b version is 0.9, using KDE 3.1.3. My Distro is Mandrake 9.2.

I want to be able to take Jpeg's from my digital camera and burn them to a CD. I want to be able to take the Vcd and drop it in my DVD player attached to the TV and watch the pictures.

I started a emovie project. I can create a list of jpegs to burn, when I click burn, I get a message saying I can't find the e-movie installation.

What software am I likley missing? I had a look at www.k3b.org but couldn't find an answer.

I'm still dual booting to W98. I have Nero installed on the W98 side. I was able to burn a VCD with Nero, and I can play it on my DVD - TV, so I know it can be done, and my hardware is working.

I search the forum, but could not find much information on making VCD's.

I would like to get this going, I could use the 4 gig of disk space w98 is using.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find much in the way of good software for VCD-creation in Linux.

As far as I am aware, VCD supports exactly one visual format: MPEG1. Jpeg is not directly supported, so any software you may have been using to burn Jpegs to VCD probably converted them to single-frame MPEG1 video first. With VCD 1.1, still images had to be converted to short video segments (say, 5 seconds) to be able to view them; VCD 2.0 supports still images at 704x480 NTSC (704x576 PAL), but they must be MPEG1 format. ImageMagick can do conversion of Jpeg to MPEG1, so you may want to check that out.

If you're interested in doing VCD authoring in Linux, I'd recommend Michael Tam's guide; you will probably have to get your hands dirty a bit and use some command-line tools for format conversion before burning things to CD using K3B. I am not even sure K3B currently supports use of the SEGMENT folder (where still images must reside), but I have not used it much so I'm afraid I can't help with that.

Good luck!
