Anyone know of a slide player for vids - not photos?

Postby Paz_Pazzaz » Thu Sep 12, 2019 3:30 pm

Windows Media player can run a series of still images, one after another, minimum 1 minute each, in a continuous loop, free with Windows.

Anyone know of something similar that could run short, 15 - 30 second videos, in a similar fashion? Does not have to be free.

thanks,

Paz

VLC is really a great free player and does so much :)

Windows Media Player will play a playlist of videos. You can have the playlist loop.

Windows Media Player is under Windows Accessories in the Start menu.

Power Point, VLC, and Windows will play videos???

Thanks guys!


The lady I'm trying to help has been using Windows Media Player. I looked over it at her office with her and did not see a way to run videos, only stills. I'll look again. If she can continue to use the program she is already using that would probably be best for her.

I can verify that the free VLC will do what you want.
