That is the case with most dvd players, but there is a way to get them to play mp3 from a dvd disc. There is a very nifty little program called AudioDVDCreator that will put mp3s on a DVD (about 50 albums worth) and burn it as a normal video DVD, this every player will be able to read it. Works a treat, lets you put album art on there too.

Hi Iko

Your system looks spot on

I remember you posting that you make your own VCD's ..... Are these music VCD's ?

I'm loving the sound of being able to watch and hear a music video in the car. If so can I ask what software you use ??

Thanks

hi Retro

I use the program called Dr Divx 1.6

step by step

1- you can choose any video file (app.5 min)

2-is s elect audio input ( s elect the mp3 file you want)

3-choose output (format and screen size)

4-encode video (I modify settings for Audio Quality 192 kbps more than enough ;))

when the files ready I use nero To make A VCD disks with this files

I like catwalk, I make digital records from Fashion Tv and put the mp3 that I want...If you have your ready music videos you can make your vcds with nero software only

Also yesterday I make my first Audio DVD 4.7gb of Mp3 on a dvd disk with nice silver Anni GTI at the backround image with Audio dvd creator

This units are really nice if you can know how to use them

for any more help just Pm to me m8

Morning Iko

Thanks for the advice and the name of the sofware you use.
I'll have a little look on the torrents sites for it now :)

I'm not getting my screen until December but at least I'll have some practice and disks ready by then.
I'm sure I'll also be able to find a site that I can download music videos from.

Have you tried a music DVD like this one from Play - http://www.play247.com/play247.asp?page=title&r=R2M&title=610649&p=25&g=25&pa=rts

I'll PM you nearer the time for advice.

Take it easy mate

have you got a make, model, specification on this unit? Does it have aux inputs? how do you hook up a sat nav system to it and will it display on the screen?

So many questions eh?

Anyway it looks really good.

hi

Unit not branded but around 300-400 quid

It's got Cam in ,aux in,satnav in (no idea needed parts),parking sensors in,tv Antenna in

It plays DVD -VCD-Mp3-CD-RW formats built in Tv tuner,Radio,touch screen,Remote control

Good value for money ofcourse not as good as 1k units but I'm happy with it

I use TOMTOM loaded mio 168 Cheapest and best option I believe for satnav...

I haven't got an Antenna but I tryed ones with my pc's tv card Antenna Channel5 was ok

If you get the special antenna from the person you get the unit I'm sure They have signal booster but not sure about the results
