Hello - I have a problem playing DVDs in SSP.  I bought and downloaded Intervideo Xpack (WinDVD Player SE Version) and I can play DVDs with windows media player and InterVideo, so I know I have an encoder/codec installed.  When I go to select a DVD clip, I get to the "Import DVD Title" window, but after clicking "Open DVD", it's either sluggish or SSP locks up completely and I have to hard close it. 

When I installed Xpack, the install program told me there are other encoders installed and that I should remove them, I skipped by this.  Does anyone know how to check for this and then remove them?  This may be the problem, but I don't know.

I also tried uninstalling Xpack and downloaded PowerDVD 7, but I had to use the trial version as you can't buy version 7 anymore (they are on v.9 now).  Also, with the trial version installed SSP stated there was not a player loaded.  I did not buy the new PowerDVD yet and try it.

We just got this computer about 6 months ago and it came with Vista, but we reinstalled XP on it.  I am willing to completely wipe the computer and start over if necessary.

Any suggestions?

Neither of these two DVD software are supported by SSP. PowerDVD 7 requires the full version. Most people have used the WinDVD 4 from places like EBAY. You might also try EBAY for PowerDVD 7. I bought ULEAD Studio 11.5 to be able to get the included WinDVD 8 on my workstation PC, but I haven't tried importing DVD in SSP. This machine is lacking the horsepower to use advanced SSP features.

FYI:  We had the same issue of DVD's not being recognized by the importer.  Installed WinDVD 8 on our Windows 10 system using SSP 8.5 and all works fine.

I think most of us have stopped playing DVD's and gone the route of figuring a way to
get the video onto the computer hard drive. It is much easier and safer to play from there.
We don't even have a DVD player in the projection booth anymore.

RE: Countdown Timer in Slide Show Question by iamgap in Version 8.5

Yes, you can still create a timer in 8.5.
Go to the Video tab under Media Files
Click the Create or Acquire From... icon
Select Timer Creator near the bottom of the list.

You can then add that timer as a video in your slide show.

RE: Preview display by akins in Version 8.5

I haven't noticed any problem in showing any song or blank slide on the stage monitor segmented 2/3 and 1/3. Blanks show blank in both
and song text or titles will show in both and they are correct as to projected or previewed. All my songs begin with a blank followed by
a title slide and all songs end with a blank. I'm using 8.5.

Thanks, Dick! I did read your thread and tried your fixes, but with no luck. I do appreciate the help, though.

RE: Importing PPT in slide show by George in Version 8.5

Hi Kim.

This is not an issue that we are familiar with but you can try the Preview build of 9 to see if that resolves the issues.  If not,  please contact support to report the detailed behavior in 8.5.

Thanks

RE: Shadow Disappears by gwhaverdink in Version 8.5

We have had this happen periodically on different computers.
I have found that switching to a different SSP Program and back again will cause the shadows to return.
Closing and re-opening SSP also works - but takes longer

RE: Buggy on a new speedy system by goodonline in Version 8.5

I spoke with Support at SongShow Plus. The issues I am having are known issues and they are working on them.
It sounds like they are putting more effort into getting version 9 out than fixing the issues with v 8.5 and windows 10. The support tech said that all of these issues have been fixed in v9

I have a new system coming in this next week with Windows 10 that will be the main media system for the church.
Any suggestions on how to work this out? For the near term I am thinking of loading windows 7 so SSP 8.5 will function properly. I drag my feet in doing this because of one software program that is not being actively updated.
I may need to look into other software.....
Any advice out there?
