OS9 Slideshow Software

I'm building a digital picture frame from an old Bondi-Blue iBook. My original plan of running OS-X and using the screen saver fizzeled. It ran... just really slow! I guess the 32mb of ram isn't enough for OS-X lol.

Anyhow, I knocked the iBook back down to OS9.1. But I now need an application that will play through a folder of images. I know I saw an applicaiton like this here before with the digital picture frame, but with the new hack layout, I can't find the step-by-step instructions which listed the software.

more ram, X and VLC

Drop in a 128MB or larger sodimm and you can use VLC with X. VLC can do what you want, and more.

Edit: ooops, somehow I read you wanted to run through a folder of videos. Doh! Well, if you wanted to run through a folder of videos, VLC is great. For images, I'll second the jpegview suggestion. Also consider Graphic Converter.

Graphic Converter is pretty good as it handles BOTH videos and pictures, so you're set either way Wink

It isn't free though...

I use jpegview all the time to create slideshows. It's a wonderful old simple program. Get it here:

I second...

I second, or support the person that seconded, the motion that you should use Graphic Converter. Not only does Graphic Converter display just about every image format under the Sun, it has a remarkable host of features and options. Basically, I have yet to encounter an image format that I couldn't view with Graphic Converter, nor have I required a feature that Graphic Converter did not offer.

Slide Freebie

This is what I use with a G4 & OS 9.2.2. It's freeware.

Slide Freebie - An easy to use slide show viewer. Drag a folder of your digital camera picture files or other picture files (jpg, gif, 8bps, qtif, tif, png, pntg) and instantly view them.
