Wow....a lot of questions. Let's see if I can tackle some of them.
"The manual of the DVD player says that it can play discs bearing "DVD Video" logos." Yeah...that's assuming that the disc that you are using is a DVD...not just any ole disc with a DVD logo on it. But I guess you knew that already.
Can Director MX be used to generate the movies or presentation content in "DVD-Video" playable format. No.
Lets assume... Don't ever assume!! Director can do all this stuff: What kind of "DVD writer - recorder - or burner" is needed to burn this and make a DVD that can be played in our DVD player. ?? Well, like I said - don't ever assume anything. Unless I am mistaken, Director is not going to produce the files you need to make a DVD. But even if it did---you need a DVD burner. Any ole off the shelf DVD burner is fine. But you have to make sure the DVD player you are playing it on is compatible (see next question/answer).
I am all confused in jargon of DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW etc etc. and I have no idea about it. DVDs (just like recordable CDs) come in a could of flavors. Their are two main branches...and those are +R and -R.
Along with this, under each branch - you can have a Record "once" disc....that would be the DVDR +R (or -R if you choose)....and then you have the rerecordable DVDRW (+or- R).
What is the difference between + or - R? Well, depending on the burner you purchase, you will either be able to burn to a +r disc or a -R disc. There are DVD burners on the market that will handle both formats....but I, personally have stuck with +R. Go to [url]www.dvdrhelp.com[/url] to find out more info on the different specs.
Can anyone suggest the necessary hardware for this kind of kiosk ? or any alternate softwares etc etc. Try using the DVD software that comes with the burner you purchase.
any help is highly desireable.
