To answer the hardware question about Mediashout, I ran it on an HP Pavilion laptop, with Windows XP. I've got ATI grahics card, AMD Athlon 64 processor, 1.99 Ghz., 1.25 gig of RAM. I didn't load it on the desktop computer at church, since I work on this at home. Now, we run the powerpoints off the computer at church, and we haven't had any glitches so far, except for the video. When we play the video in the powerpoints, we still see the glitch when we start and stop the video, and it does not play smoothly. We have a separate DVD player for DVD's; however, I was trying to incorporate videos into the powerpoint presentations. Trying to time a DVD perfectly with a choir number proved to be impossible; we need the flexibility and manuverability with something like Powerpoint.
