I have lots of photos and want to play them (with captions ) like a slideshow on giant TV screen in a loop. But my issue is that when the slide show gets to the end, it doesn’t loop and I don’t see the option there so I need to look for another solution.

This tutorial is about how to create a slideshow DVD with photos and videos using DVD Photo Slideshow, then play your pictures and videos on TV in a loop with a DVD player.

You can  use it to make a looping slideshow DVD with background music, theme, text, DVD menu and more for playing on TV or DVD player.
