I dont think a DVD changer would work. I think only a single
"tailormade" DVD would run in a loop.
- confirm with all filmmakers that you are allowed to rip the films
from the DVDs and copy them to a new DVD.
- in any case you need disk space. and you need a DVD burner in your PC
- go to, go to "tools" and find the software to rip
the DVDs without region code and copy protection.
(I'm on mac so I have no clue what is the right software for PCs)
- now you need a software that "demuxes" the films into ".m2v" and
audio (might be various formats like ".aiff" or ".wav" or ".ac3")
- now you need a DVD-authoring software. In that you can import the
demuxed files and build a DVD that only contains the films you want.
these authoring softwares are quiet complex, so you might need
someone to explain it or do it for you.
- destroy the DVD after the show is over.
