O thats just the "wonderwall" projector by a different name. I had one. It should work. It worked best with a dvd player...why can't you just burn "the video" to DVD, and play it through a dvd player?

because on the computer i can put it on endless loop, and i wouldn't have to burn a dvd. all the videos i have are on the computer, so i don't know what to do.

well if you have a mac you can always burn a infinite loop dvd with iDVD. other than that, I don't know any other dvd authorizing software that can do it.

a VGA cable is basically the cable that connects your PC to the moniter....
SO the Projector will become the moniter for you...

Yep, make sure you've got the video output set to go to that "monitor" (which is, in this case, your projector). Sometimes you get lucky and don't have to specifically "turn on" the secondary monitor, but most of the time you do. I know if I ever connect my PJ to my laptop, I always panic for a second when I forget to activate that second video output.

I was able to loop a video using my wifes Vista Laptop.
It had a newer version of windows movie maker, I think.
I am at work right now so I cant check that.
But I was playing around with it and found that option.

Could also be that you need to hit the Function (Fn) key and at the same time hit the F7 key on your computer.

That tells your computer to 'output' the video to the projector.

If you want to also see it still on your computer while it is also playing on the projector, hit the same keys again. Then if you want it to stop playing on the projector. Hit the keys again. Basically it cycles through those choices.
