It's a simple enough requirement: imagine a podcast with still images being displayed at particular times and durations. The images would be displayable on a PC or compatible portable device. The images would not "need" to be displayed, just if possible.

I'm wondering if anyone has suggestions regarding codecs, container formats, and tools to do this. If you think any existing "video" codec could do this quite efficiently (the image should not add too significantly to the file size) then please suggest that also.

i didnt do any podcasts, so i dont know, but i imagine it would be the best to write a proper xml which includes image links as well - based on chapters or something...

maybe:

Many thanks to you both! And congrats on the your 1000th post smok3.

I didn't realise that (enhanced) podcasts could do exactly what I am wanting, so the work from here on is pretty straight forward. I'm a Windows bloke so am a little unfamiliar with what is possible on the Macs (although that will be changing shortly as I intend to get my girlfriend the next iBook).
