Suggestion make it a DVD that can also select & play like a normal
commercial DVD connected to a TV.  I found ours would only view on
a computer.

So though I'd also brought one of those car players with 2 screens
((the kind that strap on car seats to keep kids in the back occupied
normally) It wouldnt play.

& the people demoing various Linux & BSD didnt want to sacrifice
their PCs just to play it. (We had originally hoped to play stuff
on an umanned desk between Linux stand & BSD stand).

We could have even piped it from that device into a projector in a
spare lecture theater we had available (Id have been prepared to
risk my player device unattended) - but none of us were about to leave
our laptops unattended in a remote room.
