Wizd has been tested successfully on Windows 98 through XP.
If you want to use the Windows configuration tool (wizdXP), you need .NET Framework 2.0 installed :


To install wizd, unzip the files to your hard drive, then edit the wizd.conf file to change the "alias" lines to point to your desired video, photo, and music files.

If you are upgrading from version 0_12h_pvb_12 or earlier, then either use the included wizd.conf file as a starting point, or copy the mime type mappings from the include wizd.conf file to your configuration files. This is necessary because the mime type mappings must now be defined in the wizd.conf file.

You could also use the all-in-one package (easy installation and setup wizard).

Source code

The source code is available from the SourceForge wizd project CVS archive.  For details on how to access this archive, see the CVS instructions page.

If you want to compile wizd yourself using cygwin, then you will need the libdvdread library, which can be downloaded from ftp://ftp.videolan.org/pub/videolan/contrib/libdvdread-20041028.tar.bz2 You will need to patch this to get the byte-swapping functions included. You can simply edit the bswap.h file to fix this, or apply this patch: libdvdread-20041028-pvb.diff.zip.
