Folks,
I'm looking for a way around the "need" to clip videos or copy songs
for insertion into a classroom presentation. To avoid copyright
infringement, I would like to encourage our users to identify the specific
tracks or sections of a commercially produced CD or DVD, and then bookmark
them for playback during their presentation. In this case, the users
would
be playing from the original legit CD or DVD rather than from an illegal
copy.

Does anyone know of a reliable media player for classroom computer
use which would allow the bookmarking of specific clips from an audio CD
or
a DVD?
I know there are players which encourage you to copy a file, then it
will insert bookmarks and save the copy in a weird specific format. But
I'm looking for a player which will create a file containing only the
bookmarks. The bookmarks could then be activated during presentation and
would pull the appropriate sections straight from the CD/DVD drive without
departing from the presentation.
Someone has suggested that I can use MS PowerPoint to bookmark CD
tracks or clips therefrom. I'm trying to work this thru, but it's
imperfect on my particular computer.

SHORT CANADIAN COPYRIGHT BACKGROUND: Commercial CDs can be played
in
class without royalties, and our institution has just bought the blanket
licenses for feature films.
