Interesting DVD Menu item

Hi,
I just saw an interesting item in a yoga DVD we were given. There is a list of exercises that you scroll down, and can select, instead of playing a clip, it selects that clip as an item to play. You can then move along the list and select items, creating your own playlist of exercises. When you are done playing, you hit the play button, and your selections then play back to back. Is there a way to do this type of programming in encore 2.0?

Mike

This is done on a set top player, not a DVDRom, played off the computer? I can think of way of doing it director, but not encore.

Although Encore does write to GPRMs that the DVD player can read later and make a programming choice with, it's limited to the behaviors that Encore supports, such as Return to Last Menu, etc.

Encore doesn't provide a way that the user can write to a GPRM via the method you described, though. Sorry.

GPRM????

You are one up on me Joe, what are those? I'm completely not familiar with the term.

GPRM stands for General PaRaMeter. It's a register that data (a number) can be written to, then read back by the player later.

Thanks Joe,

I guess I have something else to look into if I'm going to keep the title of DVD master in our post-house...

DVD Demystified by Jim Taylor, Mark Johnson and Charles Crawford is an outstanding reference. The third edition even talks some about HD DVD and Blu-Ray.
