I have a little bit of a strange problem with Adobe Encore.
I want to create a home DVD with menu that is playable in both DVD Player and pc with windows media player (this is most used in my country).
I did the project with this settings:
DVD - Pal
Transcode MPEG 2
and build it as an DVD Image with All Regions selected.
I mout that image in some image mouter and it opens up the dvd in Power DVD 11 (which is the default DVD player in my PC)...everything works fine in Power DVD.
But i try to open it in Windows Media Player and i get this error:
Windows Media Player cannot play the DVD because the disc prohibits playback in your region of the world.
You must obtain a disc that is intended for your geographic region.
I tried then to change the settings ... i changed it form PAL (i am in Europe) to NTSC ...same thing: plays in Power DVD, get the error in Windows Media Player.
The strangest thing is that i have an older project (made with project default settings), i build the disc image, mout in in Magic Disk and i am able to play it in WMP with no errors.
It drives me mad not knowing what did i do wrong....
By the way: i used in timeline mp4 videos, then wmv, mpg and the result is the same...the DVD won`t play in Windows media player...
...and my OS is Windows 7 64 bits, Encore version CS 5
I want this dvd to be playable in WMP because i intent to give the DVD to many of my friends, and i don`t want to tell each one of them to buy Power DVD or other dvd player.
