How to unlimit the background audio time?


jsrx

Question

I added a background audio to my main menu of a DVD.

The source is an audio file of 3':40'' play time.

But when I preview the design, while in the main menu, after the first 5 second of playing that audio, it switch to the begining of that audio source and repeat playing ONLY the first 5 seconds. My impresion is that that it treat it as the default duration of a photo, etc. This is of course unreasonable and unacceptable.

 

It should play until the end of the audio file and then repeat, or cut it shorter when the menu changes.

 

My question is, how can I tell it to continue to play the audio as it should in my above descrion.

I could not find anywhere how do do that. In the User's Guide it says that one can adjust it but like with many other things, it does not say HOW (or this descrioption is hard to find).

 

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

If you are talking about the audio that plays when your menu comes up, 30 seconds is the maximum duration that you will get before it starts looping. That is the way the program is designed whether you or I like it or not. It is the same as most commercial movies you buy or rent.

 

If yours is playing for only 5 seconds, you must have changed it in the settings. Change it back to the default of 30 seconds.

You're probably right Bruce. Sometimes I think that a reply hits the nail right on the head and the problem poster fixes their problem and never comes back to tell how, why or anything. Or even a simple thank you if that was the case. To bad too.

While it would be nice to hear back from the posters regarding the outcome of the suggestion or to convey their appreciation for the help extended on them, it is possible that there are posters who don't visit or probably don't have the luxury to visit the forum as frequently as the rest of us does. :)

True, but this poster did have enough time to come back and read the replies to his/her problem.

I saw another thread (Can't "Add Intro Movie". I see "no entrance" sign over such files!) where he was the same topic starter. Looks like with that attitude of that poster in that thread, my comment about "..not having the same luxury to visit the forum..." just went down the drain. <Sigh> :)

If a poster has a problem and anyones reply solves the problem, then to me it's just a matter of courtesy to get back to the forum not only for the OP that sovled the problem but for others that might have the same problem and benefit from knowing that their problem can be solved too.

 

Luxury ? If they can become a member of the forum and have the time to post a problem, then they ought to have the time to post back. Especially when they get some positive replies. But if one looks at the members and their number of times on the forum, there are a heap of them that have a couple of visits. So maybe you are right malatekid :)

To quote the original poster - his attitude and actions " This is of course unreasonable and unacceptable."

Even during those times when I don't have a problem :) I make a habit of browsing all the EMC 7.5 threads to see what new things I can learn. And that would be many things !!! Anyway, while reading this thread I noted the comments regarding the lack of feedback and thank you after the poster's problem has apparently been solved. I truly, truly, truly don't mean to be sexist but my guess would be the non-thankers would primarily be male. I don't say this to ridicule - only to suggest that men are from Mars and women are from Venus and men tend to be less verbal regarding expression of appreciation and I don't think they "get" that people want to hear the follow up. I think men feel when the problem is solved as far as they are concerned the dialogue is ended. Again, this was not meant as a put down but a possible explanation. I get frustrated too when I read a thread and there is no feedback from the poster. I want to know if the solutions suggested worked. I want to know in case I ever have the same problem. I want closure !! Gee, did anyone guess I am female :huh: Having said all this, I better go back and check my posts and be sure I left FB and TY's.

I personally don't care if the person comes back and thanks us for a suggestion or answer to a question. If someone told me that there was no solution to my dilema, I don't expect another post.

 

However, it would be nice if they told us if the solution we posted worked or not. If it works, others can learn from their experience and if it doesn't, we can suggest something else.
