Unable To Fully Play Dvd Using Cineplayer

Question

Hello. I can't seem to be able to play a DVD using Cine Player that was created using Roxio 2010. It plays in a DVD player with no problems. I've often had problems with the intro scene before you get to chapters. I am unable to continue playing. It stays at the intro scene and no way to move it forward. Neither VLC nor Media player would work ether. PowerDVD had no problems playing it; all you do is click play again and you are into your chapters. PowerDVD acts like a regular DVD player. All the mentioned players just either stops or pauses it; but both of the versions of PowerDVD I have (5 & 6) have compatibility issues with Windows 7 64 bit. They work for playing DVD's with no problem. I've always liked those versions and would play Roxio created DVD's where others won't. Maybe the solution is not have the intro scene since it's been a source of problems over the years. Sometimes the intro scene actually confuses people and they don't know what to do. I always have to tell them to hit play twice. But there must be something I am missing hear. CinePlayer should be able to play the DVD's created by Roxio. thanks

Cineplayer plays DVDs created by C2010 just fine.

After playing the Intro (if you have one, many of us never bother with it), play automatically switches to the main Menu page. This menu shows show the movies on the DVD and these are called Titles not chapters. A chapter is the division of a Title into scenes or other user-defined divisions. You can only get to the chapters menu if you have created chapters for a title and you have clicked on a Title on the main menu page.

I'm not sure why I am having problems with CinePlayer plus others, where PowerDVD does not have any issues going from the intro to the main menu page by just clicking play twice. Clicking on play twice does not take me to main menu page using CinePlayer. I am thinking of just skipping the intro since it confuses people anyway. How do you create a DVD where it goes directly to just a title page and skips the intro?

I don't think you have told us how you created your DVD but the default using myDVD (Create DVDs on the C2010 Start page) is to create a DVD without an Intro Movie. You have to deliberately selection the option to add an Intro movie to have one in your project.

 

So perhaps if you tell us how you created the DVD, step-by-step and what program from C2010 you used, we can offer some help.

I haven't done anything elaborate. I don't do this often and only aiming for simplicity but for each project I try to improve it and make it easy to play. I basically just created my project in VideoWave. I placed various markers to differentiate from various events. Then from VideoWave I went to MyDVD. I went to edit to right click on each marker I created. I still don't get the idea of Chapters versus title terminology. Consequently, I ended up with an intro page following a several title pages of various events I marked off which I keep thinking are chapters. I know how to create a project without anything but I would like to just eliminate the confusing intro page but maintain the various title pages. I have 2 title pages with several chapters on each page that you see as icons. The only thing I noticed was that I deleted the "production" name, so that the intro page does not have this "production" name viewable. I did notice that you can click on that to go the subsequent title pages; otherwise you are left hanging; except PowerDVD allows you to just click twice to go from the intro to the title pages by just clicking twice. No other player seems to be able to do this, except standalone DVD players.

I am sorry but I am confused by what you are describing. For example in your initial post you mentioned "intro scenes" which I assumed meant that you had created a Intro movie which would play when the DVD is inserted and from that go directly to the main menu page. This Intro movie is only added from the menu bar by selecting Movie/Add Intro Movie. Now you are talking about "an intro page following a several title pages of various events". I have no idea what that means.

 

To be sure we are using some of the same terminology please read this. I recommend that you also start with a much simpler project without using chapters until you become familiar with some of the features and options and terminology.

I am just doing the most basic thing that is created by selecting the default setting of DVD. It creates an introduction page (New Project) followed by a chapter menu page. The chapter page was created by using the markers to indicate different scenes from different days. From your link, I see an introduction page which is the first thing you see when you insert the DVD following by a chapter menu page that has different scenes. From your link the introduction page says "New Project with Movie 1, 2, 3 4" followed by chapters with chapter menus going from 1 to 6. I was wondering if you can just do away with the Introduction (New Project) and go directly to the Chapter menus when you insert the DVD. When you are just doing something simple, the Introduction (New Project Page) is just a step that is really unnecessary from my point of view, since I am doing something very basic. I know how to completely eliminate both and just have the DVD start directly with your first scene but I do like the Chapter Menus.

The confusion is because of you self-made terminolgy of some terms. What you are calling "introduction page" is called the main menu (or Title) page. If you want to have a chapter menu then you have to have a Title menu page. There is no way around this. Every commercial DVD has a Title menu page, it is the vary basis of DVDs.

Thank you for correcting my terminology. I have never created anything using the Movie 1, 2 3 etc type of main page. Everything I have done is one movie with chapters menus. I just want to keep it as simple as possible. I just do simple home movies of my family. I do this probably only once a year and I'm lucky if I can remember anything. I try to keep notes. I don't know why some people get confused by this main menu title page. For some reason, they don't know what to do when they see it. They always ask me what do I do. I wonder if I should just name the default name of "Production" Chapter Menus. This is especially true on a computer using anything but PowerDVD. Only PowerDVD will access the following chapter menu page by clicking play twice as a standalone DVD player does. The only way I can access Chapter menus with CinePlayer or even VLC is by clicking the "production" name with your mouse on the main menu title page. One mistake I did do was to not name the production leaving nothing on the main title page except the name of DVD; consequently there was no way to access chapter menus from the main menu, except with PowerDVD. Unless there is something I am missing. I don't know if this makes any sense to anyone. It's an issue I've always had going back to Roxio 7. It's the reason I have always used PowerDVD but not everyone has PowerDVD. I do realize it's just the way it is. I always wonder why?

Whether you have one movie on the main menu page or more movies is really immaterial. I don't know why people should get confused by the main menu title page, after all every commercial DVD has this type of structure. You can of course rename the name "Production" to anything you want such as perhaps "Select Scenes" which would take you to the chapter menu page. Of course you have to click this Title to get to the chapter menu. Every player works that way, it is the standard way to navigate on a DVD. There is no need to double-click anything. I have never used PowerDVD but I am sure it works the same as VLC or CinePlayer or WMP when it comes to navigating. This method of menu navigating has always been this way even back with EMC 7.
