Burned Dvd Unwanted Repeating Upon Ending

Question

Greetings,

Using Toast Titanium 11.1 with OSX 10.8.2, I have successfully created a DVD with a menu and automatic chapters. The disc plays correctly at the start, however upon ending the file immediately starts again at the beginning. A related issue occurs at the actual ending of the movie file, the movie stops several frames short of the exact ending so that the viewer does not get the true ending of the movie, then the repeat issue occurs. 'Play all items continuously' was checked. When that filter is unchecked, the menu gets placed at the end of the movie after creation. Auto-play disc is unchecked however in the second scenario the movie will immediately start when the disc is inserted in the player. Nothing is making sense, any help would be greatly appreciated. As usual, this is on a deadline of today.

Thanks, Scott

"Play all items continuously" does result in repeat playback from the beginning once the entire disc is played. There probably is a setting in the .IFO that can stop the continuous play at the end of the last title but that requires using MyDVDEdit to modify what Toast has authored.

 

I don't know why some of the video is skipped when the player advances from one title to the next. I also don't know why the menu doesn't appear upon inserting the disc when Auto-play is unchecked. Does this also happen when the DVD is inserted in the Mac? (I'm presuming you have the Mac's DVD Player app at its default to automatically open when a video DVD is inserted).

I have DVD Player (v5500.38.2) which I believe came with the OS. When inserting the created DVD disc in the tray, that disc mounts to the desktop and does not automatically play. I have tried to open that disc from DVD Player unsuccessfully. That disc will play from my home player as described in my earlier email. The only other variable I can think of is that the burner is a Blu-ray / DVD combo burner in my Mac Pro. The file name on the disc is BDMV in addition to a CERTIFICATE folder. Also, this is from a 40 minute single mpeg movie file approximately 7.45GB prior to burning. It was created using Adobe Premiere. Thanks, Scott

I wasn't aware this was a HD video disc. To play that on your Mac you need to use Roxio Video Player (available via the Toast Extras menu) and that bypasses the menu in any case.

 

Since there is only one video on the disc, uncheck continuous play. That should prevent the repeating. The auto play at insertion may be due to a setting in your Blu-ray player or it may be that Toast authors the disc in a way that your player doesn't understand.

 

Forget what I wrote about MyDVDEdit or DVD Player. They only apply to standard video DVDs.

DG, nice MG.

Thanks for your knowledge on this. The Extras > Roxio Video Player will not open the disc or BDMV file either. I will continue to experiment and try other home players as well as trying discs created using the continuous play filter unchecked as you suggested. Frustrating.

Thanks again, Scott

It's an Austin-Healey but looks a little like an MGA. When I've used Roxio Video Player all I've had to do is choose open and select the BDMV folder and all has worked.

 

Something you might do is to first choose Save as Disc Image rather than clicking the burn button when creating a new Blu-ray disc. When the disc image is finished it can be mounted using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window (and a couple other ways). The mounted disc image should play with Roxio Video Player. There is a button at the bottom of the player window where you can select different titles. The menu is one of the titles but it isn't active in any way. It does give you the chance to see how it looks.

 

Make sure you're running Toast 11.1 (1072) and not 11.1 (1067). The latter is installed via Toast's built-in updater.
