Single Play Video Dvd

Question

Hello...

 

Nearly every DVD authoring project I undertake consists of simply burning a standard single-play video DVD with no menu. However, Toast defaults to creating a continuous-loop video DVD. How can I turn that option off so it won't repeat?

 

Am I stupid or blind? Wait...don't answer that...but thank you for any other help you can give me.

I don't believe you can have a single-play video with no menu. What I suggest is creating a menu in which you drop in a solid black background and change the font color to black and the button color to black so what people see when the video is done is a black screen.

And while I'm at it, is a 'disc simulate/preview' option too much to ask for?

The only way to do that is to choose Save as Disc Image. When that is complete control-click on the resulting .toast file in the Finder and choose "Mount It" from the contextual menu. (You also can mount it by choosing that option in the Toast Utilities menu or selecting the .toast file when choosing the Image File setting in the Toast Copy menu). This should launch DVD Player or you can open DVD Player and it will treat the mounted .toast file the same as an inserted DVD. If you like what you see burn it to disc using the Image File setting in the Copy window.

Using third party tool MyDVDEdit, you could alter the behavior of an already authored DVD on some details.

Author the DVD as best as you can in Toast, then save as disc image. Copy the content (VIDEO_TS, AUDIO_TS) of the disc image to a new folder. Give that folder and all the files and folders inside it read/write privileges (so that MyDVDEdit may alter the contents).

Open the VIDEO_TS folder in MyDVDEdit. Change the post command for VTS 1 (or the last one, if there are more than one) from Call yada-yada to Exit. Save.

Burn the altered VIDEO_TS folder to disc, using the VIDEO_TS Folders option in Toast.

If your player respects the Exit command, then the playback will stop after playing once.
