How to create an Audio-Only DVD in DVDLab Pro

his guide will take you step-by-step through authoring a DVD which contains 3 complete compact discs. I wrote a guide earlier in 2 parts but have since found what I believe is a better way to do it. With this method there are no movies used for the music although you must have a movie for each VTS as this is part of the DVD Specifications. Each movie can be very small and doesn’t need to have audio on it so they won’t take up much space. The audio files will each be put on a separate menu. This will allow you to also put far more selections on a DVD. Each VTS can have up to 250 menus and a DVD can have up to 99 VTSs. Allowing for a few menus to be used for control issues you can still have an incredible number of titles on a DVD.

How to use PgcEdit’s new Jump to PGC Upon DVD Insert Macro

This method allows you to jump to any menu or title on insertion of your DVD, setting the audio and subtitle streams of your choice and by-passing anything in your way (e.g. annoying FBI warnings, studio promos and Dolby Digital trailers) and having all the DVDs internal registers set exactly as they would be if the commands followed the original path.

How to insert chapter into DVD movie keeping menus

There are quite many cases when you want to have more chapters on the disk than it was in the original DVD. Say, chapters were inserted automatically by dvd recorder at some weird places or DVD was authored in a way that there is a huge chapter and you would like to be able to use your remote to go to some particular scene inside this chapter. Until recently it was a task close to impossible, as it required a very good knowledge of DVD structure and how DVD navigation works. And even then you would have to spend hours editing your disk. Starting with DvdReMake Pro 2.5.1 it is possible to insert programs to a pgc and chapters to titles. Together with implemented earlier "split cell" this allows DRM Pro user to insert a chapter point into movie with just few mouse clicks.

Add a menu to a DVD without re-authoring, using DVD-Lab Pro

This guide is if you've made a movie only DVD (like when re-authoring with DVD Shrink) and would like to add a menu without complete re-authoring. Multiple audio/subtitles. It's also useful if you want to do the muxing with a reliable tool which doesn't support menus or is limited on the menu creation side for your taste and you want to create the menus with DVD-Lab Pro but you don't trust it to create the VTSs because is still Beta. This guide gives you a safe way to add a menu because you won't be touching the movie VOBs so it has few advantages over the tools that support re-authoring by importing the VOBs.

doom9 DVD-lab guide

If you're unhappy with the often feature limited or crippled DVD authoring tools that ship with your DVD burner, and are looking for a cheap solution to author DVDs that contain more than just a movie with chapters (those you can get for free on this very site), you might have heard about DVD-lab. It's part of the sub $100 DVD authoring packages, but considering the pricetag, its featureset is quite amazing.

Maestro is one of the truly professional DVD authoring applications.
