How do I make the disk auto-play after the menu is displayed for certain time?

I used to make DVD's using other software and always was able to have the DVD's auto start if the remote control does not intervene in say 30 seconds.  I couldn't find this option in Encore CS5.  Did I miss something, or could someone tell me how to do it with Encore?

 

Thank you!

    Add some video to the Main Menu.  Set the End Action to a timeline.

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "have the DVD autostart." I assume you mean to have a particular movie play, or given you later response, for the "play all" program (movie/playlist?) to start.

     

    Select the first play menu. In the properties panel, on the motion tab, deselect "hold forever," set the duration to 20 seconds (or whatever), then on the Basic tab, set the end action to the movie/playlist you want to play.

    I've never used that before. Glad to hear it works!
