Need some Encore guru assistance if possible please.
I have an h.264 file I've imported into Encore. After creating a new timeline, here's what I do every time:
1) Set as first play
2) Set title button to Stop
3) Set End Action to return to video file
4) Set Menu Remote to Return to Last Menu (even though there is no menu)
The preview appears fine, so I burn the dvd. When I insert the dvd into a dvd player, the disc will not play. I've tried multiple dvd players. I'm using NTSC (I'm in the US). I have 7 of these dvd's I need to burn, all with different video files, and I need each one to atuo-play and then loop continuously. At this point I can't even get one to work correctly. I'm using CS5.
Any advice or help is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Figured it out finally, just set all commands to return to the timeline at the end of play. First play, override, title button, timeline...I set everything to return to the timeline and that sucker loops like a champion now. Didn't know I had to do all of them, but after trial and error the issue was solved.
If anyone has this problem, do what I did, overkill every command and pickwick everything return to Chapter 1.
Never, ever use an over-ride until you understand them.
In all honesty you will most likely never need to use them at all, but until you do know it is best to keep well away from them.
They essentially over-ride the default behaviour you have set for that track.
The kind of navigation you will need here has no need of anything more than a simple "Play chapter 1" to make it loop endlessly.
The trouble with the DVD specs is that it is possible to do this in a few different ways - jumping to a chapter, jumping to a timeline, and setting over-rides can cause the player to get into an endless loop, or simply stopping.
Title remote will trigger a warning, and should be set even though in your case it is not relevant.

All that you need to do is set the End Action back to your Timeline. That will create your "loop." Do not set it to link to the Video Asset, but the Timeline, on which it appears.
I will give a +1 for Neil's advice to NOT use Overrides.
