Hi, I'm making a tribute DVD for a friend of a late friend who's ashes were scattered on a beach. He gave a 6 minute speech for the film and I don't have enough photos from his family to cover six minutes so I am thinking of having the dialogue as the DVD menu page audio.

Will most DVD players allow the duration of the audio to play or are they likely to automatically play after a couple of minutes if 'ignored' so to speak.

Thanks.

Well it looks like the most current iDVD can loop the menu for over 6 minutes. I just dragged a 6min 19sec song into the background. Cool.

I'd create a disc image and play it in DVD Player to see if you get the result you expect. This may be player dependent, but I'd guess that the player will play the whole loop and start over as expected. What you might be concerned about is a player will go into a sleep mode say at the 5 minute mark when it sees that no action has been taken. DVD Player may not show that result while a real one might. Test with a movie by just leaving the menu up and not touching any controls or the computer.

Please let us know the result. I for one am curious.

Will do... I am pretty confident i-DVD will allow a 6 min loop but will check anyway. The player is the issue here and I guess there's no way of finding out for sure as each one is different.

Perhaps the player has a menu option that allows turning off any automatic sleep mode.
