    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.
    • You may discuss ripping or copying unprotected movies or homemade DVDs.

PLAY MOVIE - Movie starts half way in!

My 'Prematur Ejection' issue was solved by buying an external DVD burner but I have a new problem. I have created a lovely 30 minute movie of a dinner party for a customer that has to be delivered tomorrow.

I am very pleased with the results with one exception.

When the 'PLAY MOVIE' button is pressed it takes you straight to scene 5, so the only way to view the movie from the beginning is to go to hit the Scene Selection button.

I have only a few hours to rectify this and burn again, I have since noticed that it does the same thing when the i-DVD project is opened up and tested but I don't know how to fix it.

I hope somebody out there can help me, many thanks in advance.
