Thread: divx from hard drive to dvd player menu reqd

    Default divx from hard drive to dvd player menu reqd

    I have a dvd player with a usb to play my dvd movies on the tv, so i attached my external hard drive to the player and watch divx movies works great and i navigate for the dvd's using my remote control for the dvd player the only thing is my dvd player on has a limted file of 7 characters so i cannot read the whole title of the movie on the tv so i need a menu system. I would like to use the cover of the dvd as a button to select the dvd i want to watch.
    The menu i need to make is not for chapters of a movie it is finding a movie to watch. The player has a explorer type file systme with only 7 charatres. What i need is a file system for my movies so i can click on a button idealy a picture of the dvd cover and it will hyperlink to a movie. I believe i need a single frame mpeg that i can add buttons then pick a path to a movie. The player can view jpg mpeg divx. Any ideas would be great.

    I am looking for software that will created any type of menu i can read. I would prefer a button type like of the dvd cover in a thumbnail view so that i can view the thumbnails then press it and it would then play the dvd that it refers to.

    Most authoring software will do this, some better then others. Sony's DVDA, Adobe Encore DVD, Pinnacle Studio ( when its not crashing!!!) It depens on the amout of money you want to spend.

    i have pinnacle 10 i believe all these programs you have to add the movies to the time line. i do not want to do this as i have 50-60 full length movies it would take me days to save to disk. what i want to do is just create a menu without the movies and point the buttons on the menu to files on my hard drive.

    Again, DVDA made by Sony and Encore DVD made by Adobe is "Authoring Software it "WILL" do this. But it must be a DVD complient Stream ie MPEG2. Go google these two programs. Any way you look at it it will be work and take time.
