From what I understand, GUI authoring tools like Visual Studio can't
create menus that gives sound when you navigate between buttons, at
least not without manually creating lots of fake sub menus. I also get
the impression that this is also not directly supported in DVD
I'm a command line guy, so to help out a friend I have done some
experimenting a bit from the description at
I just can't get it to work correctly, could some kind soul take a
look? I have a make file so, using GNU make, it is just to unpack and
I try to run the menu from the VIDEO_TS directory created using the
Apple DVD player. I don't get sound from first menu (in fact it
doesn't move to the real first menu, it stays on the "place holder"). I
can't navigate at all between the menu items, i.e. can't move between
the menus (each menu item has it own menu).
I have to admit I don't fully understand the relations between the
mpeg file, the select and highlight PNG's etc. I have tried to read up
on this, what really is needed or not etc.
If I can get this to work I will probably write a script that
generates the XML files and make file from a short specification.
The copy and paste method I used now to edit the XML files are
way to error prone.
If this is not the way to create "talking menus", or not portable
enough to work on most/all DVD players, do you know another solution
that would work?
