10.4: Play miniDVD/cDVD movies in DVD Player Apps
Tiger only hintNot sure if this worked in earlier versions of DVD Player, but I just burned a miniDVD (UDF-formatted CD/R(W) that contains a VIDEO_TS folder) and it played back perfectly in the Tiger DVD Player.

[robg adds: I haven't tested this one, and I can't do so in 10.3 any more, so I don't know if this is a Tiger-only thing or not...]

This was working all the time, since i remember, the only problem was (or still is, not tested), that the dvd player won't open automatic if the miniDVD is inserted. it needs to be opened with the open VIDEO_TS folder command from the menu.

no, i got it to work just fine: when inserted, Apple DVD Player opened automaticaly, and brought me to the DVD's 'menu'. I noticed that sometimes, however, I would have to press play on the controller to get to the menu to begin with. (ahem , uh, on 10.3.9)

actually, for me it worked just like any other dvd, in panther... i made miniDVDs as a portfolio project, and Apple DVD Player played them as soon as i inserted them... i don't know if that depends on the software used to author the miniDVDs, but in case it's useful, i used MovieGate, a freeware by the guys from Mac et Video
