a slight variation, which seems to REQUIRE the use of dvdauthor
Authored by: baronworm on Nov 15, '06 01:38:41PM
I found this hint as I was trying to make a tiny change to an existing home-made DVD:

The ORIGINAL dvd was an ultra-simple home movie: one title, one movie.
The NEW dvd needed to be the same, but as a "kiosk" disk where the movie would autoplay and loop.
I tried to use this hint's instructions, but my experience was that the addition of the loop behavior meant that just replacing the three VTS_ files won't work so well.

So instead I went the dvdauthor route, and once I got 'fink install dvdauthor' to work, it was a piece of cake to just pull off the VTS_01_0.VOB file from the original DVD and then tell dvdauthor to make a new DVD with that VOB as the sole, looping, movie.

For others who are looking at dvdauthor, I recommend this excellent page full of xml file syntax examples:
