28. Forward Play (Endless Loop)


By default, when you re-author with DVD Shrink, the DVD Stops at the end of your last Title's last chapter.




Some people prefer instead that it jumps back to Title 1's first chapter and keeping on playing.  I refer to this as an endless loop.



It's easy to do this.  The only PGC we will edit is your last Title's PGC 1.


a. Highlight and select the  three hex values below with your mouse cursor.


{71 00 00 01 00 00 00 00}

{71 00 00 00 00 00 00 00}

{30 08 00 00 01 00 00 00}


b. Ctrl+C to copy it your clipboard. 

c. Now, go to your Post command #1 and highlighted it with single left click.



d. Ctrl+V to paste.



At this point, if you don't do anything, it will loop around to Title 1 by itself.

29. Enabling Next Chapter Button to Skip from Last Title to First Title 


To enable your Next Chapter button so that you can skip from your last Title's end chapter  to your first Title's first chapter, then you need to edit your last Title's Next PGCN link value.


a. Double-click on your last Title in your PGC Selection list to bring up your PGC Editor.




b.  In your Next PGCN link field, change that value to 1.  We want it that way so pressing your Next Chapter button, while you are in the last chapter, to  jump to the Post Commands.  So, click in the field and type in 1.


                                                     Before                                             After



Click to set and exit PGC Editor.



There you go! Now you can watch it loop around to your heart's content.
