Burned Blu Ray skips menu, not as same as in simulation

Post by androidphrases »

Hi folks,

I am new to Blu Disc Studio, so this may well prove to be user error.

My finished project is very simple - two videos on a menu screen displaying a jpg. All seems fine in the simulation.

However once burnt onto a Blu Ray using txMuxer and PowerIso, the new Blu Ray isn't recognised as such by Windows, and every player (DVDfab, VLC, WMP) either can't play it, or skips the menu and straight away plays the video but with the menu still showing over the top.

Included is the output.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Andy

Re: Burned Blu Ray skips menu, not as same as in simulation

Post by Alexey Kolesnikov »

Hi Andy,

First of all, BDS does not compile designer background to the output. If you specify a JPEG file as a background of the designer, it will only be visible in the designer.
If you specify a PNG - it will be visible in the simulation too.

If you do not specify a background video for the menu, the background image of the designer will be converted to h264 video (using the x264 encoder) and will be used as a background video in the menu. But this process is not ideal, therefore, we recommend explicitly specify a video in the video property of the menu.

And to get started I recommend first of all try to mux and play the Simple menu example.
Best regards,
Alexey Kolesnikov

Hi,
Thanks for the help. I think I'm getting the hang of it. I'm now using a background movie, however the player thinks it's 50 seconds long, and there's an audio crunch when the background video replays. Is there a way to set this correctly?
Many thanks,
Andy

To extend the duration of the menu playlist change the number of playitems in the "Project properties" -> "Menu" -> "Menu playlist" -> "Additional playitems in menu clip".
If you hear a crunch when the menu video restarts this can be a problem with a seamless playback. I recommend re-encoding an audio making it slightly longer than video and enable "Seamless menu connection" in "Project properties" -> "Menu" -> "Menu playlist".

PS: ideally, the length of the audio should be equal to the length of the video.

Hi,

Thanks for your continued help.

I'm very close now - I followed your instructions, finding that if I put the value of 0 into the 'additional items in play menu' the background movie plays nicely to the correct length and without an audio pop.

However it crreates another problem which I can't solve - the two buttons disappear half way through the first background playout! Never to return!

What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks,
Andy

This is strange. Can you send me a .bdmd project file?

You project plays fine on PowerDVD, VLC and Kodi players. This problem reproduces on DVDFab player only. I think the problem is in the DVDFab player - I heard that it has problems with BD-J titles.
