I work at a video company that regularly produces DVDs on DVD Lab Pro. Lately, we've run into an error that we can't sort out.
After we compile any DVD folder, and before we use ImgBurn to make an ISO, we open the project by right clicking the folder and playing it in VLC. However, some of our projects are not opening with the first play menu. Instead, running the folder in VLC takes us straight into the one movie included in the file, playing it in VOB segments, and there's no option to return to the menu from there.
When we examine the folders we've created, the structure is different. We see our usual VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders, but we also see a "VTS" file, one at the root level with the aforementioned folders and another inside the VIDEO_TS folder. Normally, we don't see these files.
We have a temporary solution which seems to point to a more permanent one, but technically speaking it's the rough equivalent of jiggling the key in the ignition. We go to the Connections window and reset our arrows, the ones following from the default "First Play" and "Title" as well as the ones following from the movie - by sending them to some other submenu and then directing them back to the main menu. This works, albeit sporadically.
We'd like to pin down the real problem so we can avoid it in the future. What could be happening here? (Apologies if I'm missing relevant information.)

VLC is not 100% DVD compliant for DVD playback. Did you try different players also? Try MPC-HC, Windows Media Player .. btw when you debug project in DVDlab, does it behave as it should?
VTS file should not be on the same level as VIDEO_TS folder. Everything should be inside VIDEO_TS for DVD. You do not say full name of that VTS, is it some extra rogue VTS or one that belongs in that VIDEO_TS folder a well?
