I am trying to create a vcd with movie clips and a simple menu where I can press 1, 2 or 3 to jump to the clip. Chapters do not matter for the time being.
I have VCDEasy.
But I am having a strange problem. After I burn the cd, on my pc power dvd player when I press any of 1, 2 or 3 the menu disappears for a sec and then reappears and now pressing any button takes me to proper sequence.
My standalone sony's dvd player is showing different behavior. Whichever number I press it takes me to the first sequence.
I have tried these guides but getting same behaior:
What am I doing wrong here?
EDIT: I have attached the XML file which has been created by VCDEasy in the same folder where it created BIN and CUE.

VCDImager does have a GUI --- no need to mess around with the CLI. 8)
In fact, all we have to learn about it is understand the XML-formatting and the PBC
structure of the disk-image --- that really is worth the time and the effort.
Anyway, you might start by dropping the chapter points from the authoring
and check whether that makes some difference (for better, I hope). Another change
that might be interesting is:
[s:fa0f7cfc2a]return ref="Selection-end"[/s:fa0f7cfc2a] <-- drop it or replace with return ref="Selection-000"
Having two distinct values for the same instruction might be confusing the
playback virtual machines of Power DVD and of your $ony set-top.
GNU VCDImager Tools GUI
This is a simple GUI (graphical user interface) for the various tools in the Win32 build of GNU VCDImager 0.7.12 suite of programs (including VCDXGEN, VCDXBUILD, VCDXRIP, VCDXMINFO, VCDDEBUG, VCDIMAGER and CDXA2MPEG).
This programs provides a simple and convenient front-end for those people unfamiliar, uncomfortable or dislike the use of the command console. Being a simple GUI, however, this program is not an XML authoring aid like VCDEasy (http://www.vcdeasy.org) or TSCV.
This program also supports and provides a GUI for lkVCDxBUILD and lkVCDxRIP. The lkVCDImager project is is a fork of VCDImager by Laurens H. Koehoorn, alias 'Betamax'. The current included version is 184.108.40.206.
The program is released as "Free Software" under GPL and is freeware. However, if you find this program useful, please support the project by donating securely via PayPal. You can find details and links on doing so at http://www.michaeltam.com Thank you!
