  1. Does anyone know how I can link to a web site using DVD Lab Pro 2?

    This is the only dvd authoring software I own. I need to make a menu that will have buttons that will link to web pages.

    Thanks upfront.

    Upfront, I do not think that is possible since a dvd menu must link to a property(vts) on a dvd disk.

    Just think about it. You put that disk in a standard player and someone clicks the link. The player will not have a clue of what to do - no browser support. Same goes for a PC-based player.

    The way you do this is to place an additional html file on the disk with the links you need. When the disk is in a PC the PC can play that file and go wherever you want it.

    I was thinking the same.

    I'm reauthoring a DVD which had links. Like you said when it was in the pc it would load the pages. I'll try linking to html files in the next few days.

    There was an authoring tool that could do this, but it also required the installation of the interactual player to handle the links.

    Yep. DVD Studio Pro (Mac) used to have this function, and may still do. Also the old SpruceUp could do it.

    The one I was thinking of was eDVD, which required that you install it's own player on any PC that was to be used (can't recall if it was the interactual player or just something equally crappy)
