How do I get the DVD to repeat it's self without me pressing the DVD player or remote control?

In the DVD, there are a bunch of PowerPoint presentations and i would like to view it over and over again without me pressing the DVD player or Remote Control

Thankyou

Many DVD players have a "repeat" function (usually used with CD playback but it normally works with DVDs as well). Or, some have an A/B feature that can be used to repeat a certain time period over and over again. So, best I can suggest is, check the manual of whatever DVD player you have.

I don't think i made myself clear, i need to repeat the film alutomatically without aultering the DVD Player. For example, I was watching a movie and i need the movie to alutomatically restart when it gets to the end. What program do i need to use to what softeware do i need to use in order for me to make that happen?

I'm confused. Software? Are you talking about playing it on a computer or on a stand-alone DVD player? Are you planning to create your own DVD or play a commercial DVD?

One of my DVD players allows you to choose to repeat either a chapter or a title. However, I have found that the best way to repeat an entire DVD is to use the A-B Repeat function. I just choose the spot at which I wish the selection to start and select that spot as 'A', then FFW to the point where I want it to end and select that spot as 'B'. Then the selection, whatever length I've chosen, repeats over and over until I shut it off.

Or, if you are asking how to author a DVD that will simply play over and over all by itself this can be done as well.

I do not know what authoring software you are using so I have no clue what command to use, but a DVD will return to its originating menu, by default, whenever it finishes. You can edit this using your menuing software to make it go back to the beginning of the video if you wish.

Also, I believe you could author your DVD to contain only the video (with no menus) and I think this will make the video automatically repeat.

Yeah, the better authoring programs will basically let you do almost anything you like.

If I remember correctly, I have used both Nero 6, (I haven't upgraded to version 7 yet.), and TSUNAMI-MPEG DVD Author PRO version 2.1.5.77 to create a DVD like you want. I often have to create DVD's for my aging mother. So I create a DVD with No Menus and Auto Plays.. When its done playing it just starts over again. Don't quote me, but I think there in one or both of these programs is a Play All function checkbox when you select the No Menu option. If not, you just have to create one long dvd 'movie' instead of parts.

Nero is only like $99 USD. TSUNAMI-MPEG DVD Author PRO can be downloaded for $90 USD.

For DVD, or audio/video arthoring questions, http://www.doom9.org is the best place to go. They have both a forum and an IRC live chat room.
