pathplayer will not cause burn failure. however pathplayer can cause problems with open of the dvd or how dvdfab reports titles, file sizes and dvd playback. can cause issues with using the navigation options. (but pathplayer must be enabled to use them)
PathPlayer gives DVDFab the ability to copy DVD content only allowed to be played on a real DVD player. In this way, DVDFab will ignore unplayable content which may contain copy protection.
changing the BOV and VOBU scan settings allows for dvdfab to look for Button Over Video and not accidently remove unplayable content.
"scan cells lasting" dvdfab will scan a VOBU which last the set number of seconds or less. so with default 300 secs dvdfab will only scan only cells lasting less than 5 mins.
"scan one VOBU every # VOBU" the first VOBU is scanned, then 30 are missed, then another is scanned, then another 30 are by-passed, until the cell ends, at which time the last VOBU is scanned. '30', which is about 15 seconds of video.
Easter Eggs are hidden features of a dvd which dvdfab may accidentally remove as unplayable content. If you think your disc may have Easter eggs or similar features that use multiple BOVs, in addition to the checkbox you may also want to adjust the PathPlayer sliders (see above) for cell time (longer) and VOBU scanning (skip fewer) to increase the probability of finding them all.
VOBU is determined by the video coding unit called a Group Of Pictures (GOP). A VOBU will contain one or more complete GOP, as needed.
Cells are the next higher logical structure, containing any number of whole VOBUs. Their length and placement is entirely arbitrary and depends on the overall organization of the program (movie). Chapters, multiple angles, titles, and even how the "prev" and "next" buttons on a remote act all dictate the placement of cells.
