Here is what I did.. I thought it sounded too simple, and it didn't work as I thought.
I created my own VIDEO_TS.VOB that had a 5 second intro. I added it to my list of files as stated above. Burned my movie. The movie starts, but I see no intro. However I did test the intro VOB and it works, so again I am missing something.
When I use smartripper, should I also rip the disks VIDEO_TS.VOB and then simple replace with my own? When I rip, I am not currently ripping that file, just the movie like stated above.
Or, should I rip like I have been, add my VIDEO_TS.VOB, and then use IFOEDIT first and then DVD2ONE for final compression to burn?
I have been playing with IFOEdit and trying to understand exactly how it works. See a little complicated at first glance because I don't know exactly what to change yet.
I feel like I am almost there. Any further help would be great.
Many thanks again!
