Hi,

I work at a computer retail store. We have a couple of macbooks out on the floor that is constantly playing DVD movies. On PCs like Toshiba and HP it is very easy to loop a dvd movie. The PCs come with their own movie suites that support a function that repeats the movies without any user input. It is a completely different story on the macs however; I have tried using Automator and using the Play DVD and Resume DVD Playback scripts but the movie still gets stuck at the menu screen. Is there any way around that? What I wanna do is to run a script or work flow every morning when I get to work so that the dvd movie would keep on playing without me having to click play every 2 hours or so. Please give me some advice, thank you very much.
