    Hi all,

    I searched, but couldn't find this particular issue discussed earlier.

    In iDVD 7, I'm trying to create a looping DVD that auto plays upon insertion, and bumping up against an odd problem. My movie loops just fine in the preview, but not on the finished disc. I have selected Loop from the settings menu and I also made sure the loop option was checked in the Advanced menu, so I'm at a loss. Has anybody else experienced the same? How'd you solve the problemo?

    Thankya in advance.

    Problemo solved

    Well, looks like I've figured it out. Posting the solution, just in case some future poor schmuck runs into the same roadblock.

    In the map screen I set the movie to loop, and then dragged it to the autoplay square. Unfortunately, when you do that, it doesn't bring the loop setting along for the ride. (WTF, iDVD? Seriously?) You have to highlight the autoplay version and set it to loop, as well.

    May dog have mercy on our souls.
