About Track Limits in a DVD

A DVD can have a combination of up to 99 tracks, stories, and slideshows. Each track can
contain up to:

• 9 video streams, used as angles or alternate video

• 8 audio streams for different soundtracks

• 32 subtitle streams for alternate text, alternate languages, or buttons over video

• 99 chapter markers used primarily to define points in the track that can be jumped to

• 255 cell markers used for a variety of purposes, such as button highlights and

DVD@CCESS (this includes chapter markers, which are also cell markers)

• 98 stories (assuming there are no other tracks or slideshows), each defining an alternate

track playback by treating each chapter marker as a clip that can be moved or skipped
as needed
