Issues with Display Conditions
There are several issues with using display conditions that you should be aware of:
• The Last Chapter Played setting is reliable only when assigned to menus: When using the
Last Chapter Played setting for display conditions assigned to a track or story, you get
unreliable playback on some DVD players. The Last Chapter Played setting can be used
reliably with display conditions assigned to menus.
• Display Conditions using the subtitle stream number only work with the subtitle stream set
to View: When you configure a display condition for a track or story that uses the subtitle
stream number option, the display condition works correctly only if the subtitle stream
is set to be viewed. For example, if you configure a menu’s button to use subtitle stream
S1 and a track has a display condition configured for subtitle stream S1, the display
condition only works correctly if you also select the subtitle stream’s View checkbox in
the Button Inspector.
• Some DVD players do not allow parental level in display conditions: Some DVD players
do not process the parental level option correctly when used in a display condition,
allowing content to play that should be disallowed.
DVD players always set SPRM 13 to Not Rated when playing DVDs authored
with DVD Studio Pro.
