If you use WinDVD it is really easy to run a playlist of music, trailers, whatever. It makes a nice seamless preshow.

I rip the video files in DVD Shrink and put them together in Nero. Nero has lots of great built-in features, nice menus, etc...

If you don't measure it in feet, it's not home theater!

Seem like double work, since all you have to do is add the files and play. You can arrange them in any order you like, add subtract, etc.

If you rip a disk, you're stuck with that order and content.

It's more work if you use a laptop for your program source, but if you use a DVD player, it's the only way to go....

How so? You spend time burning a customized disc for each show with a dvd player. With a Laptop you already have the files and can drop them in any order for each showing without reauthoring.

I did the DVD Shrink and remastered my show, burned it to a dual layer DVD and had one disk with everything with no compression.  It was sweet.  I would consider doing the laptop thing, but....... the laptop would not give me 5.1 output whereas my DVD player with the custom DVD does.  Hey, it is all personal choice anyway....right?

Hiredpower, I think you misunderstood my comment.

If you have a laptop, this method makes perfect sense.

If you don't have a laptop and use an ordinary DVD player, you obviously don't have the software available, so you have to burn a DVD to use on your player.

I use a Coby portable DVD player, so I have to burn pre-show DVDs. If you have a laptop, you're ready to go with WinDVD.

Dano,

  When I get my home PC working and have the time I will update the OTIB thread and show you how to get 5.1 surround from your lappy.

CherryHills,

  Sorry I misunderstood.

Kieth,

I still have to get it over to my 12 channel mixer.  My sound card in my laptop just has a headphone jack which is stereo.  I want to see this!!  If you want to write me on my regular email you can.  DanoL1011@aol.com

Good thread...

Question.... since I'm new to BYT stuff... where are you guys finding all the cool older Pop Corn movie clips, refreshment clips, etc?

Is there a site to download directly?  I would love to piece together a couple cartoons, then a refreshment clip, then the intro to my movie, then the movie, etc... on DVD... I have no laptop to take outside... so I will need to put together a DVD and burn it...

Thanks for help.

Oh, and video games on the Gemmy screen rocks!  Kids love it...

Hey Gametech,

  I purchased some of the DVDs called 'It's Intermission Time'. They have some vintage cartoons on them also.

Here is a thread that will help you locate those:

http://backyardtheater.com/forums/index.php/topic,31.0.html

Is there a site to download directly?

archive.org has some clips in the public domain.

Sounds like you're ready to take it to the next level. It will be worth the effort for your family and friends to enjoy.

I'm not a gamer, but I'm sure it's very cool.
