Summary0002807: DVD wizard loop option for menu is broken

it seems that the loop option is broken in the current stable. When creating an ISO and setting a video as background for the menu, I select the "loop" checkbox but when playing the iso with Xine, the menu does not loop: after playing the menu, it jumps to the first movie.

I also hope that the text of the menu will be visible over the video (already reported for image background in bug 1545) [^]

Thanks !

Kdenlive's DVD wizard is not really reliable. I have rewritten parts of it for the next release (image and color background are now working) but having a movie as menu background is currently not working. I will try to fix it for next release.

Hi kdenlive gurus

In pursuing this bug, I'm hacking a C++ project for the first time: kdenlive :)

Before attempting whats happening I found that loading a dvdproject with a video as a menu background left the KComboBox selected as video but with the color select button visible instead of the KUrlRequester with the video for the menu background.

I found a solution and next is my patch

diff --git a/src/dvdwizardmenu.cpp b/src/dvdwizardmenu.cpp
index b922bf9..9ee1e4f 100644
--- a/src/dvdwizardmenu.cpp
+++ b/src/dvdwizardmenu.cpp
@@ -818,12 +818,15 @@ void DvdWizardMenu::loadXml(QDomElement xml)
     if (xml.hasAttribute("background_color")) {
+ checkBackgroundType(m_view.background_list->currentIndex());
     } else if (xml.hasAttribute("background_image")) {
+ checkBackgroundType(m_view.background_list->currentIndex());
     } else if (xml.hasAttribute("background_video")) {
+ checkBackgroundType(m_view.background_list->currentIndex());

Can someone verify this and apply if ok?


back to hacking :)

Hi everyone, again :)

I found a solution (I think I'm on the right bug)

On src/dvdwizard.cpp:310 we are assuming a default timeout of 30 seconds and that's not enough for the movie menu background to finish. In my test case I just increased it to 300 seconds and I have the DVD.iso done :)

I think we should put a timeout of +/- 10 minutes or remove the timeout completely.

Hope this is helpful...

By the way: kdenlive rocks!!!

Thanks for looking at the code. I fixed both issues you mentionned (in a slightly different way for the first issue). Should work now with latest git.
