DVD skip programming problem

Recommended Posts


I'm using wmp and trying to get the dvd chapters to display and skip through. I've figured out how to skip through chapters, but the way I have it set up is more complicated than it needs to be and wont skip sequentially to the next chapter regardless of what chapter I'm on. Basically, if I start at chapter 1 I can skip all the way through sequentially, and go backwards. But if I watch from chapter 1-5 and then hit skip, I'll end up skipping to chapter 2. Also, the way I acquire the chapters and count isn't the proper way, so I'd like to get the "proper" coding for that. This is how I get the chapter count because I can't find it anywhere on the net and msdn doesn't really help in this: "$oPlayer1.URL = "wmpdvd://G/1/1"" allows me to play a dvd. The last number indicates the chapter. I do a "Do Until" to cycle through with a variable as the last number, and when there is an error, it would mean the max count has been reached. And from that I have the total chapter count and I put a "1" in a variable to skip through. Basically a bunch of unneccessary complications to do something that should be simple.

So can someone show me a simple way to 1/ get the chapter count of a DVD, 2/ skip through the chapters properly no matter where I am in the dvd.
