Overview of creating DVD Music discs
A DVD Music Disc is a special type of DVD-Video that contains music tracks, arranged in menus and track lists. You can play the disc on a set-top DVD player, or on your computer using a software DVD-Video player such as CinePlayer.
You can add Track List menus to navigate through the DVD Music Disc, select from predefined menu styles, and choose background images, track illustrations, and other Smart Objects which provide information about the tracks on the DVD.
