The quickest way to go straight to the start of movie on dvd
Does anyone hate waiting for the FBI warning to go away so you can go straight into the movie? This is especially annoying in Paramount and Columbia/ Tristar movies on dvd's.

Here's my quick and easy instructions.
Go to scene selections and select chapter 1. You won't have to look at the FBI warning anymore!!

I don't have a problem with them.
but what really annoys me is when a DVD has commercials that you can't skip through.

The quickest way is just as the Player reads the disc, press stop so that it stops completely, then press Play >.
This usually works fastest (Great way for Simpsons Season 2)

I always hate the HKL DVDs where you can't skip the copyright intro, then then you have the HKL logo which takes forever, and then you have Media Asia straight after which takes even longer, and you can't skip on either of them!!!

for those previews, just press stop button, then menu.  For the fbi, etc, on some players you can just press chapter skip and it will jump through them.  It won't work on all players.

Hey just a question, but do you international guys even get an FBI logo in front of your dvd movie? I'm guessing maybe Interpol instead?

I haven't actually seen many foreign DVD's.

We normally just get generic text  messages describing the distribution license. However certain distributors have a tendancy to force trailers at the beginning, worse still is we sometimes get condescending messages about how piracy is linked to terrorism.

One other thing. In the UK there seems to be a disagreement with certain distributors and online rental companies, it looks like the rental companies are cutting costs and buying the much cheaper retail versions of films. So what do distributors do to sort it? They force it on the buying public with a trailer about reporting rental companies that are doing this. I say they should sort their own problems out.

In relation to FBI warning messages, you can get DVD players and multiregion modifications that automatically skip the FBI screen on American discs.
