First play conumdrum in DVDA

OK here we go on my annual "I forgot how to do this" question.

Once a year I do a job and they love a first play video that once played goes to the first chapter of the project.
I've done it in the past but like I said, it's a once a year thing and for the love of dogs and man, I can't remember how I did it. I can get the video to open the next chapter but I can't get it to auto play when you play the dvd.

Like I said, I've done it before and it's not that hard to do but I can't remember what I did to make it work.

I'm losing grey matter from the large crevice in my skull trying different things to make it work and no, I have changed edit computers since the last time I did this so I no longer have the old DAR file.
Any help is appreciated.

Never mind. I figured it out. Forgot I posted the solution a year or so ago and finally found it.

Don,
It's pretty obvious the knees are NOT the first to go! :)

With great empathy...

My knees were gone 45 or so years ago, my mind started slipping soon there after. The other parts in between. :-(

Don,

Can you please post the link to your first play solution? I searched your posts but couldn't find it.

Thanks,

David, look in the online help menu for DVDA. The instructions for First Play are spelled out very clearly.

Thanks Mike. It turns out that I've been doing this for a few years with DVDA. I thought it was something.

Wow, sorry I missed posting the link. It was a post in the Vegas sub forum from 2008.
