nope. i've been over at Lemon Meringue's place today watching the DVD and what you have to do is go to the option where you can pick each track one at a time from a play list. Then when you pick the track another screen comes up. If there is more than one version of the video, it will have each director's name and you can select either one. ALSO, by some of the director's names there is a little microphone symbol and if you pick that one it plays the video with the sound slightly down and the director comments on the music video...recollections of how they made it, what the band was like, etc. It is SUPER cool. Behind the scenes stories.

yep, DVD-rom files are saved in 2 chunks, video and audio. i cannot seperate them short of using a specialised program like virtual dub or something.
if you want the exe, msg me on AIM: brownheyzues

That does not work for me...when I press 1 it just runs and goes back to the One Menu...I did this like 6 times and no screen saver.

Another question...is it just me or does the software that the dvd forces you to use on the computer really suck...the quality on my computer was really bad.

I was about to give up .. it took me a few times, I dunno then it all of a sudden came up. I think you have to hit it just right. But you cant do anything with it.. lol.. just look at it.

I hate that program, I didn't install it and used WinDVD instead...
I don't think you can get the trabbie one on your computer unless you want to extract the mpeg and find someone who knows how to make screen savers...
or find a program that plays videos for your screen saver. I have one on my other computer...

the screensaver is not really a screensaver, more like a looped video clip. to get it on your PC, you need to rip (record) it from the DVD and manually make a screensaver out of it.
all this=loads of work.

To answer the technical question concerning someone who could not hear proper sound on the DVD:

This DVD comes with so-called LPCM sound, which is high quality (better than Dolby Digital quality actually). Your DVD player probably can't playback that kind of sound. Contact your player's company hotline for help, maybe there is a fix. Ask for LPCM sound playback support. To verify that this is the problem indeed, make sure that you ARE able to hear proper sound when it comes to the directors' comments on the clips since these are made in Dolby Digital and not LPCM. The history mix was also made on LPCM exclusively so that explains it. Also, I have to nore that the Elevation Live in Boston DVD had doulbe sound tracks, both an LPCM track and a Dolby Digital track. So you had a choice of two audio channels, with Dolby Digital being the default choice. So if you have that DVD, it must have worked for you.

Last note: Dolby Digital is also known as AC3 and is the standard sound of all DVD's so there is no DVD player unable to play Dolby Digital. LPCM is sort of rare, I have only seen it on U2 DVD's, it works ok on my computer (I have no DVD standalone player) but I'm not sure how many of the standalone players support this feature.

I have to note that The Fly video of the DVD is not the original version.

I have found one difference so far. It's the opening mouths that appear in some parts of the video (like in the beginning and in after the 2nd chorus). The mouths have been removed in this video! Compare it with the version on the Achtung Baby videos...

Last Night on Earth, HMTMKMKM, and I think Discotheque but I'm not sure... they aren't the same as the ones I have on mpeg too, I don't know if it's because I downloaded random versions or what.
Did you notice the MW video has the changed lyric too?

I'm having a problem with my DVD!

When I put it in on my birthday it worked just fine...but then I had to take it out because we had company.

So I put it in tonight again and it kept skipping and I can't even play through the video for Hands That Built America!!! At one point the DVD player stopped and it said, "disc is dirty." How the frick could the disc be dirty already? It's brand spanking new!



Whew! I'm a little fired up right now...Got a little margarita and eggnog w/rum in me...

Yeah, I noticed this too. I also noticed they cut out the part where Bono licks his finger. Eh. I wonder why they cut it?
