be several Titles on one disc and each Title can contain
several Chapters. Titles and Chapters are numbered (e.g.

that displays the first shot from each Chapter and allows
you to select a shot and play the disc from that point
forward. DVD discs can be PAL or NTSC. This player can

availability of these features varies among discs. Check the
disc menu or outer case to see if such features (for
example, subtitles, angles) are available on the disc.
