The function was successful.

<> S_OK

An error occurred. Refer to the Error Codes or the HRESULT error codes in the DirectShow documentation.


It is recommended that you do not enable the menu loop if you create the menu background from a still image. If the background is a still image, there is no reason to loop, since the image never changes.

It is also not recommended to use menu loop if the background contains a very short video. Some DVD drives take some time to restart playing the background and that can cause undesired effects. If you still want to use menu loop with a short video clip, you might obtain better results to concatenate the clip several times and then use this longer clip as a menu. Example: you want to use a 1 sec clip as the menu in a continuous loop. You can concatenate the clip 8 times, create a 8-sec video clip containing your original clip playing 8 times. You can now use this 8-sec clip as background and enable the menu loop.
