Videos online can either start and end when a user clicks a button or they can continuously play and loop. Use Adobe Encore to create and edit loops in your DVD. It is useful to loop videos so that you do not have to manually press play during a presentation, concert, or party. Encore uses a timeline feature to edit video beginning and end points.
