How DVD Video Works

DVD video is a form of digital video, and much like the way that digital video is stored on a computer hard drive, digital video is stored as data files on the DVD disc. When you insert a DVD disc in a player that's connected to a television, a small computer in the DVD player looks for the DVD video files and displays them on the TV screen.

When you watch or make a DVD, there are two types of video that you can experience: regular video such as a movie (as seen in Figure 18.4), and video that's contained in a motion menu.
