Skip annoying DVD trailers and commercials

Some DVDs won't let you skip through all those previews and ads. Stop wasting time and get to the good stuff with this handy remote trick.

You know how it goes--before your movie, there are 10 or 12 previews, commercials, ads for Blu-ray, and FBI warnings that can take forever to get through. And some DVDs even prevent you from skipping the previews, even if you press the Menu button.

Here's a remote-control trick to skip past those annoying ads: simply press the Stop button twice, and then Play. So, Stop, Stop, Play.

This trick should work on any DVD player, and hopefully it will keep you from wasting your time watching previews you don't wish to watch.
