How To Video: Skip DVD trailers

1:05 /

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.

[ Music ] ^M00:00:09 >> Tom Merritt: Hey I'm Tom Merritt from CNET with a tip on how to skip those previews that start off your DVD, you know what I'm talking about here. Sometimes they put 10 or 12 movie trailers, maybe some commercials, Ads for BluRay, don't forget the FBI warning. It can take forever for you to get through all of that and actually watch your movie and you can skip the trailers but some DVDs even prevent you from doing that, even if you press the menu button. Now come on that's not acceptable. We're not gonna take that anymore. Here's a remote control trick to skip past those annoying ads. All you gotta do once you get to the trailers is press the stop button twice and then play. Stop, stop, play takes you straight into your movie. This trick should work on pretty much any DVD player; hopefully it'll keep you from wasting time watching previews that you don't want to watch. Movie studios don't force us to watch them, give us the choice. I'm Tom Merritt CNET.com.
