The supplied DVD title has two video titles in a single video title set (VTS).
Each video title contains three chapters. Each chapter can be randomly chosen from a
user remote control. The video title set has a root menu, angle menu, and chapter menu.
The root menu allows access to each chapter of the first video title. The chapter menu
allows access to each chapter of the second video title. The angle menu provides an
option to play back the video titles in a continuous fashion, or to return to the
