    Default Packaging a video for a non-tech person

    i am assembling a bunch of photos for my elderly (94) uncle in the UK. He is absolutely tech non-savvy, so I need to make access as easy as possible.I want include a video that currently sits on a separate DVD. The DVD contains a folder named Video-TS and inside that are the actual video files.

    How can I package this up so that folder is one of several on a DVD (the others will have photos) and all he has to do is double click something to make it go? One thing I have tried is to create a short cut at the top level that points to the .VOB file. That seems to work, but I wondered (a) if that is the best way and (b) if anyone can point me to some good free menuing software that means I can make everything just a single click away.

    All suggestions welcome.
    We are all but temporary files on the great HDD of life.

    Create A DVD with menus and link what ever to the buttons as required.

    There's several programs, used all of these at one stage or another, some may need to convert a DVD (vob Style) to MP4.

    programs: DVD Styler ( sometimes a bit fussy) https://www.dvdstyler.org/en/

    DVD Flick http://www.dvdflick.net/index.php Very good, old style to use, LOTS of options, suggest downloading the Manual to figure it out.

    There are PLENTY more, BUT often they are only trials or leave a watermark even though they say Free.
