Back from vacarion !

I guess you 2 are talking of different things. DigitalRise, you have to 
be aware that a single MKV file can contain very powerful Metadata about 
its content already, so there is really no need to have a separate XML 
file to describe the content on it, unless you are planning to have 
several different file types ( as Steve said, MKV, MPEG, AVI, MP4, etc. 
) on a single disc, and mixed. If you have only MKV files on the DVD, 
simply parsing the file will give you all the infos you need already.
