    SlySoft introduces "Speedmenus" with the latest AnyDVD release.

    The irritating wait time for a movie to finally start in your home
    cinema will now drastically decrease with SlySoft's latest release of
    AnyDVD. A new feature called "Speedmenu" allows you to instantly replace
    the original Blu-ray menu on the disc while you play the movie or rip it
    to your hard disc.

    As with everything AnyDVD does, AnyDVD creates the Speedmenu "on the
    fly", to mean seamlessly. The disc is remastered within seconds using
    AnyDVD's unique "Magic File Replacement(tm)" technology.

    If enabled, the Speedmenu is instantly available as soon as you
    insert a disc and play it on your PC. If you decide to backup a disc the
    Speedmenu will be on the backup as well.

    This newly created menu allows you direct access to the main movie or
    specific chapters without forcing you to watch trailers or other
    annoying interruptions. This means much shorter load times and faster
    access to the movie!

    If a media player supports Blu-ray disc menus, but not the original
    disc's menu, Speedmenu will ensure you can play the movie even with
    older players not able to handle the latest BD menus.

    With Speedmenu enabled, not only do media players connected to the
    Internet no longer try to "call home" using BD-Live, but you can also
    play 3D discs on 2D players. And, last but not least, Speedmenu lets you
    resume watching a movie even if the original BD-J menu won't let you do it.

    Speedmenu highlights at a glance:
    - Speedy access to the movie
    - Much shorter load times
    - Compatibility with older players
    - Prevents BD-live from calling home
    - Playback of 3D discs on 2D players
    - Auto-resume of BD-Java discs

    Giancarlo Bettini, CEO at SlySoft says:
    "This major release of AnyDVD marks the start of a very active 2012 for
    SlySoft with more major releases and new upcoming products in our queue.
    Although I am not allowed to go into details I can tell you that
    everyone should keep an eye on our website for things to come."

    I got excited when I read this. There seems to be no additional way to get to chapters (on the fly pop-up menu). Do you mean (extra) tracks here?

    See it all, select what you want

    All chapters are plainly visible so there is no hunting around anymore.

    I don't see any chapter options on the speed menu's either. Maybe it needs clarifying

    OK, a title is not really a chapter. Title may be the complete movie or an extra. Chapters are a subset of that.

    So it doesn't give you direct access to chapters, only individual titles which you then have to play and navigate as usual to access the chapters?
