Grouping formats and features according to Wikipedia:

DVD-Video (standard formats)
DVD-Video/Audio (standard formats)

DVD player devices/Extra features (selling points)
Additional popular formats support

>>     Many/most people know what "MP3 music" is,  but don't know what
>>     MPEG-1 Audio Layer III
>> I agree, that Layer II or Layer III rather than MP2 and MP3 is 
>> unknown these days, if you look at  the last previous email for HDV

>>>     IMO it would be more visible and understandable if the default
>>>     MPEG Audio file name had been
>>>     dvd.mp2 for DVD video rendering.
>> See above, it highlights the extension to draw your eye to change it.
>>>     Another suggestion is to differ between application format like
>>>     DVD-Video and BD-Video vs Data Disks (for MP3)
>>>     and differ between applications mandatory formats on optional
>>>     formats that may or may not work.
>>     I don't know why, but this way to render DVD with CinGG, creates

>> Yes, you will have to edit dvd.sh to change ac3 extension to mp3
