Watch this menu on YouTube.

todisc will highlight any video you like in the DVD's main menu when you add -showcase VIDEO. There are a few other options that allow you to tweak how the showcase thumbnail appears; this screenshot illustrates -showcase-seek 0 so that the background audio syncs with the video. Full explanation.

Generating command:

$ todisc \
  -menu-title "A Few Great YouTube Videos" \
  -menu-font SudburyBasin3D \
  -menu-fontsize 31 \
  -files \
      amateur.mpg \
      caliendo.mpg \
      monkey.mpg \
      poppin.mpg \
  -titles \
      "Amateur" \
      "Frank\nCaliendo" \
      "Code\nMonkey" \
      "Korean\nBreakers" \
  -submenu-titles \
      "Amateur by Lasse Gjertsen" \
      "Frank Caliendo on Letterman" \
      "Code Monkey music video" \
      "Poppin in the streets of Korea" \
  -title-color '#0010c3' \
  -stroke-color '#90b3ff' \
  -thumb-font SudburyBasin3D \
  -thumb-fontsize 24 \
  -thumb-text-color '#0010c3' \
  -bgaudio poppin.wav \
  -showcase poppin.mpg \
  -showcase-seek 0 \
  -ani-submenus \
  -submenu-title-color '#0010c3' \
  -submenu-stroke-color '#90b3ff' \
  -submenu-audio batida-urbana.mp3 \
  -out GreatYouTubeVideos

In particular, these options control this specific (main menu) screenshot:

  -menu-title "A Few Great YouTube Videos" \
  -menu-font SudburyBasin3D \
  -menu-fontsize 31 \
  -files \
      amateur.mpg \
      caliendo.mpg \
      monkey.mpg \
      poppin.mpg \
  -titles \
      "Amateur" \
      "Frank\nCaliendo" \
      "Code\nMonkey" \
      "Korean\nBreakers" \
  -title-color '#0010c3' \
  -stroke-color '#90b3ff' \
  -thumb-font SudburyBasin3D \
  -thumb-fontsize 24 \
  -thumb-text-color '#0010c3' \
  -bgaudio poppin.wav \
  -showcase poppin.mpg \
  -showcase-seek 0

This (admittedly long) command also includes making animated chapter submenus, each with the same background audio.
