I was looking at the javasscript of one of the examples posted and came across:

Player.playlist.titles["T1"].jump("00:00:00:00", false);

Where can I find a doc that outlines classes and methods. For example what is the second (boolean) parameter for the method jump

Unfortunately the API's are currently only available in the HD DVD Video Specification, Annex Z.

For that particular call, the second boolean argument is to save the resume information. That means that after the jump happens, you can resume to where ever you're coming from. Unfortunately there is only one built-in bookmark to save this way, so it's not very useful. In most cases, you'll end up creating your own framework for saving resume information on a title by title basis.

I think it will only cost you $5,300, but that said, we're all hoping they allow third parties to publish books and documents containing the API's.

Information on obtaining the spec can be found here:

We realized our mistake that the spec was much cheaper than the licensing, and we've ordered some copies.
