I'm getting more and more annoyed with the crazy number of trailers and commercials on some DVDs and Blu-ray discs that you can't skip, so I really appreciate the Lifehacker story that compiled several tips on how to get right to the movie.
The always-helpful Amit Agarwal from Digital Inspiration rounds up several methods for skipping the trailers, warnings, and other crap on a DVD so you can get straight to the movie you're trying to watch. The first tip, from CNET author Tom Merritt, is the easiest. Just press Stop, Stop, then Play on many DVDs to skip right to the movie. This method won't always work, so if it doesn't, don't give up hope! If twice doesn't work, Salon.com's Richard Rider says pressing Stop three times, followed by Play, will do the trick.
