The Segment object contains information about one or more video objects.
A segment is analogous to a "track" in Scenarist, but that term is overused and inaccurate.
|Muxman MXP files - Segment Object|
Each segment is a point of synchronization, that is audio and video timing is established at the
beginning of a segment, and can not have any gaps in the audio for resynchronization.
Contained within a segment are lists of video, audio, subpicture, and highlight streams.
The video, audio, and subpicture streams contain lists of files.
The highlight stream contains information for buttons. This is used for both
menus and button-over-video.
Also in the segment is the list of scenes. Scenes are used
for new prohibited user operations and as reference points for cells, programs, and chapters.

Display Mode will be honored if there is no mpeg video (just bmp's) or the mpeg video aspect ratio
is compatible. If Display Mode=4:3 and video is 16:9 then the mode used will be either "P/S and LB" or
"Only Letterbox" depending on the presence of pan/scan data.
Resolution is the preferred resolution, and will be the actual resolution if at least one mpeg file of the
preferred resolution exists, there is no mpeg video, or Force is Yes. If none of
these conditions are met the actual resolution is that of the first listed mpeg file. If files of multiple resolutions are listed only
those matching the actual resolution will be used, no resolution conversion will be performed.
