Moderators

There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.


The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.


Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

I usually use Verbatim DVD+R or sometimes DVD-R. The ones that are scratch resistant (Very dark blueish surface)

Its all about the player. I picked up a Phillips DVP 5140 at Wallyworld for $49.95 and it will play anything i toss into it. The remote sucks.
I use the memorex dvd+r and can get up to six movies on a data disk. If i want a disk to play in almost any player i use nero and burn in iso at 4X.

First of all, I assume that you are converting your movies to DVD format? There are many programs that will do this, although not all of them produce high quality. Currently I am using WinAVI. I can get better quality by using TMPGenc, but it takes a lot more time and work.

I also have a DVD player that will play DivX (.avi) movies, and was pretty excited about it when I got it! You can watch movies without going to the trouble of converting them...some of the movies, however, aren't very big. Plus, I only have one of these players, and don't want to have to move it if I want to watch a movie on my other TV! I've gone back to converting movies to DVD. I have been extremely interested in reading about what type of media to use...Verbatims are usually suggested, but recently I've been reading a forum thread on afterdawn.com and the following media types are seen as the best: (not necessarily in this order, although Yuden was recommended when I said I was having problems such as you are having)

* Yuden (Taiyo)
* Maxell (Hitachi - make sure they're made in Japan)
* Verbatim

I've read that DVDRW's are not great for burning DVDs to, unless you just want to practice...

Good Luck

Thanks everyone for responding. I just got a new laptop, a Dell XPS, and it has a program called media center that says it can burn to DVD's it also has a program called Roxio, I havent tryed either yet. I take it Sony's aren't the best, and I though the RW's were the only ones that were rewritable. I dont know if the programs I have change the avi. format, or what.

I also use Verbatim dvd's. Did use TDK for a while but got some bad batches & also they didn't play on my brother's player. Now stick to Verbatim + & -. For double-layer I'm now sticking to Verbatim DVD+ DL because DVD studio pro does NOT like dvd- dl disks.

My set top dvd player also plays everything thrown at it. It also supports mpeg4/divX which means I can simply burn a data disk with mpeg 4 files on it & the dvd player treats it a little like an mp3 disk re: menus. But for burning normal dvd video disks, you specifically need to burn it in dvd video UDF format. Otherwise most set top players won't play such disks.

There are some brand & type specific players on the market. Panasonic is one of those. duh! Pay all the extra money for something that only plays panasonic disks ... no thank you. Many of the cheaper brands do better than the "brand" names re: dvd playback. But yes, some of their remote controls of the cheaper brands are not well designed.

In regards to Roxio. The one for mac is very good & is 'the best' general burner program for mac. But I believe for windows it depends whether you have the full version or the 'light' version which will be limited in its abilities. Roxio should be able to convert any mpeg 1, 2, 4, divX, XviD, avi, quicktime mov format at the beginning of the burning process.

I'd recommend burning at minimum speed for dvd R disks. And stay away from the 'el cheapo' disks. Get a decent disk if you want "reliability" for burning & lasting more than a couple of years & play-back on set top players. You can check to see what disks burn better on which dvd burners. There are sites that test burners for reliability. Some do better with some brands. I checked my burner here http://www.cdfreaks.com/reviews/ You can also check to see what dvd disk formats your player supports.

Thanks LOTR, so is using DVD-RW's made by Sony a good idea? Or should I use a different brand, or +RW, +R, -R, or both.

All you can do is see if the sony's work, if they don't try one of the brands that have been recommended...I use RWs simply for the fact that I can re-use them at a later time and if a movie doesn't work out properly on it I can re-write it again...

in general, any 'brand name' DVD will be fine...I tend to buy what's on sale...verbatim, imation, memorex, maxell...haven't had any issues with any of those...the cheapo generics tend to fail in a short amount of time...

I would suggest -R media as statistically speaking most players support that format...

as far as RW...well, with media soooo cheap these days I say why bother?...it takes time to erase a disc so you can re-use it...so I just throw away the occasional failed burn and go on with life...
