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.

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.

This might give some clues Burning using Nero (click on link) although that refers to VCD, it's the same principle. For DVD, you need to choose video dvd output. Roxio Easy CD/DVD creator or Nero 6 & 7 will do the job for you very easily.

Default same but x-vid

Using Roxio 8 Media creator. I get a file claiming to be a IFO.
This will not play on any DVD player though. Is it a finalizing problem?
I can play them on REAL, Nero, Windows media some.

For DVD it needs to be UDF format. Whilst it is possible to burn dvd's as data disks & they'll play in 'some' players, the official dvd format is UDF.

Are you sure about the IFO. Sounds to me like the info file on a dvd that has all the markers, start points, etc. to show the player where to find anything on the dvd disk.

DVD disks should have at least 2 folders; AUDIO_TS (which is empty) & the VIDEO_TS folder which has all the muxed video files & info files. Some players expect to see the AUDIO_TS folder even though it's empty. The audio data is actually muxed together with the video files.

When burning dvd's, it's often better burning at slow speeds. This all depends on the speed capabilities of your data bus, cpu, HDD speed (including fragmentation), how well your dvd brand works with your burner, etc.

I have the most recent Roxio Toast for mac but only an older version of Roxio for windows so I can't see where you might be going wrong. All I can do is suggest, choose dvd video as the output.

It sounds to me like if it will only play on your computer, then the format is data & not DVD-ROM (UDF). The other possibility is you're using dvd+/- format disks & your dvd player will only play one of those formats. Roughly compared, the difference between dvd+ & dvd- is like the difference between VHS & BETA video.

Question

Hi there

I have followed the Nero instructions posted in a link above and I now have a DVD disc that will play on my DVD - all smiles with that, thanks for the posts.

Nero recorded the movie in real time. Is there a qicker way of doing this or is this the best way ?


Any advice appreciated

xxxDxxx

Some people get away with burning them at maximum speed. You can try it & if you don't have any problems then that's fine. By max speed I mean max speed of the dvd disk & what the burner can handle, be that 4, 8 or 16 speed. I just feel it's safer burning at lower speeds as this has always been true for burning video type material. By maximum speed, I mean the lowest max speed of either the disk or the burner. Setting a burner to burn higher than it is capable of or burning a disk at higher than it is capable can do damage to the burner /& disk. So you can not only end up with coasters but also a coffee cup holder.

I simply recommended slower burn speeds for reliability of burning. BTW if you use DVD+ disks then the minimum burn speed is 2.2 or 4 depending on the brand & release version. There's newer versions of dvd disks coming out now & again. (A little like firmware upgrades I guess. They're improved dvd type disks.)

Unhappy

Thanks for the Mr Lord, I've left it set at auto.


My smiles were a bit premature !

Not sure where I went wrong with the movie I burnt, it plays half way on the DVD player then just freezes on a frame. No moving it forward at all, there are no chapers so I can't even skip that bit.

It plays fine on the PC though.

I have played other "homemade" DVDs with no probs before.

Any ideas ! I selected Pal which was what Nero recommended.

You need to keep your overall bit-rate around 9 Mbps or below. I always keep it between 8 to about 8.7 Mbps at maximum (or less) 2 pass VBR.

VBR (variable bit rate) is easier for a player to read. Puts less stress on the player. And set-top players are often not designed well & can't play bit rates higher than 9 very well, resulting in freeze frames, dropped frames, skipping, etc.

By overall bit rate I meant video & audio combined. PCM audio takes up 1.6 Mbps. Whereas, Dolby Digital (ac3) takes up to about max 320 kbps (0.32 Mbps) in stereo mode or higher in surround mode. So my suggestion is to ensure your audio is in dolby digital (ac3) format. It uses a heap less bit rate & is comparable to high quality mp3 but perhaps a little better.

Keep your video VBR (preferably 2 pass for better quality even if it takes twice as long) & 8 Mbps or below. I'm not sure what options are on the new Nero so I don't know if those options are available. They are for the mac Roxio Toast. Well I'm not sure about 2 pass but the other options are there. Also keep your Motion estimation quite high ... around the 8 Mbps if it's a fast action video (less if it's a slow type video like a soap.) Average bit rate depends on length of video & dvd format disk (4.7 or 8.5 GB disk.) But if you were to convert at 8 Mbps for video & PCM for audio, then that would equal 9.6 Mbps & many players will struggle to play it smoothly as suggested at the beginning.

Sorry if my description is vague. I normally convert full PAL video not convert up from the VCD size to dvd. So perhaps I'm not the best person to help due to my lack of such experience. I've only occasionally done that such as for rare video concerts/clips unavailable on dvd or VHS tape. Also, I'm a mac person for video work. Even my vid & audio training were both totally on macs. lol

Many thanks Mr Lord, I will follow all your suggestions and have another try with a different movie.

I only started trying to do this yesterday so any advice is new advice !

Thanks again
