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.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. 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.

Default trying to add music to a picture dvd

I have been trying to make some picture dvd's. When I try to add background audio from my shared music downloaded from limewire pro it keeps saying "failiure to recognize, file may be unsupported or corrupt"??????? I have tried a ton of different songs and only 1 or 2 have worked. The biggest frustration is when that message pops up it freezes my computer, and I have to shut down and restart everything!!! Anybody know how I can fix this????????

Depends on what software you are using to create the dvd. Some may not recognise some audio formats like mp3, or m4a or wma or rp. Audio on dvd's uses either of 4 formats & neither of those are the formats I just mentioned above. I presume you are wishing the dvd to be recognised by a dvd player right?

* Presumably your dvd authoring software can convert to AC3 / PCM, which would suit your needs. As mentioned some authoring softw can convert mp3's to these formats, some can't. Thing is mp3's use 44.1 KHz, whereas dvd audio uses either 48 or 96.

The audio formats dvd uses are either AC3 (dolby digital surround), PCM (almost same as aiff/wav as it is uncompressed audio but uses a lot of space & uses 48 instead of 44.1 KHz ... equates to about 11 MB/min), MPEG-2 audio (but this format is only recognised by players made for some countries). DTS which is a proprietry format .. home users are unable to convert to this format. I heard of another format SDDS but know nothing about it.

(BTW I worked on but still never got around to completing the final step of a dvd8 format job for personal use, a couple of short audio videos converted from video tape, & the remainder are slideshows with a selection of music from same artist from both cd's & mp3's including rare material. All up running time is something like 6-8 hours lol I used both PCM & ac3 audio. It all links in stories to run sequentially though can be run separately from menus. I needed to take the work material off my computer for work reasons ... it took up like 60+ GB lol )

I used dvd studio pro to do my dvd authoring, backed up with final cut pro for video, peak for audio & photoshop for pics & video. I may have used soundedit & deck also, & definitely used Toast & Jam to help with audio processing & odd things including merging, creating audio images, etc. I used A.Pack to convert to AC3 format.

Thanks for the speedy response The software that I am using is Roxio 9, media creator. When I first started the project I managed somehow to get a song with no problems. Then I tried to add another since I had more pics and needed another tune. That's when I got the "unsupported or corrupt file" message.

I've tried several other songs now, and keep getting the same message! How would I go about converting the audio?

Roxio should be able to convert it itself. Something you need to be aware of is all audio in a track must be exact same format ... can't mix ac3 & pcm on same track. You'd need to create a separate slideshow. Make sure you have the same audio conversion settings when adding the music so it converts to same format.

I use roxio Toast on mac osx, but never/rarely use it to create dvd's & the program is somewhat different to the windows version. On studio pro can add multiple audio files to same track, but it has quite advanced options. Roxio is rather basic in comparison. It may or may not have the ability to add more than one audio file to the same track (slideshow.) It's been ages since I attempted to create a slideshow using toast & can't recall if I had music or not.

What you may need to do is combine all the music outside of roxio using an audio editing program. Then save it as wav. Then add it to the slideshow & allow roxio to convert it to ac3.

It might be worth registering at the roxio forum & posting the query there. It may take a while to get answered though ... at least that's how I found it.
