So I’m trying to burn a few avi’s to a disc to play in my home DVD player. 3/4 work fine (for the most part; more to come on that in a sec), but the fourth apparently has some issue that makes it entirely unreadable; my DVD player says “No HD support,” and skips to the next track.
I’ve never gotten that message before from the numerous videos I’ve burned and played on it, so I really don’t know what the problem is; I do have a few clues, however. After failing to achieve compatibility with my player, I noticed that the one video file was substantially larger than its counterparts, when they are from the same source and roughly the same length. I also noticed that, when I tried a different program to burn the disc, it would not let me add it to the que due to a “codec error.” I burned it with yet another program, and it would again not play in my DVD player.
From the above clues, I’m guessing that my DVD player has a problem with the codecs used to compress the file I’m trying to play. It may possibly be a high-definition file, although I seriously doubt it. But, I barely know anything about high-def or codecs in general, so I’m by no means correct. If you have any ideas, give me a shout.
My second problem is a bit simpler, I think. I sometimes have issues with files I have burned to where it skips around every now and then when I play it in my dvd player, yet both the original file and the burned one work fine played from my computer. I would think that it is an issue with burn speed, and that I should burn things slower, but if that were true, then would I not have the same skipping issue with my computer?
I’ll give player information if you need it, but I’m not going to bother typing it all out right now since I don’t think that it is relevant to my issue. Let me know, and get back to me. Thanks a lot,
