I know this sort of question comes up frequently so please forgive me. I’ve just spent two hours researching this and found nothing satisfactory.
I’ve just been sent a stack of burnt DVDs. Nero InfoTool tells me this about them:
Type: DVD Video (DVD-R)
Capacity: 3.36 GB
Disc size: 12 cm
Video format: NTSC 4:3 (Mpeg 2, 720x480)
Play Time: 55 minutes (00:55:52)
Obviously capacity and playtime vary a bit from disc to disc. The actual content is rips of some factory-recorded mid-1980s NTSC VHS tapes.
I’m in Australia (PAL) and my DVD players are a bit variable when playing these discs. The problems I get tend to be obviously related to the DVD playback, it’s definitely not the content. So I want to convert the discs (menus and all) to PAL and see what that achieves.
I’ve seen three methods that seem to be mostly reliable but I’m looking for a recommendation and a clearer explanation for the best of:
I have Nero Recode 3 Essentials (Nero 8 OEM), but I’m prepared to upgrade that or get either of the other two if necessary.
Thanks in advance!
