An hour of what? Music…video…etc.

What burner do you have? Will it overburn?

Well I mean both video,and music. Most cd recording media here
in the U.S. only hold about 80 minutes.

There is no duration per se for video, it’s entirely up to the compression ratio. ‘80’ or ‘99’ minutes are an indication of duration for standard CD-audio music files only (i.e. uncompressed 44.1Khz 16 bits stereo audio files) :wink:

I don’t want to sound patronizing, but 80mins is over an hour…

or video.
Thanks ZAP.

Yo-

A CD-R holds 700mb of data (.7gb)

A DVD holds 4.7gb of data

Thats like almost 7x the capacity-eh!! :rolleyes:

Can you burn CD audio to a DVD, and have it play in a DVD player?

I think the idea he’s getting at is, why do we even need CDs anymore, when DVDs can hold audio, and DVD players can play audio? Why can’t we install mini-DVD players in our cars, and use them to play audio DVDs? Why hasn’t the DVD supplanted the CD for audio?

Sure you can throw a couple hours of .avi’s (Divx) on a CD-R. Or you can throw a few hours of MP3’s on one also.

Only by cheating on the format (VideoDVD).
Check out the audio section -> AudioDVD Creator etc.

CHEF,
How about cd’s for video . If there are no cd’s that hold 2hours
of video , is it possible to compress a movie or another hour of
content on a cd.
Thanks ZAP.

Once again, for video there is no specific duration for CD or DVD.

It’s the actual amount of data only that limits the duration. There is no other thing that the actual amount of data that limits the duration of the video (or compressed audio, for that matter) that you can put on a CD or a DVD.

So if one compresses the video a lot, one can put, say, a 4 hours movie onto a single Video CD. I’ve seen this with DivX trasncoding, which can reach very high amounts of compression. A neighbour of mine put all of his movies to CD this way. The thing is, such insane compression ratios end in awful image quality, of course. :Z - suitable only for people with low expectations in terms of image quality, and very small TVs.

There are many ways…

Just search for KVCD, XVCD, XSVCD etc. and have a look at videohelp.com
