CXD conversion error not seen before

#1

Using ver .233 ConvertXtoDVD. I get the highlighted error below when burning more than one video to a dvd. I thought if the output was more than 4.2G the program would compress to make it fit, instead I get the overflow error. Not sure if it effects playback, I haven’t played it yet but have had several others showing up to 7meg overflow…why dosen’t it compress to fit?

hello,

The software will be updated with improvement concerning overflow.

Know that you can change add a custom setting for output under “settings” tab “encoding”, ‘target size’


#3

Okay, Thanks!!

What happens to the with overflow dvd? Does the overflow megs just not burn so the movie/s will be missing the end…?


#4

The limit chosen for ConvertX is below what should fit on a usual DVDR media, so your DVD should burn fine.


#5

Hi,

VSO tries to calculate the bitrate, so it will not overflow 4400mb which is a logical limit, so we won’t burn too close to the edge of the media.

There are still minor bugs in the calculator, as you can see yours overflowed just a little.

But you can probably fit 4469mb on a media, which would cause you to burn right on the edge of the media, which is a big issue with cheap media quality.

So as mentioned above, your output was 4401mb so it will definitly be all there and you will be able to burn it to your media :clap:

[U]Here’s my opinion on the above:[/U]

You are burning in Packet Writting mode.
I would suggest going in the setting, and enabling

[B][X] Prefer SAO for DVD-R[/B]

This will burn in Session At Once mode instead of Packet Writting.

You are burning at 16x, I suggest not burning above [B]8x MAX[/B] to make since and smooth burns.

And because you are in PIO mode, your burner probably doesn’t burn after than 2x, 3x since your PC can’t feed the burner.

Enable DMA !
