Nothing is for sure. Neither of the scans you posted is all that unusual. Again, you may be over-compressing the movie. Or, you may have uncovered an underlying issue that your DVD player has with recordable media.
Movie is not even compressed. open dvd shrink and most of my movies fit on disks with out compression.
Scan at 4x instead of MAX.
Slower does not always mean better. In theory, slow CAV burning reduces jitter, but in practice this is not always the case. Most drives are nowadays optimized for fast 8x and 16x burning.
If I scan at 4x burn quality score of around 87
Going to get the media i posted above. it is forsure better then what I have now. Knock on wood I get better results.
Only Question I have now is.
What is better for movies dvd-r or dvd+r or does it even matter.
Also since you own the same drive what speed to you write movies at? and also what media do you use.
