I rarely burn videos on CD, but now I want to make backup for my youtube clips collection on a CD-R. A few years ago, a friend of mine (computer expert) suggest the maximum speed for burning Video CD (popular in Asia) is 12x. Increase it, and it’ll produce skips on the movie.
Now, recently I read here that the suggested best speed to burn a CD-R is 16x or more.
Should I go with 16x, or stick with 12x for movies (and youtube clips)?
Burner: Pioneer A12FX
media: some colorful Verbatim CD-R (with pictures of T-Shirt, Cups, etc). I use ImgBurn to see the supported write speed, it says: 4x, 10x, 16x, 24x, 32x, 40.
