Long downloaded movie to dvd r

vbimport

#1

I’ve just downloaded a 2:53 long movie from the internet. Avi 936mb. I want to put it on a standard 2hr DVD. I have vista home premium, 1gig ram. I’ve been told about DVDshrink(not vista, so i’ve been told) Now i’ve downloaded AnyDVD and it appears to rip, not burn…I’m probably wrong!

Anyone help me?

What FREEWARE do I use? I don’t need to rip: need to burn.

If all you want to do is burn the avi to a disk, this is easily done with ImgBurn. www.imgburn.com Free to use. Just click on [I]Write files/folders to a disc [/I] when you start the program. That will get you in the correct mode for ImgBurn, then add your file, make a title, set your burning speed and click on the big disk at the bottom to start the process.

If you want to convert to dvd-video format and burn to a disk, you’ll need something like DVDFlick or AVStoDVD. Both can be set up to burn automatically. Make sure to set the output to match your particular country’s dvd specifications. In the US we use NTSC settings, most of the rest of the world uses PAL.

Thank you for the info. This will allow the long movie to be burned to the 2 hr dvd?

Post the entire log file. Start ImgBurn. Go to Help, then click ImgBurn Logs.

Copy and paste the entire log file.

I’m not fond of Ritek media. It may be part of the problem

this may be more than one event. But it all has to do with the one movie. and thanks for all the help!


#7

In the middle of the log files, the burn session that starts at 12:50:06 shows a completely successful burn. I see no error in that log.

You really should slow down the burning speed with these Ritek disks though. Try burning at 8x.


#8

Thank you for your help. I will slow it down and see. I still haven’t tried the long movie, but now I will give it a shot.

that software, imageburn, does that change the time limits of the disk or reformat the movie to fit?

Could I fit, say three 1hr shows the same way?

Sorry for all the questions…it appears that you are way better at this than me, so I will ask while I can

Thanks again


#9

ImgBurn will not reformat the files. It will burn 4.3 gb worth of data onto a blank single layer dvd. If your files are smaller than that amount, they will fit.

If you try to convert avi files to dvd-video, you will get much larger file sizes, due to the relative inefficiency of the mpeg2 codec used in dvd-video. It is possible to convert 3hrs of say, xvid or divx avi files into dvd-video and fit them onto a single layer dvd, but the quality of the video will suffer. I wouldn’t try to put more than 2 1/2 hrs of dvd-video onto a single layer dvd.


#10

Thanks again. I really appreciate the help.:cool:


#11

ya know in all my excitement, i never did try them in a dvd player…Disk ERRoR!

Done now, I’m out of disks.


#12

Your player will have to have support for divx or xvid avi files if you want to play them without conversion. Quite a few dvd players have that capability these days.


#13

what do file type do you recommend. what do i convert to. after conversion, then i go trough imgburn, Right?


#14

It would be easier to buy a cheap dvd player that has divx certification. They normally have a Divx logo on the front.

If you want to convert to dvd-video, check out the free programs I mentioned earlier:

DVDFlick: http://www.dvdflick.net/

and AVStoDVD: http://www.videohelp.com/tools/AVStoDVD

Both will convert avi files to dvd-video, and can be set up to automatically burn with ImgBurn. Again, I’ll warn you that you need to set the programs to output in the proper format. Since you seem to be from Texas, you’ll need to set them to output to NTSC standards.
DVDFlick seems to be slightly easier for newcomers. AVStoDVD has a better encoder, called HCenc. Take your pick of which one to use.

Don’t try to cram in more than 2 1/2 hrs of video into your dvd-video compilation.

Good luck

As stated above, [I]IF[/I] your player supports “divx or xvid avi”, you don’t have to convert to anything…If it [I]doesn’t [/I], then you [I]will[/I] have to convert to DVD structure…Try DVDflick, for AVI—>to DVD…Good luck!..

man, i sure don’t want to have broken the law. That would pi** my off.
That’s the trouble with not knowing things like that. if you get an answer, please let me know. If I can still download from there or not.
How the heck do you know?
