MPEGs to DVD so they play on standalones

I’ve missed finding what we’re using to make up the other necessary fles to get the mpeg files onto a DVD do they’ll play on a standalone, etc.

Is there any freeware that compiles the BUP, IFO, VIDEO_TS files for the mpegs I’ve made?

I can use DVDDecrypter/ImgBurn/DVDShrink, but for some DVD’s I end up wth just the MPEG file, which I can force their playback on pc, but they obviously need the other files that make up the VIDEO_TS folder.

Just looking for the basics on my DVD’s, chaptering’s nice and I think either one of mentioned burning app’s do it anyway, so it seems there’s freeware out there to compile the VIDEO_TS files?

DVDFlick is a free option I’ve seen recommended here, you may like to try that. :slight_smile:

If your mpeg files are already in dvd compliant form—correct resolution, frame rate, correct audio—you don’t have to reencode it. In that case, all you would need would be a free authoring program. DVDStyler is a free one you might be able to use.

If they aren’t already compliant, then they will have to be reencoded, and the program Arachne recommended is a free one that will do this for you.

To check the mpeg files for their specifications, you can use a free utility called Gspot. And if you want to know what specifications are required for dvd video, you should look at this page at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dvd_video
PAL specs are for most of the world, but in the US we use NTSC.

Hope this helps.

Thankyou for the kind words, and you’re welcome :)…hope the software works for you, as I’ve not tried it (I use ConvertXtoDVD, sadly not freeware).

Oops. Meant to say seeking freeware that will make up the VIDEO_TS files to compliment my already stored vob’s.

Annnnd, since the vob’s are DVD compliant, realized that DVDFlick seems just what I was looking for…

becaaaause, I simply chgd the xtn’s to mpg and writing iso now. Expecting it’s going to do what I needed.
