Questions

Hello I have no clue about converting files to dvd which I can play on my dvd players. My questions are the following:

When I convert an avi what do I convert to? Do I just click convert? If so I did and they wont play on my dvd players. Im using DVD -R which works fine on home videos which I record but it wont play an avi after converting. They both say illegal disc when I try to play them on my dvd players. Am I suppose to adjust my settings in the options or someother type of tweaks? Thanks…

Ok I found some info on here with a real deep search and now my video is playing on my dvd but with one problem. Their is absolutely no sound coming out. Is their a fix?

This is my log…

Hi,

Based on your log, there is an audio track.

8/11/2007 5:19:25 PM info Output Stream#1 - Audio: ac3, 48000 Hz, stereo, 192 kb/s, [B]no automatic gain control[/B]
8/11/2007 5:19:25 PM info Output Stream#0 - Video: mpeg2video, yuv420p, 720x480, q=2-31, 2644 kb/s

Sometimes the audio track is so low, you thing there isn’t one.
Raise the volume real loud and see if you can hear it.

You can also use the Volume Automatic Gain in the settings.
I have mine set to 3db. Try not to go higher than 5db since your going to create new issues :confused:

8/11/2007 6:56:30 PM info Writing speed [U]requested x16.0[/U], [B]effective x6.0[/B]
8/11/2007 6:56:29 PM info Available write speed: 18x, 16x, 12x, 8x, 6x, 4x, 2x

I would not burn higher than 8x MAX to have a good and constant burn.

I personally burn everthing at 4x !
