Video Flickering

Hi to all … I am a relatively new user to this program and I am happily surprised of the speed of making a DVD with it… Nevertheless, I came down to a problem lately, never had it before… I made the dvd menu (everything works perfect) but when the movie starts to play, I get a green flickering on the screen every other second. I tried to do the same movie a couple more times but i still get this… Anybody with an idea what goes wrong ???

And another question : Can you add submenus to your DVD ???

Thank you very much

Hi there,

without a full conversion log, it’s hard to see what is going on.

But I have 2 theories:

  1. You generated a PAL dvd when you need NTSC.

  2. You used real low quality media and/or you burned too fast

Could any of those be true ?

The PAL thing might be the prob… But the video was PAL anyway, there was no conversion to it (to NTSC or from NTSC). The thing is though, that the produced DVD disc is playing completely normal in my pc, but when i put it on the dvd player everything falls apart (sort of speaking… :slight_smile: ) :doh: And it is only this video, any other i’ve produced plays fantastic.

I did not kept the conversion log, but at the end it said that the process was completed successfuly. :confused:

Hi there,

In your settings, do not leave the TV Format / Video Standard to “[B]Automatic[/B]”

If you get a PAL video file, it will generate a PAL dvd.

Not good when you need NTSC :doh:

I need NTSC so I force everthing to NTSC !

Conversion log is still there, open CxD and from rightmost top menu “open log”.

Does this help ???

Yes, you are using old version.
Please update and try again.

And - you used DVD+R, can your DVD player play it ok?
If disk plays fine on computer then problem is your DVD player.

Hi there I need help to I am new at this as well. I have a perfect copyon the computer but when I put it in my Dvd Player it starts to roll and flicker. Any suggestions?

Is there a certain setting that I should have?

hello sweetheart72 welcome to the forum.

The best thing to get help is to post your log file. Are you using the latest version (2.1.5) and are you sure you selected the right output format for your region (pal or ntsc)?

Thanks,
