I currently use sky anytime pc whihc allows th edownloads of movies in a wmv format with drm
I use aimersoft alvideo converter to rerecord these movies into a non protected format. the video formats it records to are:
wmv using wmv1 encoder(with option of changing resolution, frame rate and bit rate) max res is 1280 X 720
mp4 using h.264 encoder (with option of changing resolution, frame rate and bit rate) max res is 1280 X 720
and also dvd format (vob file), but with resolution of 720*576 max.
I use nero 8 to burn or create dvds
therefore which is the best format to re-record these films in, so that when i use nero vision, it is high quality but also the quickest bearing in mind i;m wanting to fit one movie per one standard dvd 4.7gb disc
one of my movies is in wmv format frame width 540
frame height 432
data rate and total bitrate 1000kbps
frame rate 25fps
lenght of film 1hour 28 mins
audio bt rate 96kbps
also when i record, and if i choose to rereocrd in wmv, and i select resolution 1280x720, (that being 720p in effect) would that increase the quality of it or reduce the quality when it is eventually burned onto a dvd and played on a 1080p tv using an xbox 360 to play the dvd, and connectong the xbox using hdmi.
and if i change the audio bitrate to 128kbps would that increas eor reduce sound quality?
and finally how do you burn a single vob file of the movie into a dvd format playable on most dvds?
