Can someone tell me if there is anything specific that I need to watch out for when burning tv episodes to a DVD? I have a divx capable DVD player, and I noticed that AVIs play smoothly on my dvd player if i burn them as DVD video. While if I burn them as a data DVD, some of the playback smoothness is gone and the playback is glitchy.
The thing is, I can place two 1-hour episodes only of any show on a DVD if I burn them as DVD-Video, while I can do 10 episodes on a single DVD as a data-DVD. So burning as a data-dvd is much better space wise. It is also better time wise. Buring a DVD-Video takes at least 30 minutes while it takes 5 minutes to burn a data dvd.
This issue is always noticable with 1.4 GB rips of movies as well, while the 700 MB movie rips work fine.
Is this file encoding related or dvd-player related?
