    Default Movie will not play in all DVD players

    Hi gang,

    I did a 25 minute highlight video of my sons basketball season in Premier Pro and used Encore to set up a menu. It is an Mpeg-2 format. It plays 100% of the time on my laptop and will play on some DVD players but not others. :( I have a new Sony DVD player that it will not work on. My son has a Toshiba that it plays fine on. It will also play on X-Boxes and Playstations. Any help would be appreciated.

    Not all DVD players are happy playing all DVD writable media. Some players will happily play one disc, another will refuse. Annoying, huh? You'll have to expirement with different brands - some are more compatible than others.

    I'd just like to add that as well as incompatible media brands it may simply be a case of incompatible media format as well. i.e. Check with the manufacturer to see if the DVD player is compatible with DVD-R (or whatever format of disk you've made).

    If the player doesn't like DVD-R's at all then there's little point trying different brands eh?

    Problem can be set by VBR situation ou high bitrate - out of DVD specification - 9.8 Mbps for video and audio together in the max preset...

    Try to use CBR setting and bitrate up to 8 Mbps for MPEG2 - and WAV or Dolby Digital Audio
