I'm a new guy to the forums, so if this question is in the wrong area, or it's been answered already, I apologize, and feel free to move this to where it belongs in the forum.
The BackgroundI've started a videography business for weddings and other events almost two years ago. A recent problem has come up among a majority of my latest clients...
The problemSometimes video will play fine on the DVD players I test with, but when CLIENTS look at the DVD's/ the DVD's will stop playing/ the music and footage will "catch"/ glitch - and we see little green squares in the footage.
At other times, when we play the same DVD again, the green squares will show up in slightly different places, but they always show on DVD.
The questions1) I'm thinking this is a DVD disk problem, as the footage plays correctly on my computer, and can even play fine on my DVD player (though recently, my DVD players are showing the same problem.
We've cleaned the DVD's, and cleaned the actual players countless times, and it doesn't seem to clear up any issue. I know the footage is good, as I look through it before burning several times.
2) However, could this be a problem with process of conversion to DVD? (I use I-DVD)
Sometimes a client will find that after only one or two viewings, (in which the footage will play fine) the DVD's will start doing this. And the clients are starting to complain that this is happening at a constant basis now.
If you need any technical specifications, let me know, and I will try to provide answers.
I use the Memorex DVD-R's that hold 4.6 gigs of info. (so it would be a DVD-R, single side, single layer burning system that I would have to burn footage to).
I'm looking into getting better quality DVD's for burning.
Any tips on good brands and companies that won't give you these glitches?
