Thread: Couple of probs burning

  1. #1

    Default Couple of probs burning

    I have downloaded two demo vcd burning software that would only burn 200mb or less and my vid says its 382mb. I uninstalled them and downloaded another and when i tried to burn the movie with that it said it was 712mb or somthing like that and the disk is 700mb. i encoded the vid with tmpgenc and when i tryed to open it with windows media player it was only audio. So i tried to "transfer the file" with the windows thing where you hit send file to a disk and said it was succesful. Then i tried to put that on my dvd player that on the side said: dvd, video cd, cd and other stuff. So i tried to play the disk and it said the disk was not supported or somthing like that. Im getting really frustrated and need help. Also does any one know of a good free software for burning svcd's. Thanks

    Unless your CD/DVD writer was purchased after you bought your PC and was an OEM version you should have got some burning s/w with it.

    Other than that, I personally like Nero for burning. They have a freebie download/trial version. Just cough up the 30 UKP or so if you like it.

    The 712MB movie probably would have burned to a CD (I'm assuming the video was downloaded )

    Well we got the computer from my grampa and got the cd burner with it not in the computer, so i guess it was bought after the computer was. It came with cd creator 4.03, but im not sure if that will burn a vcd. And is it supposed to only be audio when you encode with tmpgenc? Mark, What do you mean it should burn to a cd when it is 712 and the cd is 700mb?And i would try the trial version of nero if i knew it would burn more than 200mb unlike the other trials i tried. Thank

    Ok, i might try that but, still nobody has answered my question about tmpgenc. When you encode to svcd format with tmpgenc and try to play it with windows media player is it supposed to only be audio, cus that is what it does to me? Thanks

    You'll need an MPEG2 decoder. If you don't have a DVD player, you probably won't have one.
