I have a Lumix TZ7 which seems to record a reasonably good quality HD video. I have used PowerDirector 9 64bit Ultra to create a film of our son's rugby match, and when I view it in .mov format on the computer it is great quality and really good to watch. When I burn to disc the file size drops from 20+GB to about 5GB, and so does the quality of the video (even with the video quality options set at the highest selection of HD 1920x1080p).
My question is in 2 parts:
1. Can I just burn the .mov file to a 25GB BD-R, and if so
2. Will it play on any computer that can play Quick Time files, or will the computer need to have certain video playing spec?
Thanks in advance for any help - at about £2.50 a disc I can't afford to keep experimenting with my BD-R's for ever!!
In case it matters, I have: Windows 7 64bit, Intel Core i5 2500 @ 3.3GHz, 8GB RAM, and a Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 6950 graphics card.
