Hi, I am somewhat new to this more advanced video editing stuff and am experiencing a VERY frustrating problem I have been tirelessly trying to solve since 2:00 PM yesterday.
I have a video file that I am trying to burn to a DVD so that I can watch it on the most basic DVD players anywhere I go.
The file originally came as 2.0G mp4 file and I have managed to shrink it to a 690 MB wmv file.
The only problem is that when I try to use Windows DVD maker to burn to a DVD, Windows DVD Maker (WDM) says the video is 16 minutes too long although the the file size is considerably smaller than the allotment on the DVD.
The tools/software I have available is:
Windows Movie Maker (2.6 and Live versions)
Windows DVD Maker
Blaze Media Pro trial edition
If totally necessary, I can install Adobe CS4 programs from my university..
Is there any way possible to get this file to fit onto a DVD5 with the available tools and/or any other freeware apps out there? I plan on buying the Blaze software although I cannot right now due to funds.
Thanks for your time .
