Is the video copyright protected? Does the process work with another AVCHD file that you have that is not from YouTube or one that you are sure is not copy protected - you seem to say it does but do not give information on the type of file?

Please post a dxdiag.exe evaluation of your computer. It may be somewhat underpowered.

since i have an ssd drive, quad-core 955 black processor, nvidia gtx550ti graphics and 16gig of memory, there is no way my rig is underpowered.
the resulting mp4 file downloaded has no security descriptors that would prevent burning.
it burned to normal dvd fine.
the avchd dvd process crashed.
now i get a lot of crashes until the regular dvd eventually works.
source:
used YTD to download.
wanted to burn for a friend who doesn't have internet.
nxt2 is really freaky now.

please help.

:(

Is the video you downloade about 1:21 hours long? If yes then of course you can't burn it to a AVCHD DVD. That only allows up to about 40 minutes of video.

True but only at HQ setting. If you are willing to go down to EP you can get 1:24 on a 4.7 but quality is only slightly better than a DVD at HQ. (personally if I can't do HQ I don't bother -_-)

I think the best 2 things to try are to a different clip of about the same length and run a proper repair.

The clip should be one of known quality and if it is short in time, just keep adding it in until 1:21 is reached...

This will help confirm the question of your download file.

Next and this won't take much, do a proper repair:

First thing to do is to turn off your Anti Virus, Firewalls, Registry Cleaners, etc.

Now insert your Roxio Disc or Run your download.

Be sure you accept the offer to Check for Updates (this is for Roxio, not Windows)

When you reach the screen where Repair is offered, choose that!

When the Repair competes, turn your AV & Firewall back on and reboot.


Oh, just so you know, your PC or at least the settings you use can indeed be the problem... Buying an airplane does not make you a pilot :D
