I am running Easy Media Creator 10 on a Dell Inspiron 3541 laptop OS Win7 home 32bit. The Easy Media Creator 10 has worked very well for me over the years.  I fixed the videowave10.exe problem.

 

I am having a problem with 2 movies that I downloaded.  I have watched lot and record things off this particular web page's free stuff all the time with no problem. This is the 1st time I used this web page's movie rental service. I d/l the movies "Sahara @ a file size of 4.24gb" and "Battleground @ 5.35gb". The movies are in a MPG format. The downloader that I have for this web page wouldn't download this movies. So I used "Replay Video Capture" (I have used this prog before). I just reinstalled Replay Video. But I forgot to reset the video format from the default setting to DVD ntsc. I can watch the 2 movies on the laptops C: hard drive, I have enough hard drive space and memory. But I can't burn them to DVD or move them to my storage hard drive because of the file size.  I can play both movies in Windows Media Player and VLC Media player just fine. But EMC10 has a problem with the video's, sound plays fine in EMC10, see screen capture bellow. EMC10 is the only prog that I have to edit, compress, and burn movies/videos to DVD.

If your downloaded movies come from a legit site they may contain DRM Digital Rights management.

 

If your downloaded movies come from not so legit site, it is illegal to copy commercial movies and this thread will end!


I'm just a fellow user so please don't blame Roxio for any misguidance I may have provided.

The web page I am talking about is Youtube's free and payed downloads. All legal and above board. Some tech support forums (I will not name those forums) don't like Youtube to be mentioned in posts in there forums because they get financial backing from the parent company of Youtube. In the case of 1 forum (again I won't name names) it comes direct from the horses mouth. In the form of a pm from the forum's administrator.

The VideoLAN Player has the ability to Convert a video.

 

As a test, take a Short video that is not working in Roxio and convert it to something else. Even leaving it a mpg just renaming the destination file will be fine.

 

After converting, add the new file to Roxio and see what it does.

 

If you have problems there, note what they are and let us know.

The other forum does not want Youtube mentioned in any way shape or form on there forum because they get money from Youtube's parent company to keep there forum online. That came direct from that forum's administrator via a private message to me on that forum. That's as much as I can say without breaking confidence.

Those 2 movies are the only ones that I have, that have a problem with in EMC10.  All the other movies that I have downloaded from Youtube where edited and burned to DVD via EMC10 already. I have enough hard drive space in the laptop's internal hard drive to make a copy of one of those movies, then make the test with VLC media player prog. then try and see if the video works in EMC10. Though I didn't know that VLC could convert a video. I only used it for a player. VLC is a much better media player then Windows media player.   I collect old war, sci fi and western movies. I am also a big collector of Star Trek movies and tv episodes. I am known as a Treker. I am part of a Star Trek fan club and go to conventions.

Digital Guru, well I made a copy of the movie battle gorund. The original file size was 5.25gb in  mpg format. Now that the file has been converted and crunched down by the prog VLC.  The file is now 1.2gb in size and in mp4 format. The movie still plays just fine and it is compacted enough to beable to fit on my D hard drive and one 4.7gb DVD. But when I run the movie through EMC10 > mydvd.  The video plays but no sound now. But in Windows media player and VLC media player the movie plays fine both video and sound in the mp4 format.

Video is measured in TIME.

 

The size of a file is only a result of the time and the total bit rate it was rendered at. If a variable bitrate was used, then they cannot be compared. Roxio uses a fixed bit rate...

 

I am not clear what it is you are trying to accomplish here??? You want to burn to DVD but never said if you want to make a Data DVD or a Movie DVD (makes a big difference!)

 

You are very hung up on file size. There is no magic compression they all have a Price! That price is Video Quality. If faded grainy video makes you happy then simply choose a low quality output.

 

If you like high quality, get a bigger disc or split it across 2.

 

A 4.7GB disc holds 1 hour at HQ. An 8.5GB holds 2 hours. - these are DVD Movie values. Data Disc files would be smaller but not playable in all DVD Players -_-

Forgot to mention ~ to keep audio when using VLAN you have to check the "Keep original audio track"

The ultimate goal is to burn a single 4.7gb movie DVD that will play in any regular stock off the shelf player. As far as file size goes. As long as the movie fits on the DVD with the best video quality posable. That's fine with me. Also thanks for the tip on "Keeping original audio track". I will try converting the 2 movies again with the "Keep original audio track" checked. I will let you know how it turns out.

I didn't know about the keep audio track until you mentioned losing it :lol:

 

Why on earth someone would set the default to producing a half a--ed output is beyond me :huh:

 

For quality, never leave MyDVD to its' default of "Fit to disc"!!! (lower right drop box) Always set it to HQ.

 

Problem is that if you project is 1 frame over the max, it will abruptly drop to the next lower setting and will not tell you! Also the mbps render rate drops too which degrades quality.

 

Look at how extreme these drops are:

 

            HQ = 720 X 480 @ 9Mbps

            SP = 352 X 240 @ 6Mbps

            LP = 352 X 240 @ 4Mbps

            ELP = 352 X 240 @ 3Mbps

Jim. I tried converting the movie Sahara again with VLC and this time I checked "keep original audio track".  Nothing changed on EMC10. When I ran the movie Sahara in EMC10 > mydvd.  I still had video and no sound. And Sahara still plays just fine, sound and video, in Windows media player and VLC media player. I also tried the "mydvd" sub prog with a free movie that I downloaded from Youtube with the Youtube downloader prog. And that movie and I tried a few others on the HD in EMC10 > mydvd and those movies work fine, both video and sound.  I have no clue as to why the sound won't play on Sahara and Battleground in EMC10. I am wondering if I need play those to movies again in VLC and use Real Play Video capture again and capture the movies again in a different format.

No solid explanation for this... Please clarify that in MyDVD, if you preview it (play) in that program does the audio exist?

 

Have you taken the converted file into VidoeWave by itself? If not do that and see if the audio is present. If it is, try going directly to MyDVD from there.

Jim. When I run ether movie in MYDVD > preview. There is no sound. And I can't load ether movie direct into VideoWave. VideoWave only excepts files with and ending of *.dsm,  *.pssd and *.dmss.  The rest of Windows 7 Home 32bit works just fine.Sound works just fine on movies, audio files and so on.

Reble,

 

If you use "Create a new production" in Videowave rather than "Edit an existing production", and then the "Add Photo/Video" button you'll be given the chance to load any of a large list of media file types. (see bottom of the screen clip)

 

add video.jpg

 

 

Jim is wanting you to take the converted file into Videowave in this manner, and tell him if it has sound at that stage.

I just created a new production in Videowave from the original movie and it wouldn't take period. See 1st screen capture bellow. I did a new production with the mp4 version of the movie. It took ok but still no sound. See 2nd screen capture bellow.

 

 

 

The next screen capture. The video is playing but no sound

 

Now this forum won't let me insert the screen captures in jpg picture files

I finely solved the sound problem in EMC10. I had to change the video and sound settings in "Replay video capture", see the screen capture bellow (if the forum will let me post the screen capture this time). When I originally used "Replay video capture" to record the original movies I had Replay set to the wrong video format (the video was set I think to DVD) and the wrong sound setting. The sound was set to "virtual audio driver" and not to "sound capture driver".  I started over again from the original movie downloads and changed the settings in Replay video to MPEG-4(AVI). Then I recorded the original movies with the new settings in Replay and voila  :D  now the sound and video play in sync in Videowave.  wahoo! it is done!    :rolleyes:

 

Ps: every time when I past in a JPG file I get the following error message "You are not allowed to use that image extension on this community." when I hit the post button. And I have to del the jpg files before I can post.
