Compiling Videos Using Easy Creator 10

Question

My OS is Win7 Home 32bit. I downloaded a free movie from YouTube. The movie is split up into 4 MP-4 files. Each file is 17.5 mb's. Is there a way with Easy Creator 10 to put the 4 file video clips into 1 movie file that will play from start to end without changing files? and compress and format the file so it will play on a stand alone dvd player?

I have to disagree with you. Easy Media Creator 10 is compatible with Windows 7. I used the file copper to burn backup cd's and I have copied movies that I have downloaded from YouTube that are 1 single file and burned them to dvd to play on my stand alone DVD player. I just don't know how to combine the 4 files into 1. Also I take it I would have to buy Creator 2010. There is an old saying " if it isn't broke don't fix it". I am running win7 on this laptop because I don't have a install disk for Win 8.1.

 

 

Easy Media Creator 10 is not compatible with Windows 7? Creator 2010 is.

It will fail over time, we do know as we have been there and tried to keep it running as well as trouble shooting with other users.

 

Win 8 is nothing you will ever miss having! Win 10, not so bad but no reason to make the leap as long as Win 7 works.

 

You can try putting your files together in VideoWave. Just pick all 4 at the same time (Add File) and load them. Make sure they are in order and Export As.

 

Try to find the 'Same as Original' It will be there if your clips are HD. Otherwise you can create a file, like an MP4 or an mpeg2. These will play on PC's and possibly play in a DVD/BD Player (not all accept it!). You will need to run a test file.

 

Creating a DVD is easy from VideoWave. Just Save the project (xxx.dmsm), close VW and open MyDVD. In MyDVD add the project file (xxx.dmsm) and burn a disc. Make sure you set it to HQ and keep discs to 1 hr for a 4.7 GB disc. ;)

Jim you didn't answer the question "Export As" export as what?

 

 

You really need to TRY these things! They will become self evident when you do -_-

Reble, You don't actually.

 

Since you said you were wanting to play the composite movie on a stand-alone DVD player, once you have the four pieces as one clip in Videowave 10 you can send it directly to MyDVD for burning without having to first "export as" anything.

 

See the DVD icon right next to the "Export As" button? That's the one to use.

Thanks for the info. I will let you know the outcome. 2 other questions. This are old tv shows available free on YouTube. In "my dvd maker" is it possible to compress the hour long shows so 4 of the shows can fit on one 4.7 DVD? I also have some 8.5gb blank DVDs.

Remember, a 4.7 GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of best quality video. You can compress the video but then you lose quality. If the source is already low quality then I would not bother trying to squeeze more the 60 minutes on a DVD.

 

I have found that the DL DVDs are more trouble then they are worth and don't bother using them. In fact I can no longer find them in any local electronics store.

In VideoWave is there a way to change the "production name" to something else?

Save As will do that if you don't like the original name.

 

Alternatively, you can name the Export file anything you want instead of the project name default.
