Dvds Are Jerky And Fuzzy

Question

This is very frustrating. I'm using MY DVD, and burning a disk that contains both still pictures and movies that I took on vacation last month. The content looks very good when viewed from the hard disk through EMC 10. But when I burn it to DVD, the menu, still pictures and movies all appear to be shimmering just a little bit. I've tried burning a 16x and 4x, and it doesn't seem to matter.

 

Any suggestions?

Have you tried the render option to software if its currently set to hardware. In myDVD look under Tools?options for this setting.

No, I haven't tried that. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll give it a shot.

A lot also depends on your graphics - what graphics card/chipset are you using?

 

If it's a laptop, you're stuck but if it's a desktop, a higher rated card would be better (you don't need a really top end gaming one, most of the medium ones are fine)

Thanks. It's a 5 year old Dell desktop that uses the 845GL chipset. Next question for you. I brought the very jerky dvd into work to try it on another computer. And it looks good. So, Roxio burned it correctly, it's just a matter of play back on that machine. Do you think an upgrade in the chipset would fix that? The DVD burner is brand new. I just bought it last week.

Have you updated the drivers for that display adapter? I have the same Intel 845GL chipset and don't have any problems.

Thanks everybody. I found the problem, although I don't understand it. I was playing back the DVDs using CinePlayer. But when I loaded the OEM verson of Power DVD that came with the new DVD burner I just bought, it works perfectly. In fact, it wors perfectly on the TV, and using any software other than CinePlayer.

I may be an issue of video acceleration with that program. Open it, click on the wrench, and turn off the video acceleration.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just tried it, and that wasn't it. Not a big deal, since I can look at it with any other software, but it is curious.
