Burning A Standard Dvdburning dvd
Posted 02 June 2012 - 02:14 PM
Anyways, my question is, when I'm burning a dvd. 1) I have a file that is 1.8 Gb, when i drag it onto toast it says it takes up around 3.68gb of the DVD. Why is that? Secondly, I downloaded handbrake because the files were incompatible, and now when i Burn the DVD it take FOREVER to encode. Is there anyone who can give me just the run down on how to burn a simple standard dvd using these two programs? D:

A question to ask yourself is why you want a video DVD. If you are making copies to send to others to play on their DVD players it makes good sense. But if you just want this for yourself it's possible you may not need to do this. Many HDTVs and Blu-ray players can likely play your source file directly by streaming from your Mac or from a USB flash drive. There also are many products such as the WDTV and AppleTV that may be able to play that video just as it is.

If she wants to watch it on a computer then it can work to burn the source video as a data disc using the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting and no encoding is needed. Some Blu-ray players also can play videos from a data disc.

How would I go about doing this process, because the videos are in 720, and they are around 1h, give or take 2/3 minutes. Would I only be able to fit 1 video on a DVD+R?

To burn a data disc, choose the Data window and select DVD-Rom (UDF) as the format. Click New disc and name the disc and then add your video.
