    Toast Titanium 12.1 Update Has Been Released!

    Not to dis Roxio or Toast, there is an app called ClipWrap that will wrap AVCHD into QuickTime movies which you should then have no trouble burning.

    Toast Titanium 12.1 Update Has Been Released!

    Have you tried the DVD on another computer? My experience with Mac Super Drives(especially Optiarc) are not generally good. I have external burners on all my computers. If the DVD plays on your DVD player I would look strongly suspect the optical drive on the compute

    I too have another Mac. A late 2009 iMac with 2.8Ghz i7 processor, 8 Gb memory, running OSX 10.10.2. I get the exact same results from Toast 12.1 as I do on my Mac Mini. The mp4 file seemed to take a little longer to encode but playback was unwatchable on DVD player. I guess I will have to wait for Roxio to issue another update before I venture past version 12.01. As I said before others must have the same results.

    It does the same on mp4's. I'm surprised no one else has complained or commented on it.

    Toast Titanium 12.1 Update Has Been Released!

    OK, I have finished the comparison burns. In Toast 12.01 the 1.55GB HD mkv file took about 8 hrs to encode and burn. The DVD played normal on both the computer and my DVD player. In Toast 12.1 the same file took 25 minutes to encode and multiplex, then 3 minutes to burn. This copy stutters or jumps throughout( as if skipping frames) on both the computer and my DVD player. The soundtrack is normal. I have a Mac Mini Late 2012, 2.6 Ghz i7 processor with 16 Gb of memory running OSX 10.10.2. As I said before the fans ramp up in Toast 12.1 but not in 12.01. HandBrake is the only other app I have that does this due to its being written to take advantage of the hyper-threading capability. I hope this is enough info. I am reverting back to version 12.01

    I should say it is Toast 12.1 that I was referring to. Toast 12.01 cruised along like Toast 11. Toast 12.1 when burning caused the fans to go on which never happened before, at least to my knowledge. I am currently burning a 1.55GB HD mkv file in version 12.01. When it is done I will note the time elapsed and then upgrade to version 12.1 and burn the same file and report the time involved and the condition of the playback on my DVD player.

    Toast 11 was great, only the speed of encoding seemed lacking, at least on my Mac system. Toast 12's encoding speed seemed to increase manyfold. I figured Roxio was taking advantage of the hyper-threading capabilities, however all Dvd's burnt stutter. I went back to Toast 11 and burnt the same movie and it ran smoothly. This occurs on all video files mkv, mp4, avi's and mov's. Something is definitely amiss in the new version of Toast.

    Toast 12 Stalls During Burn

    On several occasions Toast 12 will stall or completely stop during the burn. It never is at the same spot. I have converted mkv files to mp4 with HandBrake to circumvent this problem and also I will abort the burn, reboot the computer then drop the file back in Toast to succeed. My burner is connected by Firewire but I don't think that really contributes to the problem.
