  1. Hello,

    Apologies if this has been covered - I was not sure what to search for.


    I have several programmes I download as .ts files - these are DVB standard def MPEG transport streams and play fine with VLC. I then convert them to .mpeg files using MPEG Streamclip which removes the unnecessary data and remuxes to an MPEG2 programme stream. It is pretty quick and only take a few minutes for a 1 hour programme - there is no transcoding.


    The .mpeg file produced also plays fine in VLC (and looks as good as the .ts original)


    I then open Toast and drag the .mpeg file to the DVD window - it 'goes in' happily and I can adjust the still frame, in and out etc etc.


    If I then either try to burn a DVD Toast fails to produce a useable DVD - I can see it has burned something. If I save as a disc image, I get a tiny file - only about 800KB - the source file is over 2GB. In both cases I noticed that the Multiplexing is far too fast - it only take a couple of minutes for a 1 hour programme. It is then followed by 'Filling RAM Cache - 4%' which sits at 4% and 0% Completed for a few minutes before Toast declares it has finished.


    Anyone have any suggestions? - normally I love Toast and it has worked so well for me in the past. I think I have tried deleting preferences but it is possible I may have missed a file or two.


    By the way for anyone who wonders why not watch with VLC, I like to put programmes on DVD to post to older relatives who prefer to watch TV on a TV.


    Thanks for reading.
