    Jerky Video Playback

    Hi, sorry I haven't been paying attention to these forums for the past several months. Since your Blu-ray player accepts so many different video formats, just burn the source video using the DVD-Rom (UDF) setting in the Toast Data window. That should turn out the same as if you played the video from the USB flash drive and save you lots of time as well. I recall discussing the jerky video problem back when I was paying attention but don't remember exactly how I resolved it. It may have to do with the frame rate of the source videos is not 29.97 or 30 frames per second.

    Toast 6 And Old Age

    Have you ever backed up your Mac's hard drive? If so, you can copy Toast from it to replace the damaged one.

    Acceptable Mydvd Filetypes?

    It's the Dolby Digital audio that's the issue. H.264 video used in editing doesn't have ac-3 audio. The video file you sent to Compressor should work, rather than the one after using Compressor.

    Used To Use Roxio Videowave, Now Considering Toast

    Toast is not a video editing application. What you are looking for is Final Cut Pro. There also may be an Adobe video editing application for Macs called Premiere. Not certain if it is still available.

    Burning Blu Ray Problem With Unsupported File

    Is it possible you are saving the exported movie to an external hard drive that is not formatted to HFS+ ? The old PC-formatted drives have a 1 GB file size limit.

    Crashes During Encoding Every Time

    I haven't used ffmpeg. You might see if there is advice about this at the Mac forum at videohelp.com
  7. Sorry it isn't working. You've probably tried everything already. Only advice I have is to be sure to plug in the USB device after first launching the application. Also, try a different USB port.

    Toast 14 With Mac Photo App

    Toast has no direct access to the new Photos app library at this time. What settings are you using and what are you using to play the slide show disc? In the Data window there is a Photo Disc option. It does not change the original photos. Some DVD players can play photos from a data disc if the resolution isn't too high. Check your player's manual for info.. If you are making what is called a DVD slide show in the Toast Video window the quality is dramatically lowered to meet the 640x480 DVD resolution spec. Best thing to do is put photos on thumb drive and insert that in HDTVs USB input.

    Burning Mp3 Problems: Order Of Tracks

    You should burn MP3 discs with iTunes which I believe adds digits to the front of the file names to keep your desired order. Toast keeps the file names as is. Since MP3 discs are ISO9660 format there is no way to avoid alphanumeric ordering.

    Choppy Video

    Maybe I can figure out why if you post the full specs that Toast describes when you add the video to Toast.

    Burning Blu Ray Problem With Unsupported File

    There should be no problem if you exported the video from iMovie using its Share command.

    Crashes During Encoding Every Time

    Toast may crash if it encounters a problem with a source video such as dropped frames. Shouldn't happen with different videos. I had Toast repeatedly crash at a certain point from different files with a kern protection failure. Turned out to be defective RAM on my Mac. You can use Rember to test Mac. It can be found at macupdate.com. If you have something that can create a DVD-spec MPEG2 video then Toast will multiplex rather than encode it when authoring the DVD. You may need to turn on never re-encode in the custom encoder settings window.

    Install Problem

    Disconnect everything connected to your Mac except the mouse/keyboard and then try launching Toast.
