    [mp4] is in an unsupported format and cannot be imported

    Thanks for your input. I've played back the file in question in QT and it works ok. Here is the codec info from MediaInfo:

    What a cunch...
  3. I'm increasingly getting this error message when dragging mp4s into the recording area in order to burn a DVD5. The mp4s in question are YT downloads that I am burning to disk for a relative who has no internet access. Thanks for any tips?

    Problems Making Ntsc Disk

    Thanks for that. As an alternative work-through, what about using Handbrake (or similar) to change the frame rate of the 25fps clips to 29.97 prior to compiling with the 23.98 clips. would it then be possible to go 'full NTSC' on the whole contents with Toast 15?

    Problems Making Ntsc Disk

    Brilliant. I will give that a go. I may've confused you by my mentioning 1280x720 clips, for what I'm actually seeking to burn is a DVD not a BD. Does what you related still apply in this instance?

    Problems Making Ntsc Disk

    I have some videos I'd like to compile on a disk for a friend in the USA (so NTSC format) - they are 1280 x 720p and either 25fps or 23.98 fps but although I'm selecting NTSC in Preferences, when I come to the burning stage a box pops up to tell me I'm about to burn a mixed PAL/NTSC disk. I don't think this will work well for my friend Stateside. Ought I to 'pre-convert' some of the clips in order to avoid this, if so using what software for the best and with what settings? Thanks!

    Memory Issues When Burning Bd...

    Thanks, I've tried all these to no avail though.

    Memory Issues When Burning Bd...

    #2 #1 I have some HD footage that I wish to record to a blank BD disc (approx 23gb of material) but on attempting either to burn the stuff to disk directly or make a disk image first, the process is quickly interrupted by a system message: "Could not record the disc because there was not enough memory." and "Result Code = -108". I currently use a 21.5in (Late 2013) iMac with 8gb total RAM. Having just performed a very similar exercise with some other HD footage of mine without a hiccup I'm left wondering why this has cropped up now? Or how to remedy it? Here's a screenshot of Toast with the material assembled.

    Burning 23.98Fps Material To (Uk) Dvd

    Thanks for the interesting suggestions. OK, so were I to take the 23.976 fps file and run it thru iFFmpeg, resulting in an MPEG-2 file, how then would I record it to DVD in Toast?

    Jittery Video On Dvd

    Go into Preferences > Video and you'll see a PAL (25fps) or NTSC (29.97fps) option.

    Burning 23.98Fps Material To (Uk) Dvd

    Hi folks, I have an item that is 1280x720 but 23.98 fps. I wish to burn it to DVD but I'm unsure whether to select 25fps (PAL) or 29.97 (NTSC) in Toast Video Preferences. I will be playing back the resultant DVD on a UK DVD player/TV. I'd like to know from someone more knowledgable than me which is the preferable format to burn to? I should mention in passing that NTSC DVDs are playable in all UK DVD players - the signal is transcoded, what I'm concerned most about is avoiding a jerky playback picture. For instance, should I change the frame-rate, prior to mastering to DVD, using a program like Handbrake? Any hints or tips on this gratefully received!
