I'm in the same situation as babylonslim, so I hope you'll excuse me if I enter the thread with my own request. Actually I own Toast 6 and I'm considering upgrading to Toast 9 or Popcorn. Essentially I need a software to author DVD video Disc from MPeg2 stream recorded from DVB-T free-on-air channel. The only feature that I really am interested in about Toast 9 is the Fit-to-DVD option in order to recompress automatically a stream that is slighter bigger to be mastered on a DVD support, but it seems that the Fit-to-DVD option is included in Popcorn too as well as the VIDEO-TS batch encoding feature that is really usefull. I really don't care about the other burning features of Toast 9. So, since Popcorn is half the price of Toast 9 or 10, at least here in Europe, I'm considering to buy the former. Any suggestion?
