Hi, I have a movie file that's an MKV. Video is H264 - MPEG4 AVC (part 10) (avc1), 704x578, 25 fps. Audio is AC3. The file is 1.43 GB. When I drop it into Toast 12 in the DVD Video window, the program accepts it. But then when I try to burn a DVD, or write a disk image, the program crashes in short order. (Then it won't start up again, and I have to restart the Mac.)
I'm using Toast 12, OS X 10.10.3, an i5 iMac with 8 GB of RAM.
I have transcoded the file to an MP4 with H264 video, using HandBrake. Toast seems to be happy with that, but it's taking a long time.
However, that's not the cleanest procedure. Is there something I'm doing wrong in Toast? Is there a better workaround?
