How To Burn Dvd From Mp4?

As Jim says, we have to make some assumptions to answer your question.

 

If we assume you want to make a playable DVD movie disc, then you can simply open MyDVD, add your .MP4 file, and author that. Keep in mind that even if your .MP4 file is Hi-Def, a DVD movie disc is Standard Definition, and your video will be downsampled accordingly.

 

If it's Hi-Def and you want to maintain that while using a DVD disc, then instead of selecting a DVD project in MyDVD, select an AVCHD project, which allows you to fit about 40 minutes of HD video onto a DVD disc, but it can only be played on a Blu-Ray player.

 

If you only want to back up your file, just open Creator Classic, or select "Data Disc" from the Creator home menu, and add your file and burn it. Most players will NOT play this disc.

 

So, let us know a little more about what you have and what you want the end result to be.

Great, but we still don't know anything new.

 

You received a DVD with an MP4 file on it? Is that what you currently have? If so, then it sounds like you have a data DVD. Is this a commercial product that has a copyright associated with it?

 

We need the details of this DVD you have, and how you use(d) it.

It is a DVD that is not copyrighted. I purchased the right to view the teaching on the internet, have access to the .MP4 file and access to a .MP3 file from a particular ministry. My goal is to be able to create a DVD (data file) to share with others. The ministry gave me permission to do that and to share it with others. Thank you again for all of your help.

So, if all you're after is a data DVD of the .MP4 and .MP3 files, the easiest thing is to have them both in a folder on your hard drive, then open Creator Classic, in Creator 2012, add those two files to your project, and burn them to a DVD. Label as appropriate, and you're done.

 

As a Data DVD, they'll need to use a computer to play it, not a DVD player. (There's a possibility that some Blu-ray players may let them navigate to the files and play them, but don't count on that.)

 

Hopefully that gives you what you want?

 

Let us know!

I put the video teachings in a file on the hard drive and I then went to Roxio Creator 2012 and went to Create DVD and I found the video (image) on my hard drive. I highlighted it and tried to burn it. I thought that I had burned it, but could not hear the voice of the speakers-just an image of them with a background of falling snow and music, but could not hear the speakers. Thanks again for all of your help.

Create DVD is not what I suggested you should do. I suggested using Creator Classic, which you can access either through Start -> Creator 2012 -> Applications -> Creator Classic, or from the Home menu, Data/Copy, Burn Data Disc Advanced.

 

So please tell us, how did you watch the .MP4 file you have when you first got it. Did you watch it on your computer? And if so, how did you play it? What program? If not on your computer, what did you use?

Thank you again for all of your help. I was able to make two DVDs from two of the .mp4 video files. Great!! On the third .mp4 video file I kept getting an error message stating Illegal request (05/72/03). I did some searching regarding the error message, but didn't come up with anything helpful. Thanks again.

I apologize for not answering the questions. I watched these three .mp4 videos on the internet using windows media player. I am still able to watch the videos on the computer, but was wanting to share them on a DVD which was more accessible for reaching people. Thanks again.

Does that error occur when you're writing the file to DVD? Or when you're playing it back? How large are these .MP4 files?

 

And once again, how did you write these to disc? Are you using Creator Classic, or are you using "Create DVD"? Please let us know the details of what you're doing, because otherwise, we're guessing without knowing, which gets very frustrating.

Thanks for all of your help. The error occurred when I was writing the file to the DVD. The only file that had the error message was the smallest file (408 mb). After your information was posted questioning whether error occurred while writing or playing the disc, I tried playing the disc and it had no error message on the disc and it had written the file to the DVD correctly.

 

With regards your question, I was writing the file to discs and I used Burn Data Disc Advanced and then I burned them.

 

Sorry, that I made it so complicated. Thanks for your help.

Now, just to throw another wrinkle in what you're doing, if there's room on the disc, there's no reason you can't put more than one of your .MP4 files on each disc. I don't know how large each of your files is, but you indicate the 4th one is "only" 408MB. You've got over 4GB of room on a DVD disc.
