Divx to DVD Burning Takes Ages...........!


dcholme

Question

With EMC 8 I used to convert from Divx format first then burn to DVD. Since upgrading to EMC 9 Deluxe I've been using the Divx to DVD's option and it seems to take hours - a lot longer for the whole process than EMC 8 (whilst really slowing down my newish PC at the same time).

 

Am I doing something wrong or is it just the way things are? Any ideas \ information gratefully received.

Thanks guys.

 

Gary - understand the logic of that but it didn't seem to take as long with the previous version?

 

I have another program that converts formats; I could try that but not sure what format to output to for onward burning to DVD (you're dealing with a novice here!!). It had options such as WMV \ AVI etc - which should I choose?

 

Thanks again

The DVD standard is MPEG 2 video with AC3 or PCM audio. Some players can handle MPEG audio, but it is not part of the standard.

 

As long as you encode to MPEG 2 with higher than 3Mbps bitrate, MyDVD 9 should be able to use the file without any re-encoding.

You're taking a highly compressed DivX file, uncompressing it and then recompressing it using MPEG 2. Yes, that does take awhile. Personally, I don't use my computer while it's working on video. All kinds of odd things can happen. Even with a dual core machine.

When I had to replace one of my dvd players, I purchased one that plays divx dvd's. It was not expensive and saves me hours of time. I can copy divx files to a cd or lots of them to a dvd and it only takes minutes to burn them to a disc. Just an idea the next time you're in the market for a player.
