Make Videowave Dvd That Doesn't Have A Menu (autoplay)


dvdmama13

Question

Is there a way to make a Video using Videowave, burn it to disk and have it autoplay? Like not make a menu pop up. Just go straight into playing the video? Also, do you know what the video time lengths are for the Best, Good, Medium & low quality of the video burn? Do DVD's only come in 4.7GB or is there bigger?

 

OK I know there are double layer 8.5 disks, but is that it? If I have a burner that will burn the double layer, do most DVD players play them? A 2 hour video looks horrible on a 4.7 low quality burn but hollywood movies are all over 2 hrs and the ones from Blockbuster do not look as bad as this 2 hr low quality burn. How do i make it look better?

Wow! A lot of questions. :) For the autoplay, I think it depends on what version of EMC you have. Burn your production to an ISO file, in DVD Builder, then use Disc Copier to burn to a DVD. Make sure Advanced options are showing, browse for the ISO file, select it, then select "Copy Single Movie", and it will autoplay when you put it in your set top DVD player.

 

One hour of video, at best quality, will fit on a standard 4.7GB DVD. You can figure double that time on an 8.5GB DL DVD. It is touch and go whether or not the DL disc will play on your set top player.

 

Don't confuse what the industry has for burning and what we, as consumers have. You are talking a difference of millions of dollars for equipment and software. The industry doesn't burn their DVD's with Roxio or Nero software. :huh:

When you burn your file to the 'image file' (.iso) instead of the burner as Bruce suggested, you can make two hours fit onto a 4.7 Gb DVD. Disk Copier will 'shrink' the video with some loss of quality, but not as bad as low quality.

 

Also, where the video came from can affect quality. Is the video from a DV Camcorder or an analog tape? Did you import it as DV AVI or MPEG2?
