error?

Question

If you still have the VIDO_TS folder then place it on the desktop and access it with the Media Browser to extract the MPEG prior to have Toast do the additional compression. I've never considered doing transcoding after using the Fit-to-DVD compression. That may be where the file problem occurred.

 

If you don't have or can't recreate the VIDEO_TS folder then try opening the Toast extracted MPEG in MPEG Streamclip. Choose Fix Time code breaks in Streamclip and then choose Convert to MPEG to save a new MPEG file. Use that saved MPEG in Toast instead.

 

Well, I finally got Toast 8 to convert the PAL DVD to NTSC. The only problem is, when I play the dvd in a dvd player on a television, the picture isn't smooth. It's like watching a slide show. The weird thing is, when I play the converted dvd on my computer, it plays just fine.

Please describe the steps you followed.

 

First, I copied the Pal DVD to my hard drive as a TS file. Then I compressed and saved it as a disc image using toast 8. I then mounted the DVD disc image onto the desk top. I then opened toast 8 and chose DVD-video. From toasts media browser, I chose the dvd disc image and copied it to toast. Toast would automatically convert the files to MPEG. I then clicked the red record/copy button. Toast then asked me if I wanted to reencode the DVD to ntsc format. I clicked the reencode to ntsc format. Toast would then start to reencode the Pal dvd to ntsc. After about a minute of reencoding the Pal dvd, toast would stop and send me a error -208 message. Thanks for helping. I appreciate it.
