Video Won't Fit On Disc?


levlvl

Question

I just bought Toast 8 and am a complete novice. I bought it to burn avi video files onto DVD discs for viewing on my TV using a standard DVD player. I have no idea what all the various video file formats mean (avi, divx, mpg, mov, etc.) or when and if I need to convert from one to the other (I wouldn't mind finding out more about this if anyone can direct me to an appropriate place to find out more about all these video formats). However, my question is with regard to a video_ts folder (yet another format?) which I tried to burn onto a DVD-R disc (standard 4.7 GB) using Toast. After I dragged the folder onto the Toast window, I got the message that the disc did not have enough space for the file. So I then tried my old Popcorn 2 and voila, no problem - I have the video on disc. Popcorn does indicate that it does auto-compressing which I assume means that it shrinks the file to fit onto the disc. So what am I doing wrong with the more high-powered program, Toast Titanium 8 since it is not burning the folder onto the disc? I'm using an intel iMac with OS 10.4.11.

Did you choose the DVD-video from VIDEO_TS folder setting in the Toast Video window? That should work pretty much the same as Popcorn where it will automatically activate the Fit-to-DVD compression when needed.

Hi Tsantee,

 

Thanks again for pointing me in the direction of purchasing Toast which you did about a week ago. My version of Toast (8.0.3) has the following options under "Video" on the left hand side of the Toast window: Video CD, Super Video CD, DVD-Video, Video_TS Folder and DivX Disc. I chose DVD-Video which I believe was my error and should have chosen Video_TS Folder instead since that is what I was dragging over onto the Toast window. That option appears to have an auto-compression listed underneath. Does this sound right?

That's right.
