High Quality



2 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

When putting a avi movie in the MyDVD it says that the quallity of the film isn't high quality. The avi is only 600mb. and i am putting it on a 4.7g dvd. Why is it does it say that the dvd is almost full? thanks


Your avi file is in a highly compressed container (divx or xvid file) and in order to make it dvd compliant, it will have to be uncompressed and re-encoded. Depending on your system, this can take some time to do.

You have to forget original size when converting for DVD player format. Basically, one hour movie = 1 DVD


.avi files are highly compressed. While they are only 600 odd MB, when you convert that to the vob format for a set-top player, it will be a LOT larger: so large that it will be over the 4.3 GB of a standard DVD


However, due to a bit of trickery, EMC is able to compress the output to fit on a standard DVD and the price is a loss in quality, but usually that's not very noticable when viewed on a standard TV screen
