Video File Too Big For Dvd...solutions?



2 answers to this question

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to burn a 6.5 Gig MPEG-2 file onto a DVD so it can be watched on a DVD player. Obviously, this is too big to fit, but is there some way that Toast can lower the encoding quality so that it will fit?


You can do this in Toast 7 but not Toast 6. Here's how it's done it Toast 7:

Set up everything the way you want in the Toast Video window and choose Save as Disc Image from the file menu. When that is finished, choose the disc image using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. With the Fit-to-DVD option checked you'll be asked if you want to compress this to fit a single-layer disc when you click the burn button.


You also could use Popcorn to to compress a disc image file that you saved as above in Toast 6.
