Help!

Question

Right, I bought popcorn and installed it and kept getting the unexpected quitting whilst converting, luckily thanks to a search on this forum I discovered this was due to an xvid codec I installed with quicktime {I'm currently using a mac}

 

So fast forward to yesterday, I finally managed to get through the convert process and the file burnt to disc, I then tried to play said disc in the dvd player and I just had a blank screen but full audio!!

 

Can anyone help me, I must be doing something wrong somewhere!!

Is the DVD video also black when the disc is played on the Mac? Please describe some more details about the kind of video and the settings you used in Popcorn.

Sorry for taking so long...

yes it's still just the sound...

 

It was an avi which did convert into ts files... Settings...I didn't play with them so just used the standard settings,

Thanks for your help

I'm guessing you used the DVD-video setting in the DVD section of Popcorn. When you added the AVI what did Popcorn describe as its video and audio specs?

 

I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image from the File menu instead of clicking the burn button while doing this testing. When the disc image is complete select it with the Image File setting in Popcorn and click Mount (if it doesn't automatically mount). The mounted disc image should open DVD Player where you can preview it.

 

Do a test with a different video file to see if the issue is just with the one.
