Recommended Posts

help me please--i just recorded a1 hr 35 min movies using easy vhs to dvd, the file size on my hard drive is 5.59g and the dics capacity is 4.7 how do i reduce the file size so it will fit on the disc.



File size is not important when it comes to video work. Think in terms of time of the video. A standard 4.7GB DVD can only hold 60 minutes of video at best (HQ) quality. Any longer and the video has to be compressed to fit on the DVD but with a resulting loss of quality.

there are 3 options;


Select one of the other quality settings when burning the DVD such as SP.

Split the captured video into two parts and burn each part to a different DVD

Using myDVD "burn" the video to a image (iso) file instead of directly to a DVD. Then use "Burn Image to Disc) you can byrn the iso file to a DVD. This process transcodes the iso image file to fit on a DVD with better quality then using any of the quality settings in myDVD
