Dvd Playback Problems


trying my best
 Share

Question

Using Roxio Creator 2009, My DVD section and video from Sony HDR-SR11. The computer is windows vista, service pack 2, 4GB ram, 32 bit and 2.40 GHz quad processor. The dvd project plays and looks great on the computer. No problems burning to a DVD +R, 4.7GB. The project is only about 10 munites long. But, when I play the DVD on the DVD/VCR player, the DVD stutters and freezes. I did burn the DVD in the "fit to disc mode". Should I change this to "HD"? Am I buring an HD DVD or is the video being converted to SD. If it is SD, is there a way to burn a HD DVD to play in a HD DVD player to get the most out of my HD camcorder? Any help would be appreciated.

You've a few different things there

 

For a 10 minute video clip, you don't need 'fit to disc' (in general that is used for anything over an hour long). Use the best quality setting instead

 

Stuttering - try closing down any background apps while rendering and also reduce burn speed (generally I never go over 4x myself). Also the media can be a problem - use Verbatim or Taiyo Yuden/JVC and avoid cheap brands

 

HD - if you mean AVCHD you need a Blu-Ray player for that as the DVDs won't play on a standerd set-top box

Okay. I'll try changing the quality to best quality. The media is memorex. I'll have to check the burn speed. For the HD player, I can use the PS3. I assume that My DVD in Roxio is creating a SD DVD and not an HD DVD. Is this correct?

OK - Memorex is fairly close to bottom of the heap in terms of quality so try to avoid it

 

HD or AVCHD is basically Blu-Ray format on a DVD and is only playable on a Blu-Ray player. I'm not sure tho if the PS can handle (I know a set top box can, but not having a PS around, I can't confirm that)

Okay. Before I try this again, I'm going to pick up different media. I know for a fact that the PS3 is a Blu-Ray player. So, if I wanted to get the most out of the high def. camcorder, is Roxio converting to standard definition? I don't see an option to make the DVD as a high def in Roxio. I have Creator 2009. The Sony handycam does come with software that allows you to create HD or SD DVDs. However, the editing portion is poor and you cannot create a dvd label or dvd menue like you can in Roxio. So, I was trying to use Roxio and not the Sony software. Is Roxio converting to SD?

When you open MyDVD, go to File (top menu), new project and post what you see there. Unless you chose AVCHD or blu-ray, then the video is converted to standard definition. You need a blu-ray burner and blu-ray discs to burn and play blu-ray. You use a standard burner and a good quality DVD to burn a AVCHD disc. You need a blu-ray player to play the AVCHD discs.

 

I'm almost positive that PS3 will play an AVCHD disc. The limitation is that you can put around 40 minutes of video on a disc. There is a lot of information in High Definition videos.

 

You don't mention what computer you have but if it is marginal to reasonable, then the encoding will go very slowly. Don't be surprised to wait 24 hours for the 40 minutes to complete. That is the reason I have my current computer (and a spare).

 

EDIT: I just checked, depending on your PS3 firmware, that should play AVCHD discs.

Thanks. When I open My DVD, I get the options of DVD project, DVD no menus project, VCD project, SVCD project, DVD+VR project, AVCHD project, and AVCHD no menus project. I guess this is where I would choose the HD or standard DVD. My thoughts are to create both a SD and a HD disc. I'm sure as time goes on, all players will eventually become HD and this way I will get the most out of the HD camcorder. The computer info is vists sp 2, 4GB ram, 32 bit and 2.40 GHz quad processor. If I understand correctly, Roxio then has the option to create HD. I can create HD using my standard burner but blu-ray is totally different. I would then need a HD player to play the HD DVD.
