Toast Hd On Mac

Question

thanks in advance for any assistance here. I appreciate it.

 

I just bought Toast 10 Pro Titanium.

 

I burned my first HD video ( a copy of a Blu Ray disk ) on a double layer dvd disk.

I copied the Blu ray disk with eyeTVHD and encoded the film to h.264

 

It took almost all day. But now I find out my Mac won't play the finished disk.

The DLdvd starts off kinda bumpy on my PS3 player, but eventually plays the disk.

 

I know Mac won't play Blu-Ray but I thought I had encoded the movie to h.264 so it would play on my Macbook Pro.

When the copied disk loads - it has two folders BDMV and Certificate. It won't auto start.

 

Does Toast 10 not make HD movies that play on a Mac ?

To make a HD DVD the Toast user guide says to choose the Blu Ray video project.

 

I'm really bummed if Toast 10 can only make a HD DVD that can only be played on a BluRay player or PS3.

 

Is there another way to go about it so that a double layer HD dvd disk can play on a Mac or PC computer ?

I can burn Blu-ray disks using eyeTvHD and encoded to h.264 on blank dvd disks and DL dvd's on toast 9

but they are not HD.

 

Do I have to import my h.264 movie into iMovie and then use Toast to burn a HD dvd, and how do I do that

if the only toast 10 option is to burn HD as a BluRay video project?

 

thanks again for any help

I want to be able to make HD videos from BluRay disks and copy them to DLdvds that play on both a Mac and PC.

What I don't understand about your post is why you aren't simply playing the h.264 video created by the EyeTV HD device. If you need it to be on a disc rather than the hard drive, burn it as a data disc. It won't be playable on a Blu-ray player or PS3, but it is in the format that plays on Macs (presuming your MacBook Pro's graphics card is powerful enough to play the HD video without stuttering).

 

Also, you may have heard that Roxio just released Toast 11. If you bought Toast 10 as a download from Roxio you might want to contact them about exchanging it for Toast 11. Roxio has a 30-day refund policy for their online software sales so you can use that if necessary. I've read that Toast 11 has a player that can play Blu-ray discs created by Toast. I haven't had time to check that out as yet.

Hello Tsantee,

Nice to hear from you again. You have helped me out once before.

 

Yes I want to be able to send the HD video on a DLdvd to a friend who has a PC computer. I also think it should work on my Mac.

I don't understand why the resulting HD Toast burn does not play on a Mac or PC, and why Toast has to burn it solely as a BluRay disk ?

Is that the only way to get HD on a DL-dvd - to burn it so it is only recognized by BluRay devices ?

 

Sorry, after re-reading your sage advice a bit more carefully, I see that you are telling me to burn it as a data disk.

I assume that burning it as a data disk will burn the file in a 1:1 ratio and not minimize the resolution and maintain its HD resolution.

My friend has Real Player on his PC - would it play this Toasted HD DLdvd in HD resolution ?

 

And you are saying Toast 11 has a player that will play Toasted BluRay disks? Does such a player exist for PCs too?

 

I bought Toast 10 from Amazon. I wonder if I have a recourse through them ? I will contact them.

 

 

thank you again

Pete

You actually need two different versions. Burn the H.264 as a data disc for anyone to play on a computer. Create a Blu-ray video disc for anyone to play on a Blu-ray player.

 

I just did a test and the new "Roxio Video Player" that's part of Toast 11 can play Toast-created Blu-ray video. I don't believe it will play commercial Blu-ray video discs, however. Because I don't have a Blu-ray drive what I did for the test is create a BD disc image. I mounted it. The Roxio Video Player (which is different from the video player in Toast 10) started playing the video as soon as I selected the mounted disc image.

Thank you oh exalted Toastee Grandee.

 

I will do the data disk thingee, and Amazon is letting me return Toast 10.

 

all is good

 

Just to be sure - the data disk and the new Toast Video Player will play the disk or BD disc image in full HD resolution correct ?

Yes, it plays the full resolution. See you in the Toast 11 forum soon.
