What To Do If Video_Ts Folder Is Too Large To Burn Onto Dvd?

Question

Hi, I've used Toast 10 several times to burn a DVD from a VIDEO_TS folder. But when I drag the folder into Video > VIDEO_TS Folders, the file is too large to burn; it's 7.68 GB. And the summary says "Video: All (2 movies and 2 extras, 2:56)."

 

But there's only one movie, and it's about an hour and 40 minutes. So I think I might be dragging unneeded files into Toast.

 

Here's what the VIDEO_TS Folder looks like:

 

VIDEO_TS.BUP

VIDEO_TS.IFO

VIDEO_TS.VOB

VTS_01_0.BUP

VTS_01_0.IFO

VTS_01_0.VOB

VTS_01_1.VOB

VTS_02_0.BUP

VTS_02_0.IFO

VTS_02_0.VOB

VTS_02_1.VOB

VTS_03_0.BUP

VTS_03_0.IFO

VTS_03_0.VOB

VTS_03_1.VOB

VTS_03_2.VOB

VTS_03_3.VOB

VTS_03_4.VOB

VTS_03_5.VOB

VTS_03_6.VOB

VTS_04_0.BUP

VTS_04_0.IFO

VTS_04_0.VOB

VTS_04_1.VOB

VTS_04_2.VOB

 

Do I need to import only some of those files to Toast in order to burn the DVD? If so, which ones? Thanks for your help!

There are four title sets in that VIDEO_TS folder and the third one is the longest so it is your movie. If you choose DVD video as the format in the Toast Video window and drag in the VIDEO_TS folder each title will appear in the Toast window. Delete the ones you don't want.

 

You're now making a new DVD and you can create your own menu description. I suggest choosing Save as Disc Image. When that is finished select the resulting .toast file using the Image File setting in the Toast Copy window. Put a check mark next to fit-to-DVD compression and burn your movie.

Thank you! That's a very helpful reply.

 

Two follow-up questions.

 

How could you tell just by looking at the file names that the third title set was the longest?

 

The first file set is 00:19; the second is 20:44; the third is 1:46:43; and the fourth is 48:16. If the third is the movie, what are the other three? I'm wondering if they're extras, and if so, how to burn those also.

 

Thanks again!

The easiest way to see the videos is to open DVD Player on your Mac and use its Open command to open the VIDEO_TS folder. Then you can use the Title section of the Go menu to select each title to play.

A-ha. Getting closer to understanding this.

 

By using Go > Title, I see that the first video is the opening credits, the third is the film, and the second and fourth are extras. Will the extras automatically burn onto the DVD, or do I need to change settings to include them?

 

Also, I have the .toast file on my desktop, but I don't seen an Image File setting, or a compression option in the DVD-Video window. (I do see a compression option if I toggle to VIDEO_TS Folders, but still no Image File setting.) I'm using version 10.0.9 of Toast, in case that information helps.

You need to switch away from the Toast Video window to the Toast Copy window to burn the .toast image file. There you'll see an Image File setting. It's window will give you the option to select the .toast file or you can just drag it in from the Finder. You also should see Fit-to-DVD in the Options.

 

If you wanted everything from the original VIDEO_TS folder on a single-layer disc then you should select VIDEO_TS folders in the Video window, add the VIDEO_TS folder, put a check mark in the Fit-to-DVD box in the Options panel and click the burn button. However, this will result in a lower-quality video because of the greater compression needed to fit everything on the disc. It makes more sense to me to just buy some DL discs and burn it without the extra compression when you want the entire contents.
