No Video When Converting Wmm To Dvd

Question

I'm trying to burn a Window's Movie maker video to a DVD using Roxio Easy CD&DVD burning. I've got the menu page and audio, but no videos or pictures. I've tried it using WMM with both video and a picture slide show. Neither had any visual beyond the menu page. What am I doing wrong?!?!?!?

I have no idea what you are doing wrong since you have not described what you are doing.

 

In what format is the video from WMM?

I thought I had explained. But I'll try it again. I created Windows Movie Maker videos of home videos (and pictures) I wanted to convert to DVDs. One has a collection of videos, one has pictures in a slide show. Both are format .wmv. I used Roxio easy CD&DVD burning to take them from WMM to a DVD so that I can watch them on the DVD player. When I put the DVD (that I burned using Roxio) into the DVD player, I see the menu I created. But when I push play, I hear the audio but I don't see the video or the pictures. All I get is a black screen with audio.

 

I can watch them on my computer using Wondershare, but I don't want to use that because of the watermark.

 

What am I doing wrong and what else would you need to know???

What was your procedure for burning with the Roxio software?

Open Roxio easy CD&DVD burning.

Open My DVD Express.

Click "new movie"

Then I found the file (.wmv) in a folder on my computer

Highlight the file and click "add".

Then I changed the titles and placement on the menu

Click "Create Disc"

Click "Burn"

It showed the progress menu until it was done.

Click "Done"

I ejected the DVD

 

When I put the DVD into my DVD player, I get the menu and audio but no picture.

 

Strangely, when I used another .wmv file that came with my computer it worked. It was a generic video of a bear.

 

Does it make a difference what picture file types are in the Windows Movie Maker Project?

 

A side note: All of these videos work when I use Wondershare Converter software, but I have that darn watermark!

 

Help!

Does it Preview OK in MyDVD Express?

 

My first impression is that that it would not be the files but something in settings or even Media...

Do you have myDVD available in your program? If yes then use it since it is a much better program to use then myDVDExpress

 

Have you tried any of the other video formats available in WMM?

Hello Walt,

 

The OP has Easy CD & DVD Burning [this forum] with MyDVD Express. That means he doesn't have MyDVD.

 

Regards,

Brendon

We need the following information from you...

 

The Properties of Your WMV files.

 

The Properties of the Sample (Bear) WMV file you tried.

 

The Properties of some of the VOB files on the DVD Movie disc you created.

 

Brand & Type of media you are using.

 

"Properties" can be found using Windows Explorer on the file with a Right Click. Look under the Details Tab ;)

 

This is a sample of what I am after, from a DVD Movie:

(The VOB files will be in the VIDEO_TS folder)

 

What we are after are the frame size and the Total Bitrate:

That will really help us understand why this is not working for you!
