Disc Output Format

Question

I have VHS to DVD 3 Plus. I captured my vhs to my pc and then burned a dvd using VHS to DVD. I then tested dvd on my pc and also on standard dvd player, and video played okay. I then tested it on Blu-Ray player from Samsung, and got message "Video format of this disc does not meet required video output format of this product". Contacted Samsung and asked what the problem is and they said the player doesn't support the output format of the disc. He said I should create disc in MP4. He also said MP4 type format will play on any dvd player, either standard or Blu-Ray. Is this true?

 

My question is there any settings in VHS to DVD that can be changed to MP4? If not is there a way to do this some other way?

 

Also just for my own info what is the difference between MP4 and MPEG4 or are they one and the same?

 

Thanks

 

Joe

That is the sort of answer you get from a "Tech" who doesn't have a clue what he is talking about :lol:

 

The fact that it plays EVERYWHERE but one Player narrows the problem down.

 

But my first guess is low quality media... Short answer there is that if it doesn't say, Verbatim (Singapore) or Taiyo Yuden (JVC) on the package - Leave it in the Store!

 

RW's are harder to read than R's and the more you pack onto one disc (1 hour for 4.7 GB) the harder they become to read.

 

MP4 & MPEG4 are the same but if you go that route, they will likely be unreadable on DVD Players ;)

I used Memorex DVD+R as the media output. I do have a Magnavox combo unit for dubbing VHS to DVD. I also have Verbatim blanks, so I'll try it that way. The video is about 1 & 1/2 hours long, and I created it in SP format. Any other suggestions that might help would be appreciated.

 

Thanks for your help

Memorex media is the bottom of the barrel when it come to good media quality. Suggest you take Jim's advice regarding the type of blank media to use.

Capture is set so there is nothing there we can adjust!

 

Output quality depends on the Output you choose...

 

If you choose DVD then you have two choices, HQ or Auto Fit.

 

Auto Fit makes very Coarse changes and frankly should never be used.

 

If you choose some other file type format, you can tickle the settings by changing them in Advanced Settings which appears when you pick something other than DVD.

 

Don't try to outsmart it either!

 

Some think you can make a smaller file then load that file and make a DVD from it. Won't Work! DVD quality is based on TIME.
