Burning Video DVDs
« on: April 06, 2011, 12:15:48 PM »
I think I've probably asked this in here before, but I'm trying it again and it seems like every time I do it...it's the first time.

I downloaded a two disc DVD of a David Gilmour show. I have two directories of VOB files now. I want them on two DVDs.

I converted them all to divx files, but maybe they need to be something else.

Can someone tell me what I need to do to take the VOB files and get them onto DVDs?

Software I have:
DVD Decrypter
Roxio (that I have to upgrade to burn media DVDs)
Nero Lite (that I have to upgrade to burn media DVDs)

Software I'm willing to buy: none

That's good stuff...gracias. Burned a DVD but the DVD player wouldn't read it. I think it's because I converted the VOB files t DivX. I think I need to just make them mpeg4s. Unless DVD players can read VOB files. Off to Google muthafucka.

Teh Googles told me that DVD players can read VOB files, which makes sense. So I'm going to make an iso of the VOB directory, burn it, and hope it all works. If it does, I can sure remember a two step process...and quit being intimidated by it.

as far as I can remember don't convert them to a video file for the pc.. avi, mpeg anything like that.  Most of the programs I used to use I just aimed it to the .vob viles and ran that.  Changing to avi or something of hte sort is only downgrading quality and an unnecessary step

Jesus...this is why I wish I did this more often.

When I tried to burn the VOB files straight...it said the disk wasn't big enough, even though the file size would fit on the disk. Said something about not enough sectors.

So I used DVD Shrink, which made video_ts and audio_ts folders, which I then used folder2iso to make an iso. Then burned the iso. DVD player won't read it.

I hate feeling like a fucking moron.

If you have the ISO then it's just DVD Decrypter : Mode -> ISO -> Write

No fucks were wasted in the preceding message.

I've been using imgburn for years.  It'll burn to cd, single-layer dvd, dual-layer dvd, and blu-ray.  It's easy, and it's free.

Imgburn isn't limited to iso.  It can burn from *_ts or BDMV folders, if that's your thing.

So is there a better program out now to burn mp4 video to DVD?  I'm need something simple and free.
