why my AVI's are so big when I convert to a DVD ??
I have a TV series each episode is about 350mb, I use Nero “make your own DVD video” selection and it’s easy, converts AVI to DVD, sticks in menu’s etc but without drastically reducing the quality I can only fit 2 episodes onto a DVD disc.
That’s only 700mb! Am I missing the obvious? Is there a better way to do it?
Any help appreciated
All files (avi, wmv, mpg, etc.) will expand when converting to DVD format. You can only fit about 1 Gig of files on a DVD because they will expand to about 4.3 Gig with the DVD conversion. The only way to put more on a single disk is to reduce the quality as you have said (less bits per second) to get a smaller file.
I will just spread over a few discs rather than lose quality, just seemed strange.
Nero very impressive, makes it so easy
instead of reducing the quality save it as a volume to your computer, use dvdshrink and shrink it and done
how do I save as a volume?
then what I can fit more episodes on a DVD without losing quality?
so what do you mean save as a volume ?? DVD Shrink still needs them to be in a DVD format doesn’t it?
Nero converts avi files to ones that can be burnt to a DVD ?
yep, read my first thread
it makes um real big but
yep i have the same problem but i got dvd shrink and i cam seem to put the dvd files into the shrink my brother told me to recode them with nero recode so i got that program and i dont know what to recode them with
i bleveie u can do it by itunes if u have it. just place the movie onto the itunes by disc and below there should be a button where u can burn music or movies i hope that answers ur q.
