I captured a TV recording using Windows Movie Maker (on Vista), made a project file to “top” and “tail” the recording, added a fade-in and fade-out and saved the project. I used Windows DVD Maker (also on Vista) to make a DVD with conventional VOB files, but it won’t play through any of my TV DVD players, even though it plays via the computer. I have examined a shop-bought pre-recorded DVD and see that this also uses VOB file format. This plays OK so why won’t my homemade recording?
As a reply to Keith Ball: I’ve been reading alot lately on the different types of DVDs that can be used for recording. DVD-R is sometimes considered more reliable than DVD-RW when it come to compatiblitly with stand-alone DVD players. And a DVD+R is considered by some to be better than DVD-R in that same regards.
Here’s what I think is a great link for massive information on DVDs: http://dvddemystified.com/dvdfaq.html

I have been uploading vids on youtube with the VOB file. Youtube says that it can’t upload VOB files - But it can, Only if the DVD has been recorded lowest quality like EP. I really don’t know what has happened but I can no longer upload vids this is proberly my fault though. On the DVD files > Video TS > then there used to be a file whicg looked like a blue square which was a “camera film picture” on the VOB file (VTS_01 1) I cannot get the original file back. nothing seems to be uploading it does not work with windows live photo gallery (which is one of recomended programmes to use) I may have deleted it by accident, I don’t know and I would like it back. I downloaded a file fixer - to fix all of my files - but did not work on my DVD drive. Please help.
