I’ve been creating home video’s from our samsung camera’s software, cyberlink powerdirector, and after the rendering process is complete I am having a failure window pop up after/during the burning of the video to the dvd. I think the movie size is too big for the 4.7g dvd disk. How can I compress this file to fit onto the standard dvd to play in our home dvd player?
What is the movie’s file format? You can try to convert it to a different format, which would give you a smaller file.
Mpeg, is a common one, how ever some quality less is a possibility.
There’s also AVI, MP4, WAV. As well as others.
Depending on how long the movie is and what you want to watch said movie on, eg. DVD player, computer. As some formats are NOT supported on DVD players. However some of the newer DVD players are now compatible with a majority of media.
So in short AVI is the most common and it is compressed, the standard movies that are roughly 90mins long are compressed down to around 700mb. AVI is the one I would go for, but it is rarely playable in DVD’s. The choice is yours.
Good Luck ^_^
No problem to use this feature (NTFS system do it real/time, with no data/loss and , on a 2000MHz processor, no waste time for processing on decompressing data), but not necessary on modern computers. Hard disk is mostly used by multimedia files that cannot be compressed. Operating system files used by Windows XP can be compress using this feature, but you will got only 200-300 Mb.
It’s actually interesting
I think there is any easy way, you shoud try RZ DVD Creator, it can create standard home DVD, it can directly convert and burn any videos to DVD(DVD+R, DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD-DL, DVD+DL,
etc), such as avi to DVD, etc., it can cusomize the target DVD size.
I have used it, work well, easy to use, i like it.
You can download it from:
Hope it can help you.
That’s an interesting question!
If you want it playable in a DVD player, use DVDShrink.
