Question about Roxio Easy CD & DVD Burning

1 Answer

DVD recording freezes up

After my .mpg files go thru the encode process, all is fine until the actual recording process comes up and it freezes up. Every once in a while it will work OK, but not the last 10 attempts. No error message...just stops working. Any ideas? I have Windows XP and using Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6. Thanks!

Freezing like this is usually a sign of lack of memory.
Ensure all other programs are shut down.
Burn fewer files at a time

Basically how do I record VHS to DVD?


You need VHS video and audio output. You need some computer card with video/audio input, and with converter to MPEG format (MPG, AVI: xvid, divx...). It is better to have encoder chip (MPEG) on that card (sound synchronization), for best recording (batter than use software encoding with processor power). Hauppauge video card are good for that purpose. When you have MPEG file, you can use your recorder to write to DVD. DVD has lot of format option, and this will be another problem...

Standalone DVD player with DivX why does the VBR encoded Audio lag the Video


DivX or XVid encoded MP4 Video codec or AVI will almost always have either the Dolby Digital AC3 Codec or the MP3 encoded audio codec see the following links; Fraunhofer MP3 Decoder or LAME MP3 Encoder

This fixed audio lag can sometimes be caused by VBR audio encoded files and starts part way through the playback as opposed to CBR audio some standalone DVD players will exhibit sound lag in this case. It is a good idea to re-encode the VBR to CBR audio this usually solves the problem.

I suggest that you convert/encode all your DivX AVI files into CBR audio to avoid any such errors; all commercial DVD Video Audio is encoded in CBR (constant bitrate) which also reduces the audio filesize unless its encoded in LCPM which will give a much larger audio component.

Check the audio bitrate type open the AVI in GSpot the example below shows an AC3 audio already in CBR so can be left alone and should work fine.

MANUAL CONVERSION PROCESS

This audio MP3 conversion process it a bit of a long way around I know, but it does work!
  • Open video in VirtualDubMod or VirtualDubMP3 (if there is an index error this can sometimes fix it for you.

  • Ignore the error warning that the video contains VBR audio.
  • Extract audio as MP3 ("demux" in VirutaldubMod or save as WAV, then rename to MP3 in VirtualdubMP3).
  • Convert audio to WAV with CDex
  • Open original video in VirtualDub,choose "direct stream copy" for video and "WAV audio" with "Full audio processing" with CBR MP3 compression (and interleaving with appropriate delay if out of sync) for audio.
SEMI-AUTOMATED CONVERSION PROCESS

You could also use several other easier methods including AVIDemux which uses VirtualDubMod or scan in the DVD-Video using TMPEnc v4.0 Xpress and applying a time lead OR lag however this does not solve a progressive lag *** but can be used to re-author a fixed audio lag error in milliseconds you can use either Windows Media Player Classic or KVM Player in real-time to find this lag or lead error and then adjust accordingly

If you can't work AVIDemux then AVIrecomp will be your best solution this is a bit more user friendly

NOTE> always keep a Backup copy of the AVI before you make any drastic changes as you could make the file unplayable the above process will only work on FIXED AUDIO LAG AVI files.

Progressive Audio Lag (starts in synch and runs fast or slow throughout the AVI is almost impossible to remove with re-encoding the AVI using the above methods.

*** Feel free to comment if you know of a foolproof way other than performing a full re-encode from the MPG2 or DVD VOB file.

Editing videos taken from canon dc100 camcorder


I see here that . . .

"The DC100 takes 3-inch Mini DVD-R/RW discs, and like most of its competitors, can fit about 20 minutes of best-quality video on one. If you choose to initialize a disc for playing in a standalone player, the camcorder writes standard VOB files; if you initialize for future editability, it records in the VRO format. Windows Media Player can play the latter if you rename the file with an MPG extension, however the aspect-ratio information gets lost--that info is encoded into a separate file--so 16:9 video will get squashed into 4:3. "

Cnet Reviews.

Your videos are recorded in the common DVD format called MP2.
They have the extention .MPG so if you copy the video files to your computer, and change the end of the filename from VOB, or VRO to an MPG then your software can recognize it as the MP2 format that it is.

There is a Windows XP program, called Windows Movie Maker, it can open your video files and provide you with most of the video editing tools.

Cheers.

[I am assuming that the recorded disc was not made using the DVD recorder]. It's most likely that the video portion of the file is encoded in a format that is not supported by the DVD recorder. The player only supports DivX, JPEG, and MP3 formats. So try transferring the file on the disc to a computer and encoding in a supported format. You can use free online services such as http://media-convert.com/ or http://www.zamzar.com/ to encode media files into different formats.

Problem uploading to PC


I have the same camera, and found out that the VRO file is just MPEG2. So copy the VRO file onto your computer from your disc. Once its on your harddrive, you can right click on it and go to properties. Re-name your file from VRO to MPG, making sure that you still have the original VRO file in case you need it for other programs. Once I change it to MPG file name, I can use media player to play it and I have a DVD movie maker where i can edit and record to DVD.
