" Which format should a video be in to burn it to DVD for playback in a home DVD player connected to a TV? "
Actually none of the above. The DVD you want to play on your stock DVD player is a "standard" and it's easier to use tools like Ulead.com's, Sony Vegas and such to create a proper DVD.
I will never discuss the MANUAL creation of the files and directories of a stock DVD. It's far too painful in this small space.
Use the right tools. You don't have them.
-> In closing, you have to share the link to said video if you are having problems with it so we can see what encoding it was.
More ignorance here - please bear with me!
OK, so downloaded videos come in MPEG, Real media, Windows Media, Quick Time, AVI, ASF etc. Which format should a video be in to burn it to DVD for playback in a home DVD player connected to a TV?
I use Boilsoft?s splitter and joiner and they also have several converters available to convert video files from one type to another but I don?t know which format is best for DVD burning.
Any help would be appreciated!
