Hello,

I just compressed a 60 min movie with sorenson squeeze (version 3.5 oem) using the custom DVD settings. I burnt the DVD and it looks great on one PC but stutters on a new PC laptop. How can I prevent this? I want to make DVDs that play well on any modern computer with a DVD player. Thanks for any help you can offer!

My settings were:
MPEG-2 Video with a data rate of 7800
PCM audio with a data rate or 1536
Total Data Rate: 9336
Stream Type: Elementry

What is probably causing the "stutter stutter" is the high bit rate. For set top player playback of writable DVDs it is generally recommended to keep the maximum bit rate of the MPEG-2 video at 7Mb/s, if the audio is compressed to Dolby Digital (AC3) at 192Kb/s. If you have to use uncompressed PCM, the maximum video bit rate shouldn't exceed 5.5Mb/s.

The slimline type DVD-ROM drives used in laptops can be even more problematic than set top players; some don't play writable DVDs at all and many have serious problems reading DVD-R media. It may help to lower the maximum bit rate even further, to 5Mb/s plus AC3 audio. If you can't use compressed audio, you would have to use a maximum of 3.5Mb/s which will almost certainly prove to be too low for satisfactory results.

Thanks for the helpful advice.
Do DVD-RWs work better in laptops? Are they more compatible across the board?

Ranked by readability DVD-R and DVD+R are about equal, followed by DVD+RW, while DVD-RW is the least readable of the writable formats.
