H.264 compression settings for download and burn to DVD
on Aug 9, 2006 at 8:50:44 pm

Some of our customers want to download our H.264 movies and transcode to m2v and burn onto DVD, for viewing on consumer DVD players. Our movies are shot in DV (720X480) and the customers have either cable or a good DSL connection.

In quicktime pro tests, the various pre-set H.264 settings looked good in quicktime player, but gave us weird hroizontial lines when converted to m2v and played on the DVD. We believe its some type of interlacing issue.

Can anyone suggest the right H.264 compression settings when it will be transcoded to m2v for dvd playback?

Thanks in advance

Did you deinterlace it? That could have done it. And if you use the Current settings for the Image size that shouldn't mess things up.

Seems like it should work, except for the long encoding times.

Quicktime pro does not ask me if I want interlaced or progressive - so I guess it was interlaced.

Would a 720X480 frame size cause playback problems?
