I have recently completed a project in FCP and exported to compressor and then taken this into Studio Pro. Created my disc and such burned it to DVD. When I watched it backed in DVD player it all seemed fine.
However handed a copy over to my brother to watch, he said that the DVD stops in random places saying it can not read from the DVD. And begins stuttering. Does anybody have any idea why this is happening and how to fix?
The internet is full with similar issues. Most of the time it is a media problem. Some DVD players prefer certain kind of discs. Some DVD player wouldn't play smoothly discs recorded faster than 4X. Check your disc on a third player, burn a different brand of disc not faster than 4X and see what happens.
Going to try and send the whole project back through compressor again and see if it was a problem at this point which causes the stuttering. I will also try burning at 4x speed as I think studio pro is automatically set to highest possible.
Its even more annoying as the DVD seems to work fine on random DVD players, both a really cheap DVD player and a high end one were fine but then a sony dvd player and x-box dvd player struggled.
I am not totally sure what the bitrate is as i am using compressors automatic settings for DVD compression. And in response to the make of DVD's I am using TDK's which I thought were fairly good.
