I created an mov. file of a Final Cut project and it burned fine in iDVD and played on my Mac and a separate DVD player just fine. It will not play sound or proper resolution on a PC. As far as the project goes, the only technical changes that might be effecting it are that I changed the footage to upper field dominance and adjusted the sound from 48kHz to 44.1 kHz to adjust to an MP3 skipping because the music is at 44.1kHz. This didn't effect any of the other sound or the play back when I created the Mac DVD or played it back on the TV set DVD player. Looking for advice on how to burn this project to a DVD that works for everything! Of course, my boss is asking for it ASAP. Thank you!
If your DVD plays on a hardware DVD player, then you have achieved a correctly authored and burned DVD-R disc. If you have issues playing your DVD on a PC, then I would look at the applications being used to play the DVD on the PC.
Windows Media Player is a poor excuse for DVD player software. You may have better luck using VLC player or a software DVD player from Roxio.
