Fitting files on DVD (Compressor, etc)?
on Mar 5, 2012 at 10:20:58 pm

I have a project I'm trying to get out to a client. Usually, a just put the full-size files in iDVD and, if it's over 4.5gb, it fits everything. However, this project is a bit larger than others, so it's compressing very large files (10-20gb), and there are 8 videos... so watching the DVD to check for issues, I can see it's messing up... some of the videos stick or freeze, etc. So... How do I fix this?

If I put the files into compressor, how do I set it to compress ALL 8 videos so that they'll fit on a dvd with a basic menu?

What is the duration of all 8 movies, and what is the content of them? i.e., instructional not much movement stuff or fast action etc?

It's a birthday party and some performances that were done at the party.

So, one most of the videos are dancing, either on the part of professionals or the people at the party. They range from 3 minutes to a little under 15.

I've watched all of the videos, and thus far, one lags a little in a few places, and one just completely freezes at the end (though the audio plays properly).

Sorry didn't see your reply until now.

I need to know the total running time of all the videos in order to help you.
