    I have 13 video files I want to burn to a dvd. I want to make a simple menu just so I can choose what video i wanna watch

    I tried toast but it gave me error result code 9011 after it encoded. I tried iDVD but it doesnt even see the files. They were mpeg files.

    So I converted them to vob files and tried again. Toast gave me result code 9011 and iDVD can't even see the video files.

    wtf is up, whats another program to burn a dvd?

    Find a serial for QT Pro and use that to resave them as .mov to see if that solves it.

    Are these videos recorded from a digital camera? I have the same problem with the videos taken by my old camera.

    I think I had to eventually d/l the full-version of Flip4Mac, with serial, convert everything in QT and compile it in iMovie before burning it with Toast.

    The reason it was such a PITA is because the audio codec is just retarded.

    did you make sure to check the "audio" checkbox in the export options?
    I've done that a few times :o

    It also supports WMP codecs. The audio never works on my Mac when I want to edit my digital camera vids. I had to convert them after installing F4M.

    It sounds to me like you are trying to put too much shit on the dvd...once you encode a video file for the burning process, it makes it MUCH larger...for example, i used toast and under the video tab, dragged a movie that was a 700MB avi file - it took forever to get through the encoding process then I think I got that same error - it wouldnt fit.

    I also tried to take 4 episodes of a show that were 1 hour each and put them on one DVD with a menu allowing me to select which one I wanted to watch and it would only allow me to put 2 with menus on one disc.

    I dont know how big your 13 videos are, but chances are it's way too much.

    if you lower the bitrate of the video, you might be able to squeeze a little bit more on there...but on average, you can put about 2/2.5 hours worth of video on a dvd...

    so yeah, putting 4 hours of video on a dvd...you're gonna have a really shitty quality video...

    I highly doubt that, each video file is about 100MB. Once I converted them all to .mov, it burned great and worked great, just didn't have any sound, but that's because I converted it to .mov the wrong way.

    uhhh....what kind of file is it? divx/xvid?
    i'm not sure off the top of my head, but does vlc player tell you what codecs are being used to play the file?

    could check there?
