mp4 to DVD converter
« on: May 23, 2007, 01:50:18 PM »

Hi,

I'm just wondering if anyone has a suggestion for a free piece of software that would convert the mp4 video downloads to something like mpg or avi that I could burn onto a DVD. I use Nero 6 "Express Vision"? to burn DVD's and it doesn't recognize the mp4 file format.

Have you up to date with your updates? I have no problems backing them up to DVD.

DP,
What happened to the SW from AoA - DVD Creator that you mentioned in a similar post from April? Your reply about using it for burning a dvd from a download from LL(I'm assuming the LR tutorial)
"Worked peachy. Haven't tried it in my dvd player yet but works fine on the PC.
Roxio choked completely." I have not tried it yet, but it supposedly would work with .mov files(the LR tutorial) and .mp4 files(LLVJ#16)in burning DVD's. Is this not the case?

I was using the demo of that.  In the meantime this piece of free software was mentioned.  If it works I much prefer free.  If it doesn't work I'll likely buy the other stuff.  (It worked fine.)

So I take it that the AoA sw worked(by virtue of the April post) and that the freewear of the later posts didn't work? Is this correct? If so, isn't this a perfect example of "you get what you pay for"?

Yep.  I'm going to try it again on all the defaults.  (I wanted a DL disk.)  If that doesn't work than I think a sale will be made.

I have to eat a bit of crow here    , I tried DvdFlick on the demonstation file sample file
and it worked fine, thinking that the LLV vol 16 files would be the same I recommended it's use. I have now downloaded vol16 and I get the same audio error as DP.
I'm not giving up just yet I have left a bug report on the dvdflick forum and have split 4 meg off the intro file to test. Sorry for the erroneous report but I will let you know if I get a response.
To Chris - have the file formats changed between the sample and the latest LLJ?
Also the mp4 seem to be at 18 FPS is that a standard setting?

Keith:

I haven't found a single free app (yet) that:

1) Converts source .mov or .mp4 content to .mp2
2) Creates the directory structure, directory and binary content files required by the DVD format

Of course there *are * free utilities that will do each individual step, in particular I found the file format conversion part of the process to be extremely variable in quality.  AoA seems to do a good job on both, and of course, is very easy to use.

Yes, you are correct. Based on user feedback, I have changed settings several times since we started providing download video. I have settled so far ...  subject to improvement at any time    ... on MP4 files at 1100/1200kbs, 640 x 360, 24fps

You also can try to use VideoCharge for it.
