video file locked up convertstodvd

This is the first time I have had a video file lock up the program. Had to use task manager to end program. Tried it '3' times, rebooting desktop PC once after '2nd try. I already downloaded a different file and it worked just fine. Just wondering if anyone can see why this file 'failed', so that ma...

“Good result (Auto Long project), however

Using a DVD-9 as target size may improve video.” I see this from time to time. Assuming it means using DVD+r Dual layer discs. Knowing ‘these’ are much more expensive, is the ‘video’ quality going to be ‘that’ much better? Noticeable, even? I currently use Verbatim DVD-r discs. Always check both box...

Re: Subtitle not in sync

Thanks for replying, no I did not edit the file. FYI, the subtitle file was included in the over all mkv file. Did not 'find' or use a different subtitle file, which I do from time to time when a video file doesn't come with one. Just thought it was 'odd' that the file played just fine on my desktop...

Subtitle not in sync

I'm going to assume that the issue is with the video file and 'not' convertxtodvd, but I thought I would post just in case. The video file and subtitle "is" in sync when I play them on my desktop computer, but not after conversion and when I play the finished DVD in my standalone DVD player. Windows...

Re: Different TV episodes Playback issues

Sorry to bring up an 'old' issue for me, but I solved my issue. It's all in the setup. In the past, when adding more 'episodes' I always click on the top ''left' (+) plus sign. This way, it converted 'two' episodes at the same time, therefore the process was faster. Apparently, sometimes, the issue ...

Re: Video will not convert

Tried the 'demo' version, it converted a few minutes, but still didn't work with convertxtodvd. So, I lost a little money, it happens. Thanks everybody. Stay Safe Just an update - I decided to try an old program - DVD Flick - And it worked. So I'm happy now. So I have to assume there must be somethi...

Re: Video will not convert

Appears that it is "NOT" protected, per the properties / details file. Have a look at the attached capture.

Re: Video will not convert

Actually, I already did this, that is, I downloaded a youtube video of this movie, Ike, and converted it without issue. However, I didn't like the 'quality' so that's when I decided to 'buy' a copy online. The 'quality' that I downloaded from this online "buy" was much better so I wanted to put it o...

Video will not convert

Bought a movie online. Downloaded same. Went to convert to put it on a DVD and got a message saying it couldn't be done. Tried to convert file using Any Video Converter, same result, couldn't convert. The video file played just fine using my MPC-HC VIDEO Player. Log attached and image capture. Thank...

Re: Buying a new computer

Thanks - I get the 'ram', have bought more over time, so that's easy to understand. That said, the CPU, with AMD and Intel, I haven't seen anything that tells me that an i5 or i7 equals an AMD? And the thing about a graphics card, well I have no idea how to go about that issue. Maybe I should assume...

Buying a new computer

During this “sale” season, and thinking of ConvertXtoDVD, what would be the main things to focus on. What I mean is that, on average, it takes my current PC about 4 hours to convert a 10 GB mkv file. I think I saw someone say they can convert a file in 15 minutes. I’m going to assume that is a very ...

Re: Conversion canceled by user

Actually, some of these files have a "lot" of subtitles, but I always remove all except English. Some times there are "two" English and I keep both because sometimes the 'second' English file is for "foreign parts". In these video files, some episodes had only 'one' English file and some had up to 9...

Conversion canceled by user

I'm going to assume that the issue is with the video file that I was working with, although I have never had this issue before and I don't understand why. I ran this same file twice and got the message that the conversion was canceled by user. Since I did no such thing, I ran my usual "anti" stuff, ...

Re: Different TV episodes Playback issues

Thanks for replying. I use the DVD+RW's because they can be reused and since this is just for TV shows, I don't keep them as I might a movie. Being used RW's for maybe 15 years or longer without issue. As they wear out I buy a new batch, some are Sony and some are Verbatim. This is a 'new' problem. ...

Re: Different TV episodes Playback issues

Just wondering if you have any suggestions for this issue. The attached log file is for a "single" TV series where this issue ocurred. This had 'not' happened for me before. Episodes 1 thru 5 recorded on one DVD+RW played back just fine. However, episodes 6 thru 10 have this issue. thanks in advance...

Re: Different TV episodes Playback issues

Actually it has happen a lot of times. I just kind of ignored it in the past. But I thought I would post this time. It is routine for me to accumlate several TV shows and then make one DVD-RW. The most likely reason for is that I wait to get an episode version that has subtitles. Thanks for replying.

Different TV episodes Playback issues

When I convert 4, 5 or 6 ‘different’ TV shows (episodes) in one process and burn them to a single DVD-RW, an issue arises. During playback, after the ‘third’ episode finishes, I usually press the ‘next’ key on my remote control, to skip the credits and jump to the start of the ‘next’ episode. Instea...

Re: Lifetime key no-longer works

This worked for me: If you click 'Help/Tools" and then select enter license key, and do so, that should work. Also, if you click help/tools and click on 'About" it will show if its licensed or trial.

That said, Maggie once had to take control of my PC to fix this issue.

Hope this works.
