Re: How to assign rules that make a dvdR play just like a common dvd???

That is not the standard way to play DVD. What are you using to play DVDs?
Standard is very simple, if you remove DVD from player or press STOP then you go to main menu or first title and start playback from there.

Re: How to assign rules that make a dvdR play just like a common dvd???

You should have them correct the way you have them. But do you have main menu?
From there you should be able to select which one to watch.
If there is no main menu then it is play from beginning, one after another. Stopping at any point forces back to first title.

Re: How to assign rules that make a dvdR play just like a common dvd???

This is not so simple. First your DVD player has settings on how to play/stop/continue etc. Then you can create DVD that has no menu, only one or multiple titles. Those can not be selected to play in any other way than continuous play. If you stop that in any stage then it goes to start again. You n...

Re: Authoring SD video without re-encoding

Yes, it is compliant. But it is split.
DVD video has different frames, some are needed for keeping sync etc.
You can't just copy paste together those split files. You need to create needed frames and sync data. That forces re-encoding.

Re: Authoring SD video without re-encoding

Video in DVD is in .vob files, each have 0.99Gb. So any movie is in several pieces.
How do you suppose authoring without re-encoding? Just copy/paste?

Re: Warning To Spammers

Spammers are active again, everyday a few are trying.
You may have noticed postings on old topics or simple "nice information, thank you" style.
I have checked everyone and last two weeks all of them were spammers from India IP address and are reported as spammers so I delete them.

Re: Conversion Failed

I've got another TV series with (I assume) hardcoded subtitles (no separate srt file) Without more details there can be no definite answer. You need to find out what kind of subtitles are those, and of course what type of video is in that file. If those subtitles are NOT in converted file then they...

Re: Activation & Downloads

All downloads are depending on source. Some can be downloaded easily, some require updates to software as source is updated etc.
In general it downloads videos and mp3s just fine.

Re: First DVD

It depends on many things:

what is your TV, 4:3 or 16:9?
what is your source file AR? It might be more than 16:9 so there will always be bars.

Re: Conversion Failed

Big problem currently is all the new codecs and different formats; AVI, MP4 and MKV are all containers that can contain different streams with different encoding. All these containers have rules on what can be in them to keep standard. Sadly many groups that are releasing files are using non-standar...

Re: Downloader no longer auto recognize / my NICs

Check that your NIC has manufacturer drivers; very often Windows update swaps Microsoft drivers as "they are newer" but in many cases those generic MS drivers do not have the functionality that is provided by manufacturer drivers.

Or simply wait for 64bit version of CxD. That should be able to handle all new codecs without problems.

Re: Convertxtodvd 7 "A problem occurred during the process" Help

That file looks to be the problem.
It has x265 encoding and CxToDVD seems to have problems with it.
Try other files that are not x265 encoded.

You have been provided with a solution, have you burned a dvd with that solution and it is not working on DVD player as it should?
Have you tried on more than one DVD player?

Re: Need an answer to Title Chapter problem

Right click on top of title gives you the option to add/merge files so yes, I did add/merge them, ending up with two titlesets, each having multiple chapters.
