Re: Slideshows?

Quality might be ok with upscaling but you will lose detail.
Most recent digital photos have resolution better than 2K.
DVD supports max 720x576 which is less than one quarter of 2K.

That resolution was fine 10 years ago but not anymore. Of course it still is max for DVD.

Re: Slideshows?

PhotoDVD does just that with various settings, including background music.
Downside is resolution, only DVD which is not good enough these days.

Re: title menu page TITLE

Doing as was suggested gives just what you want.

One DVD with up to 99 weddings, each wedding can have up to 99 chapters; parts / videos from same wedding.
That is the way DVDs are built, even professional ones.

Re: Conversion to MPEG2 file for authoring DVD-Video - problem

They will be fine when connected with proper program that finds correct keyframes when connecting them. Just copying them together will make problems.

Re: Conversion to MPEG2 file for authoring DVD-Video - problem

vob files are mpg2 files, just a bit more strict rules on them. You can change .vob to .mpg and they will play just fine.

Re: XP support

Huge problem with XP is that there is so many new codecs and formats that require newer OS. Real bully here is Microsoft, they forced changes to OS code that prevents applications from working in XP and Win10. Of course some developers make their applications compatible with any OS but that requires...

Re: Dual layer video length

There is no exact amount on how much can be put on one DVD.
Some movies take much less bits and still produce very good quality while some use huge amount. Total playing time and best quality is still an estimate.
Only one who can say about quality being good is you, check converted result.

Just use 1pass with best quality. Most likely you will not notice the difference.

Re: Nero Platinum Suite 2020

Should be just fine.
If not, then Nero programmers are making a mess.
Personally that is bloatware and I stay away from their products.

Re: Conversion Problem Line Of Duty S1

Original BR and DVD discs are copy protected.
You can't convert them without removing copy protection.
Removing it is prohibited in EU so it requires separate software.

Re: Fastest DVD conversion software?

Converting to DVD is slow process.
The specifications of your source files; screen size, amount of audio channels etc, can make a huge difference on conversion speed.
You are getting actually quite good results using a laptop!
