Re: Please help this newbie: fails with "running low on memory"

I'm trying to duplicate your problem, sadly I don't have files in mp4 - only in mkv format.
Same settings as yours.

Re: Please help this newbie: fails with "running low on memory"

How much virtual memory do you have?
It seems to be complaining about that.
Still, even if you have huge amount of virtual memory available it might be that CxHD3 can't use it, maybe due being 32bit app.

Re: Video will not convert

It might be protected file, can you get details from MPC when file is loaded?
Shift+F10 should open dialog where those details are.

Re: Some Films Don't Work Why????

Can you get codec info from all files here?
You have so many files going on those logs that it is a mess to check.

Re: How to burn without losing original quality?

PAL is for most european countries and NTSC for North American.
Setting for automatic is trying to recognize format that you use.
Most PAL systems can play NTSC, but most NTSC systems can not play PAL.

So there is no way to burn for all countries, to be sure you need two versions.

Re: How to burn without losing original quality?

What do you mean with "not original quality" ?
DVD can have max 720x576 resolution on PAL.

HD is usually at least 1280x720 so there is no way to convert/burn to DVD with that quality.
BR is required for HD and better quality. And of course different burner and converter.

Re: Menu Want to Return to Page 1 Instead of 2

This is more a limit on DVD as DVD standard player has no memory to store positions or other wanted behavior. That is also why there is no random play on DVD.

You need to use menu that has chapter menu page. Not all menus have it.

Re: title menu page TITLE

DVD format does not allow anything else.
DVD can have tracks and tracks can have chapters.
Main menu is all tracks, each track can have submenu with chapters and selections for subtitles etc.

Re: title menu page TITLE

There will always be re-encoding when doing DVD as DVD has very strict and limited version of mpeg2.
Quality loss is usually not even visible.

Re: Please Reset - "Disabled Computer"

Are you wiping that VM after use and reinstalling from scratch or do you have a clean backup that you restore?
If first one, then that is clear reason for this problem as Windows generates new UID for it when installing, and to VSO that looks like a new computer each time. Hope they can fix this.

Re: CXD output playback on the PS3

You can play any burned disc on those, just make sure that your disc is good quality.
Some restrictions on some players might prevent from playing PAL or NTSC.
Cinavia is on audio track and does not prevent playing but will show warning and might mute sound.

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.
