How much video can one fit on a DVD

  Night Ryder 20:48 30 Jun 2004

I have a number of video clips I wish to capture and put on a DVD disk. I have all the necessary tools to create a disk that will play on a domestic DVD player(I have made many of these in the past). I have one particular clip of a video I recorded a while ago on holiday which is three hours long. I could work out the data rate and compress this file to fit a DVD but this would make a data disk which could only be played on the PC DVD-rom. Does anyone know if it is possible to squeeze three hours of video onto a 4.7gig DVD and have it work in a Domestic DVD player or is this always going to be limited to two hours. If not my only other option will be to split the video in two and put it on two DVD disks.

It all depends what bitrate you encode to Mpeg2 with, if your trying to fit 3 hours of video onto your DVD you are going to have to reduce the bitrate you encode with.The lower the bitrate, the more the quality suffers.
|I use TMPGenc and it allows you to fit 3 hours of video onto a single DVD, although the quality does suffer a bit.
