I'm figuring out how Id burn an mpeg video file to a DVD disk that I made with Pinacle Studio the video file is 3.4 gigs, I want to play it back on TV. I have Nero to hand any tips??

I use Nero version 6 to burn mgps to DVD.

Just select "Make your own DVD Video" and follow the prompts.

Just now downloaded DVD Flick and am now in the process of burning a DVD from the same mpeg file that I have already burnt using Nero.

So far everything is working fine. I am now "Encoding Video" running at 36min at the moment.

Will post again when the process has finished, successful or not.

How do you get DVD Flick to work how do I add the file to the project?

There must be an issue with Nero I encoded the file with Super C encoder works fine with out a glitch but what is stopping it???

This file took 1 hour 37 minutes to process using DVD Flick.

The same file using Nero 6 took 36 minutes 57 seconds to burn to DVD.

No contest.

DVD Flick is coming off.

I will continue to use Nero.

What version of Nero do you have?

I don't think there is an issue. I have Nero version

If you haven't got this version you need to update it.

You need to download Package 1 and Package 2 at least.

How did you do that with DVD Flick?

I have Nero 8.

Rob could'nt read the error message Import your file to Flick go to project settings click on burn and tick create Iso image accept then clcik on create dvd it will only make a disc image that takes burning to dvd out of the equation if it still throws up the error message post it . PJ Nero 6 possibly does not have to re encode and author which takes the time as far as actual burning goes flick uses imgburn which is as fast and probably better than Nero .Nevertheless I posted it as an alternative not a contest its really a matter of what works for you.

Sorry RobTheOrganGuru, I don't have DVD Flick on my computer anymore. But from what I remember, I just clicked on "Add Titles" and selected the mpeg file I wanted, and went on from there.
