    get the version 0.5b1 not the newest then give my website a click. depending on what your simpsons episodes are formated in now, click either DIVX to DVD or SVCD to DVD if they are mpeg files

    good luck

  3. thanks, i downloaded sizzle 0.5b1 (older version not the source code version) and followed your steps. except i added an mpg. file only no extra audio or anything (seems its all contained in the file) but still crashed at about 10%.


    any help with this i want to make a dvd with a menu and multiple films ie a simpsons series on one dvd playable on an external dvd player, ive had no luck with sizzle it keeps crashing.

    thanks

    Hey Galactica, I was at yor site, which was very helpfull on ripping and copying to DvD to DvDr. but I notice you do not use Mac The Ripper. I did use your instructions all the way, but I did not use DvDBackup and instead I used Mac The Ripper. Is DvDBackup a better rippin/easy software to use? What do you say??Thanks

  7. well, thanks for the help so far gallactica ...i demuxed the mpg file and ended up with about 15 .mpg-2.m2v & .mpg-1.mp2 files for each .mpg i demuxed....?.... so, i tried to just change the title on the 1st one of each bunch to ohmikey 1.m2v & ohmikey 1.mp2 then i added them to there respective section in sizzle as per web site instructions.


    sizzle still crashed! so, what have i done wrong here, should i have so many file after the demux and should i convert the audio to 48 khz.

    also, is there a simpler way to this proceedure?

    thanks for any help you can offer

    trying to answer all ?;s here

    yes my site says dvdbackup, but MTR is newer and better, have not had time to update the website.

    mique. hmm still crashing? Is it the only app that crashes?
    I can only suggest to perhaps try chaning the audio for 1 of your files and testing. see if it doesnt crash

    if it does, perhaps you can use sizzle 0.1 [no menu';s but it does the trick]
    I use Mpeg2works for my avi to dvd. the output from there has always worked for me with sizzle.

    sorry if this isnt too helpful

    This may be the beginning and end of your problem. Without enough space for temp files Sizzle and other DVD authoring apps will crash. I like to have at least twice as much room as the size of the DVD, meaning at least 9 GB free on the hard drive before authoring.

  11. thanks, i thought so too, but im using an external hd with at least 90gb at the moment.

    i downloaded sizzle .05b2 again and tries to make a chaptered dvd again and for the first time actually managed to get a disk image at the end but the video_ts folder is unreadable by apple dvd.

    also now it seems it wont recognize the audio i tried to demux it and ended up with an mp2 file and sizzle wont recognize that as dvd compatible so following galacticas web site i converted the mpg. file to an ac3 audio file with ffmpegx but sizzle says that there is no audio on the file.

    jebus!
