I burnt a dvd with MultiAVCHD using the following guide: http://adubvideo.net/how-to/convert-home-videos-avchd-bluray
Everything worked fine, but the DVD won't play on a normal DVD player. It says it cannot recodgnize the disc. My computer can read the disc, and it shows file structure as following: (i used the motion menu as in the guide)
Folder BDMV (empty folder)
(i attached the log so you can read if that can help with this thread)
When i open the DVD with PowerDVD (version 8) - It opens up a menu showing 1st episode, cannot click on anything, after 25 seconds, it starts episode 1. I click next a few times, episode 1 is done, then i have another menu for episode 2, 25 seconds wait, then it starts.... etc.
What did i do wrong?
I am trying to create a DVD using multiple videos, in this example they are .MKV files. So I followed the guide above, the only thing i checked in MultiAVCHD that is not in the guide is in Settings > x264 > Checked 64bit --- since i'm on XP 64bit.
After MultiAVCHD was done, i burned the content of the folder (basically the folders\files now on the dvd disc) with IMGburn w\ UDF 2.50 on a DVD+R DL disc.
I also attached a picture of what the menu looks like. Normally it should show all the episodes and you can choose from etc, as i did in MultiAVCHD.. However it is not the case as you can see!

You shouldn't be starting duplicate threads.Pull! Bang! Darn!
Now this is me not understanding MultiAVCHD + burning...
but if you are ok with me continuing this on the other thread, i am fine with that too!
You are putting a Blu-Ray file structure on a DVD. No set top DVD player will read it, though a Blu-Ray player will. If you want your disk to be read on a DVD player, you need to select DVD as the output format in MultiAVCHD, which will require transcoding of your MKV's.
Nah, I thought so too, but look at the log. Output is standard DVD-Video.
I think the problem was the VIDEO_TS folder is not at the root of the disc, plus it was burned as UDF 2.50. So what the OP has is a UDF 2.50 data disc. Not gonna play on a DVD standalone player. As to whether the multiAVCHD output is okay, that's another question. One way to find out: burn it again correctly.Pull! Bang! Darn!
ok, i think i see where this is going. I'm gonna try a few things and hopefully it will work
i followed the proper guide this time, however it is giving me 4 different folders in the [DVD] folder (for each episode), and they each have a AUDIO_TS and VIDEO_TS folder.
How am i suppose to burn this?
Here is an attached picture of my settings...
I doubt this setting > "Stricter AVCHD folder format" -- it was checked from the start... should this be unchecked?
update: i tried with that setting unchecked and it creates a dvd folder with the same structure... all eps in different folders.
