Your video can be used as-is. MP2 audio isn't allowed. Read 'What Is Blu-ray', the link for which is found at the upper left of this page:
Just as you have to author for DVD, so do you have to author for Blu-ray. You use MultiAVCHD, tsMuxer, or something else:
Well, you could give a try to the freeware "DVDtoBD Express" ,
Also, please notice that Blu-Ray has some restrictions for standard-definition MPEG-2 video:
--- resolution = only 720x480 or 720x576
--- frame rate = 29.97 or 25 FPS
--- must have been encoded as *interlaced*
MP2 audio is not Blu-Ray~compliant, therefore it will have to be converted to AC3 or DTS, minimum.
el: Have you tried it? Is it worth adding to our tools list.
It seems to work on my test dvd. Added DVDtoBD Express.

Is there a special reason you need the videos authored to a disc? Why not just rip the videos to a hard drive?
If backups are your deal, why not just save the disc image to a hard drive?
vhs to dvd to blu-ray just doesn't make much sense to me.
@ Baldrick: actually I had downloaded it 3 months ago , BUT I simply forgot to test it
Anyway, yes it does work as advertised , and thanks for adding it to the tool list
Cool, just tried out prog, it appears to work.
If so it can be used to backup a 2 layer dvd to one bd disc.....
Wonder if it can be configured to put multiple dvds on on bd?
I tried the program on a simple single layer DVD. It did convert it to BR file format and it preserved the simple menu. In my standalone I noticed that the time counter did not work.
What is the point of this program? Why convert a DVD to BR file format?
I tried it also with deep space nine retail dual layer dvd.
It worked and played back fine on my standalone bluray player, main menu, episode menu's, etc.
Retained all the subs, audio tracks, etc.
I tested it on a BD-RE.
But I am missing the point as to putting one dual layer (7.95gb) dvd to a single layer Bluray (23.3gb) disc ?
That is crazy wasted space!!!!!
Unless it can combine several dvd's to one SL Bluray it seem's to be kind of a waste of time and I don't see the point....
Or am I missing something ?
You could put it on DVD D/L instead of a BD,but why?
Another thing I noticed, it does not seem to upconvert from the BD as it does from a DVD.
It would be nice to be able to put 3 dvd's onto one BD-R.
And the time counter worked fine on my standalone using this.
Although every time I tried to open it on my PC with TMT only the main menu would work, going to one of the sub menu's it would just lock up and not even show any links.
I tried a movie only dvd title.
To answer the question, yes it could come in handy putting a dual layer on one bd single layer
if one uses the cheaper bd media....I can get them for the same price as a dual layer dvd blank.
But I do agree it would be better if it were able to put multiple dvds on one bd.
Without that the program will have limited appeal....still good to have for a special project.
OK, I admit it, I myself had not thought about the *point* of such software...
In theory at least, it would be nice to store several DVD titles in a single BD-R, however it seems the remuxer supports only one VIDEO_TS input at a time
Or maybe, who knows, the point of this BD-Remuxer was to show
there was no point in including Standard-Definition video in the Blu-Ray specs
Does the full version support several dvds to one bd? It looks very expensive though.

This is interesting. I too have several dvd series I'd like on a BD. A few of them have rather complicated menu's that take ages to get it right manually. It would be great to have those on a BD for each dvd program itself.
I also played with DVDtoBD Express and it indeed seems to work for one dvd to one BD only.
Question: Can you tell me how DVDRemake Pro deals with results that exceed the dvd-dl size? I don't know the program.
DVDRemake Pro doesn't really care how big the project file size gets. The tool within the program is called "Merge DVD's", and will merge up to 4 separate DVD projects, and making a rudimentary root menu that allows you to select which DVD you'd like to play (this root menu can be customized using a separate authoring program using instructions on DvdRemake's website). It will warn you that the final project size exceeds either a single-layer or dual-layer DVD capacity, but it will still write the final project anyway, regardless the final size. Commonly used to combine 2 single-layer DVD's to a dual layer, although I often used to combine 2 DVD's and then shrink it down to a single layer afterwards using either DVD Shrink or DVD Rebuilder.
So basically, if you merge 3 dual layer DVD's with Dvd Remake Pro, it will output a nice big 18-20Gb (or whatever) final project for you that, according to Nice2BHi, DVDtoBD Express will happily convert to a BluRay for you. Kinda cool, I guess.
This is good news rickydavao
I will definitely take a look into this. Thanks!

I've been thinking about the DVDReMake Pro solution as well. One thing I'm curious about is if it's possible to combine more than just 4 DVDs? I think (but might be wrong?) DVD Fab does it with 2, so maybe it's possible then to have 8 (or even more) DVDs on a Blu-Ray?
Also, as DVDReMake is no longer in production, is there any other softwares around that will do a similar job?
MultiAVCHD should be able to do this for you. If it doesn't crash in the middle of processing.
I found a way of doing it with Vob2Mpeg, AVStoDVD and DVDtoBD Express. I was attempting to do this without reprocessing the dvds, so my limit was the number of dvds that would fit onto my target of a single layer blu ray. http://club.myce.com/f32/guide-combining-dvd-videos-into-blu-ray-331859/
AVStoDVD is much more stable. But it is not in the same category of software. It is designed to make dvd video.
There really isn't another free program with all the possible uses as MultiAVCHD. And its menu creation for blu ray is really pretty good. I just have had bad luck using MultiAVCHD, with unexplained crashes or hangs in processing.
Is it worth converting with MKVmerge GUI first, or will these programs do the job for me just as well (I tried MultiAVCHD before, but can't remember if it does it?)?
Also, will any of these programs remember the title of extras when converted? I used an MKV converter before that gave me the title of the extras, but don't know which one it was.
i am chilling out in a pub patio, looking for a silver lining in the night of a new moon day. Started thinking on a developing rocket science that leads to the center of the Earth rather than a mission to the Mars. Or, he can simply remux to.m2ts without encoding and have several titles on to BD.
