After trying to convert MP4 video footage to vob to enable me to play it on my stand alone dvd player, the size of the film (only 9 mins long) dropped from 1.3gb to less than .04 gb, 75 % reduction in size, and the quality was very, very poor.The video was shot using my DJI Phantom 3 Advanced drone in 1080p, so quality was very good,
If I burn it in MP4, and then watch it via my computer, the quality is spot on, any help please for a very frustrated old fart.To render the video footage I used Adobe Premiere Elements 14.

DVD-video is only 720x480/576 pixels....far from 1920x1080 pixels.
I take on board what you are saying, but I am still baffled, how come vob on normal purchased DVD is so clear, and yet when I make one is is not
Without seeing samples of the video, or least still images, nobody can tell if what you're seeing is normal or the result of an error.
Do you have a blue Ray player, or a media player box connected to your TV
Put the original file on a USB memory stick and plug that into the USB port of the player
DVD resolution is 1/4 that of your HD source , no way to maintain source quality when transferring aka trans Coding to DVD format
Maybe what you did could have been done better, with changes in settings used, but no way to make it look like the source does
Can I say a big thanks to you all on here for taking the the and effort to reply to my post.In all seriousness, you lot and restored my faith in humanity.I play guitar hobby only and I put tabs on a site to help others so to find people like you lot doing similar is very refreshing.
That said, my problem seems to be I have a drone that shoots in 1080p, and no way to put that onto a normal dvd that will play on other peoples machines unless they have blue ray.
My computer does have blue ray soi I could record in blue ray, so thats one avenue to try.
My reasons for the need to put good quality onto normal dvd, is not for personal gain. I bought this drone to enable me to film around peoples homes, add music and burn onto a dvd in return for a small donation to my chosen charity, "Help the Heroes", which here in the UK, is a charity to help former members of the armed forces.
I have tried the memory stick route jnto a USB port on my TV and the results are perfect, by using the MP4 format.
Not sure of the future of my plans now, I suppose its back to the drawing board.
I will try to shorten 2 clips of movies today and place them on here to enable you to see the difference in quality.
I have both 1080p and 4K video from several different DJI drones, including a semi-pro Inspire. I've done lots of things with the video, including making a DVD. If you have a short, untouched, original clip, if you upload it somewhere (Mediafire, Dropbox, etc.) I can download it, convert it to a DVD MPEG-2 file, and then upload it to Mediafire where you can retrieve it and compare it to whatever MPEG-2 file you've created.
