I use the Freemake Video Converter a lot. With it's 5 hour dvd capacity it is way out in front as the most desirable dvd burner.. This is, however, one nasty let-down: Sometimes, not always, but sometimes a movie burned to dvd, upon playback the picture is slightly degraded with fine Mosaic patterns and Pixilation. It is rare, but seems to attack fast moving images, for example, a fast Pan of the camera, or a shot of a train moving fast on camera. Instead of the natural blur, the picture is broken up into mosaics !
Are there any technical setting on the Freemake Video Converter that would remedy this problem, please?
I know the Accelerator setting MUST BE unticked in order to make smooth / unchoppy dvd's - I don't understand why Freemake insist on leaving this ticked when it always guarantees a lousy picture quality..., so ALWAYS UNTICK this setting.
Normal convertion to mp4; avi; mpeg2 etc, all behave perfectly. It is just the copy quality to dvd that is letting the side down!

You're simply putting too much video on the DVD. You an only put about 1 hour (8000+ kbps) on a single layer DVD at highest quality. At 2 hours (4000+ kbps) you will see a significantly degraded picture. At 5 hours (<2000 kbps) it's going to look like crap.
Thank you for writing, but you are wrong, you know. You can put 5 hours of very big files; 1gb ; 2gb and achieve excellent quality results but as I am finding, occasionally, a film or video has a very "busy" picture which pixilates on very fast movement!
It doesnt seem to matter how large the files are, so long as they do not exceed the 5 hour mark by 1 second, they will fit and play perfectly. I have proved this dozens of times over!
You don't seem to be writing about burning to disk, but DVD conversion. And saying you can get 5 hours of video onto a DVDR with decent quality means either your eyes are very bad or you have a very high threshold for crap.

Please tell me how I can change the "Bit-Rate" in preparing the film for burning to dvd? Normally, I do not need to convert the file, I can just load it straight onto the Freemake converter, whether it is a flv; avi; wmv; mp4 or mpeg2 and the act of selecting "DVD" button ( and Burn), does the rest.
Where will I find controls to alter the DVD parameters, please?
