  1. DVD player and Blue-Ray player cannot play the DVD that was burned with Nero Express.
    The same DVD, however, plays fine by PC (Windows 10).

    Below is the info from the Nero log.

    Could anybody tell why DVD player and Blue-Ray player cannot play this DVD?

    Thanks all.


    Nero Version: 12.0.20.0

  3. I'm using Memorex DVD-R. I used default burn speed that Nero has suggested, which was 8x.

  6. Thank you! I wouldn't even think of looking into NTSC/PAL since I was burning from .VOB files, not from another video.... So I clicked on those .VOB files properties and they are 720x576.
    Google says that NTSC is 525 lines; PAL is 576 lines.
    So my files must be PAL, correct?
    I've never came across PAL before, now I will know what to look at.
    All those .VOB files are in VIDEO_TS folder. What's the best way to convert that folder to NTSC?

    You are somewhat misreading google, and not looking here ("what is...?" above).

    525 is ntsc's total lines in analog. When it is captured and converted to digital, only 486 (pro) or 480(consumer) lines are kept. But don't worry, those other lines are mainly sync/blanking/timing, which you don't need in digital (as it has other, better ways of keeping track of that data).
    625 is pal's total analog lines, 576 of which are kept in digital (whether pro or consumer).

    But overall, you guessed correctly, that is pal material, which would NOT play properly in most US consumer equipment, but would have no issues on a pc.

    To convert, you would have to resize: 720x576 to 720x480. But that is only part of the battle: you would have to do it properly to avoid issues with interlacing (which is most common in dvd), plus even more problematic is changing the framerate from 29.97 to 25. Options are complex and multitudinous.
    These can best be done with an avisynth script, but you might still get reasonable quality with ffmpeg methods. Worse in quality is your standard nle methods. Worse still are you generic "wondershare" converter tools.

    AVStoDVD can do, just add the NTSC setting in the preferences before you do anything else (it defaults to PAL)
    If it's a single title, either no menu, or a simple menu supplied by the program. Original menu not retained
