  1. Hello everyone,

    I am new to the world of video creation / authoring and as the topic title already says, I need some help.

    What I want to do:
    burn a CD-ROM, that contains multiple data sources:
    1. a video (in a format, that plays on most DVD players)
    2. an mp3 (that plays on CD-players with mp3 support)

    What I have got:
    • MP4 (854x480, AVC, Main@L3.1, 29.97, 2h 13min, 404MB)
    • MP3 (CBR 128, 2h 13min, 130MB)

    What I have done so far:
    Unfortunately none of what I have tried did what I wanted it to.

    Any help appreciated

    you're not going to get 133 minutes of video onto a cd in any format that will have enough bitrate to be watchable on a tv. svcd is good up to about 45 minutes. vcd twice that, but is cbr and can only hold 80 minutes of video tops. and finding players that support vcd, and svcd may be hard.

    did you try just writing the mp4 and mp3 to a cd as files? some players may accept them.


    a dvd may work better, that way you could at least make a higher quality video.

    848x480 isn't a valid size for DVD playback, you'll have to resize to one of the sizes listed in the following link by cropping top, bottom or both or resizing it and adding a border top and or sides :https://www.videohelp.com/dvd

    You add your .mp3 (and any other file) to the Extras folder on a DVD, but not all DVD players will be able access and play the file

    You can add the audio to the Audio video on a DVD, but you'll have to convert it to one of the valid audio formats listed in the link above. Not all DVD players will be able to access and play the file since the Audio folder is rarely used.

    It may be possible to make a mini-DVD on a CD with the DVD file structure, but the video would have to resized to fit 320x240 at MPEG-1 and be a really low bitrate to get 133 minutes, possibly below the minimum bitrate allowed by the DVD specs

    Yeah, you are gonna have to make a decision between using older, authored formats (look up my old posts on AVCD) for more universal legacy compatibility
    vs
    Using newer tech (bd) or Using data discs to retain quality along with full playing time.

  6. Actually I want to copy a video for my mum. She only has a DVD player / TV and an old PC with a 19" 4:3 monitor.
    So the only way she can watch movies in "higher" resolutions is via DVD player.

    I have multiple source files
    The first is an mp4 A/V file:
    Code:
    General
    Format                      : MPEG-4

    The best you could do with that would either be creating a DVD data disc that had DivX (or Xvid masquerading) files & mp3 files.
    Or,
    A standard DVD-Video disc.

    The former has the potential for higher resolution, but the toolset & process might be cumbersome trying to find what actually works.
    The latter has straightforward tools and techniques and is universally supported, but can give SD video at best.
    However, it doesn't sound like that tv is anything beyond a CRT and it sounds like it is being fed via composite cable, so the DVD path is preferrable.

    AVIDemux can convert to xvid, chose MPEG4 ASP (xvid4) as the video output. The audio as .mp3 in the second file should be fine. I'm not sure the odd resolutions 854x480 and 640x360 or the 720p since the player is primarily DVD.

    Edit: Just dawned on me. 854x480 is square pixel and 640x360 must be cropped 640x480, so not that odd.
