    Hi Folks-
    Need the opinions from the pros from Dover.

    I have an M4V file that plays perfectly on my computer.
    When I convert it to VOB DVD files they play perfectly.
    But when I try to burn a DVD with Nero,DVDflick Freemakers, etc AND
    when I convert it to an image file and try to burn a DVD with IMGburn- the resulting video in both cases "pixelates" every few seconds.
    I have tried a reduced burn rate to 8X
    The DVD burned has the same problems in the computer as it does in the standalone.
    Any clue to what I might try to correct the problem?

    Thanks!

    Steve F.

    Use 'Verbatim' brand disks that say 'Advanced AZO' on the package.
    Don't buy Verbatim 'Life' series - those don't use the AZO dye.

    I'll give it a shot. I just use TDKs now.
    Never experienced a problem with them in the past in regard to overcoming pixelation.
    Thought some alternate technique/software used in burning was needed.

    Thanks

    M4V & MP4 are one & the same,the ext 4v is only used for playback on certain devices & media players that only use the 4v ext, otherwise you a can just change ext to mp4 without recoding
