    I have a dvd dual layer burner and i want to fit two video files onto a 4.7 regular dvd-r disc. The two files add up to about 7 gigs after encoding and i want to fit this movie(made of 2 parts) onto a 4.7 disc. Is there a way or do i need a blank dual layer dvd???

    Hi ps2dude,


    You seem to not be starting off with too much of an idea of what you want to do.

    Are you going to use a single disc OR a DL disc ?

    Using a DL disc you'll need no compression, using a single, you'll need some compression. Not enough so that you'll see any difference in quality if you take your time.

    I'll start you off with doing it on a single BUT I don't want to be wasting my time if you're not doing it that way . . .
    To put 2 movies on a single disc, use DVD2One in the "Join" MODE and set it for a Non-seamless type.

    I recommend using CopyToDVD to burn with as it workshand-in-hand with DVD2One.

    Here are the links for both programs -

    DVD2One -

    CopyToDVD -
    http://shareit.com/product.html?cart=1&productid=157972&languageid=1&affiliateid=70128

    Here's a guide for DVD2One - Don't let it fool you, it's so simple you hardly need a guide BUT it does tell you a lot.

    For 2 Discs on 1 use DVD2One in the "Join" mode.
    The join mode is a very powerful new feature of DVD2one. It can be used for many things:
    Joining a movie that has been spread over 2 sides of a disk (aka "flipper") or even over 3 disks.
    Joining of different episodes of a (TV) series on 1 disk.
    Adding a music video, documentary or Featurette after the main movie.
    Adding an intro (for instance THX or Dolby) before the main movie.
    Or any combination of the above possibilities !
    The join mode is not limited to only 2 titles, but it can join any number of titles on 1 disk. Of course the total size of the titles you want to join has its limits. DVD2one has built-in warning messages to let you know when you go to far.

    The join mode has 2 different modes:
    Seamless. The separate titles are joined in 1 titleset, and will play continuously without interruption.
    Non-seamless. Each title is put in its own titleset, and there will be a small delay when the player goes from one to the other title.

    The seamless mode is the perfect mode for joining a movie that has been spread over different sides or disks. DVD2one will examine automatically whether the different titles can be seamless joined together. For this the video, audio and subtitles need to be the same.
    The non-seamless mode will work with any title, and can be used in all other cases. DVD2one provides convenient ways to skip through the different title sets.

    How to use
    The join mode is very simple to use, since it works like a repeated movie-only mode. After selecting the first title you come to a summary screen. Here you can select another title you like to add to the list, or start processing. If you select to join another title, you will advance through the selection screens again. The only difference is when using seamless mode, you do not have to select audio, subtitle and angle. The selection for these items is taken from the title to which the new title is seamlessly joined.
    Advanced Navigation Mode
    This new feature is experimental and may not work correctly with specific DVD players, or may have some unwanted side effects. It is recommended to try it first with a re-writable disk. It adds the following ways to navigate between the different title sets:
    · Right menu button for next titleset.
    · Left menu button for previous titleset.
    · Next chapter at the last chapter of a title
    Goes to the next titleset.
    · Previous chapter at the first chapter of a
    Title goes to the previous titleset.
    The menu button system may interfere with subtitles. Also if a titleset does not have subtitles, a dummy subtitle is added to make this feature to work.

    About $35.00 (USD) But well worth the $$ - I've never regretted my purchase of it. The Demo only does 30 minutes of movies.

    FYI, Using this proggy, I have put 4 trimmed DVD-9 movies on a single disc and 5, DVD-5's on a single sided DVD with the quality of a commercial VHS tape. 5 -hours of movies is a snap.

    Cheers,

    Pete :0)

    i want to fit 2 avi files to a 4.7 dvd-r. I want to play it on my dvd player, but when i encode the 2 avi files it becomes about 7 gigs. I want to be able to fit these two encoded files on a regular dvd-r hoping my dvd DL burner will automatically burn two layers for me on a regular 4.7 instead of using a DL 8 gig disc. I'll try DVD2one for now...Thanks for the help

    There arent 2 layers on a regular 4.7 gb dvd r. So im not quite sure what you mean when you say you hope it automatically burns it to 2 layers on a normal 4.7 dvd. Unfortunately you cant fit 7 gigs on a 4.7 gig dvd. You may want to just burn the seperate AVI files to seperate dvds. It may be possible to shrink the files down to fit onto one with one of the editing programs but your probably going to suffer a severe loss of quality. At least i would think so. Well thats all. im not an expert but i hope it helps.

    I hope when I wake up tomorrow my gold-filled pen will change itself into 25 pounds of solid 24ct.gold bricks BUT I don't think it will happen.

    Sometimes we have to face reality -

    It seems that you didn't wish to read my post -

    The choice of course was yours -

    pchan424 has told you the same thing - did you read his post ?

    The choice again was yours BUT My guess is - NOT ! !

    It does seem silly to spend time typing for pple who won't read what you write -

    Sea Yaaaaaaaaa,
