    you got to author the mpgeg file with authoring software..(adds chapters menus & puts it all together in audio/video folders with other files required for the dvd-video format. my stand alone dvd player will play a mpgeg-2 file burnt as a data disk. try and see if yours will aswell. if it works and you do this there will be no chapters.

    What kind of set top player do you have that will play an MPEG-2? Are video and sound in sync? Is this true of most late model set top players?

    I have a "KLH DIGITAL" best dvd player I have ever bought and Iv'e been through a bunch.

    About the sound being out of sync... if the sound/video is out of sync before you put it on dvd its going to be out of sync on the dvd. somtimes I get this problem with my capturing card. I just make sure to fix the video before I put it on disk.

    Hi,

    about the sound... I have a tv capture card and the MPEGs created by it (using SnapStream 3) come out fine, sound in sync and everything, but when I use the TMPG DVD Author, the sound comes out slightly off (usually a pinch slow). May I ask what you're using to Author?

    Thanks

    I'm using 'Sonic Foundry - DVD Architect' to convert mpeg-->dvd
    Haven't had any sound problems so far (touch wood !!: )

    (It took serious patience to read thru DVD Architect guide for the 1st time)

    Thanks for the input. I discovered today that if I change the audio bitrate settings (to something other than what they're supposed to be) in TMPGEnc DVD Author, it can put the sound back in sync... it may be that when SnapStream produces its MPEGs, the resulting specs aren't really what they say they are in the quality settings template you select for the recording. Looks like it's going to be a considerable learning curve with that. I started a spreadsheet today listing the rates at which I record movies in SnapStream and then the authoring results. I've gotten 2 decent movies, finally.


    Clearly, there's really no one right way to do all this. I look back at my foolish self a month ago thinking, 'for the price of TIVO I could upgrade my computer ~and~ burn my own movies!'

    Yeh, it's been that easy... {cough} but at least I've learned a few things.

    And, I'm hooked :)
