Authoring a DVD That Works

So a co-worker went on a trip and didn’t have anyone that could record some television for her. It was the season start of her favourite show, so I volunteered to download it for her and put it on a DVD so she could watch it. What I didn’t realize is that unlike my computer and the Phillips DVD players I have, other people use DVD players that can’t play any special files.

I converted the AVI into an MPEG-2 file, and still she couldn’t play it on her three year old Sony DVD player. Now, when I get home this evening, I’m going to have to figure out how to properly author a DVD for her. So if anyone has any tips, tricks or advice I’d appreciate it.

  1. Sony DVD players are finicky. Try using iDVD or Toast burning at the lowest speed setting, doing this removed any issues I’ve had.
