fitting DVD movie into a 4.7 dvd -R

Recommended Posts

hey :D

how do i fit a 4.30GB of movie into 4.7 GB Disk.

if i have to shrink the size of disk, does that mean i will lose quality or will the movie remain same quailty.

whats the best software to use to do this AND whats the largest size of data that u can actually shrink to fit onto a 4.7GB dvd.

also is it it possible to play PC Games that are on DVD media. and can i transfer CD games onto DVD and play them off that.

LAST THING - if i have a movie that is 8GB and i don't want to shrink it, how can i half the movie and set it onto another disk so that it becomes DISK 1 AND 2.

thanks ;)

? how do i fit a 4.30GB of movie into 4.7 GB Disk.

A Depends on the type of DVD you are trying to back up.

If its a home video all you need is Nero or similar software with a DVD Burner and make an exact duplicate of it...

? if i have to shrink the size of disk, does that mean i will lose quality or will the movie remain same quailty.

A If you shrink the movie it depends on the length of the movie

? whats the best software to use to do this AND whats the largest size of data that u can actually shrink to fit onto a 4.7GB dvd.

A If its a Hollywood Protected DVD you willl need to buy clonedvd2 and anydvd or similar product... clonedvd2 will shrink and burn the movie for you while anydvd will decrypt the protected DVD (which by the way its illegal but thats your choice)

But you can actually fit a dual layer movie of about 7 to 8GB's into a 4.7 GB Disc and you will lose some quality as you will need to compress about 50% of the movie to make it fit... Now there's a choice if you buy Dual Layer blank media DVD-9 Which actually is about 8.4GB's there would be no compression and the dics could be copied without any loss of quality. The same goes for an exact copy of a 4.7GB movie to a 4.7GB blank disc' There will be no loss of quality.

also is it it possible to play PC Games that are on DVD media. and can i transfer CD games onto DVD and play them off that.

A I don't know about this one.....

LAST THING - if i have a movie that is 8GB and i don't want to shrink it, how can i half the movie and set it onto another disk so that it becomes DISK 1 AND 2.

AAs i said above buy dual layer blaank discs aslong as you have a Dual Layer burner' Otherwise you are out of luck and you will have to buy software that is capable of burning and splitting your movie into two...

You can burn it with Nero. But you have to go through a few processes and finally encoding the file to burn it into a dvd...Nero will do that for you after you edit the video.    what format is your video?  avi, mpg, mpeg ?

the 4.30GB one is -  well it says at end of it .BUP.bc and VOB.bc and IFO.bc over a range of files but its just one movie.

my other video - their mostly avi and xvid. some are mpg.

You should have no problem burning by using Nero... Honestly i have not tried any other software to burn,  i been using Nero for about a year' There are more choices out in the market but i recommend Nero....  I Do use Vegas 6 and Adobe Premiere for my work and Nero for making less complicated movies such as home videos or movie files....
