Quicktime video to Video CD help required

Postby lee on Sat Feb 11, 2006 7:41 am

Can anybody help me please?

I wish to create a video CD (or DVD) of Quicktime video files made with a Nikon Coolpix point & shoot camera. I want to send it to my parents & in-laws so they can play it on their TV's with their TV DVD players. Neither of them have computers.

I know very little about the subject & have not been able to work it out.

I did manage to create a video CD that would play on my computer using Nero 6. However, it would not play on my modern TV DVD player\recorders, Panasonic & Sony.

Looking forward to any responce, thanks.

Hello!

Try to convert the files with TMPG Enc (VCD, SVCD, DVD) or DVD Source creator. Free trial here:

what format are the movie file the camera makes?

you have Nero 6, right? did you try using NeroVision Express and loading the movie files into it and using that to make VCDs or DVDs ?

Yes I did & burnt as a video CD. The resulting disc played on my PC but not on any of the 5 domestic DVD players I was able to try it on.

I have tried TPMG Enc software but get the same result.

Why is such a simple & obvious use of video from P & S cameras so difficult to achieve? I can't be the only person who wants to show the movies this way.

Just to let you know that Nero Vision Express works when converting Quicktime files to DVD so I can create discs to play on the TV. I still can't burn VCD's that play on my domestic DVD players.

With the low cost of blank DVD's it doesn't matter anyway. I just wish I had tried DVD's ages ago!

Thanks for every one's help.
