Question Mpeg2 file too big for DVD (and wav question)

When opening an AVI file with Vdub I get the message that there was improper VBR audio encoding and it would it would rewrite it, producing 62990 ms of skew.

Therefore, I saved the audio stream as a WAV file and saved the AVI separately.

With TMPGEnc I combined the two into a for - DVD - MPEG2 file. It plays back wonderfully on my PC but Sonic DVD, Nero, and NTI DVD maker all say the file is too big and won't fit on my 4.7 Gb DVD. It is 4147825 kb in size.

Next, to make the file smaller I deleted the credits of the AVI file - the one without the audio (because of the skew problem).

Can I combine the shortened AVI with the longer (original audio) wav file (using TMPGEnc again)? If not, how can I shorten the wav file to match the length of the AVI?

I hope all of this makes sense. I am new at this. It is my first DVD.

"It is 4147825 kb in size."

If you've typed this number correctly, it is FAR from being too large to fit on a DVD, which can easily hold well over 4,400,000kb (DVD-R 4,493Mb, DVD+R 4,483Mb). I'm guessing that the filesize you've stated is actually only the .M2V videostream (not including the audiostream).

Be that as it may, use any one of the three programs you've mentioned to make the DVD "package" on your hard drive (I assume you're able to ignore the oversize file message and proceed).

You can then use DVD Shrink to reduce the filesize as needed...

Nope - that's the combined size. Using TMPGEnc I put the AVI file (made without audio) in as the video file source and the WAV file (created by Vdub) as the audio stream. Using the TMPGEnc wizard I made one file containing both. That file is 4147825 kb in size. I open it (and only it) and it plays back just fine on my PC. The audio sounds good, video is good.

When I try to burn it to a DVD using any of the programs I mentioned, all say it is too big. I've been working at this for 3 days now. I even sacrified quality to make a smaller sized file but even a 4 gb file is too big.

When I 'Get Movie' in Sonic MYDVD - it says 5.22 Gb used.

The audiostream (WAV) file is 9.5 mg
The AVI file is 6 mg.
Combined with TMPGEnc they become a 3.95 GB (4,247,371,780 bytes) file - according to the Properties information on the file.

I am lost.

Once again, be that as it may, use any one of the three programs you've mentioned to make the DVD "package" on your hard drive (I assume you're able to ignore the oversize file message and proceed).

You can then use DVD Shrink to reduce the filesize as needed...



("The audiostream (WAV) file is 9.5 mg

These numbers make no sense)

Oops!

I meant that the files were 90 meg and 60 meg in size.

I downloaded DVDshrink and have created a folder with the VOB files, etc.

Now I am trying to find a guide to burn the DVD using these files. I have the trial versions of each of the following:

TMPGEnc DVD Author - can't find an online guide

NTI CD & DVD Maker - It can't see to use these types of files. It asks for AVIs or Mpegs.

Sonic MyDVD - came with my burner but can't see to accept these types of files either - when I select the files it says they are an invalid type.

Nerovision Express 2 - can't find an online guide

I do appreciate the help very much. It must make you shake your head sometimes when you get such dumb newbies as me.

"TMPGEnc DVD Author - can't find an online guide"

Have you tried simply clicking on the "Help" dropdown menu?
