Default mpeg2 burned is corrupted by dvdflick

I stared with a .tivo, used data dumper to dump as mpeg.

mpeg2 is viewable via windows media player/real player. Quality is fine.

I attempt to burn the result mpeg2 with dvdflick with NTSC, best, and even second pass at encoding.

It produces a distorted image. It was burned with 4:3 since it was recorded from TV. The image was tall and skinny and cut off most of the viewing area of the original movie files on the computer. It also had strange edge effects on the outlines of people. it wasn't just messed up from the aspect ratio perspective, there was obviously something else wrong with it also.

I don't know much/anything about encoding/authoring, so I was wondering what I might have done wrong with dvdflick to go from good quality mpeg2 viewable on my computer to dvd coaster.

you must have something non-standard about your video?

download mediainfo and rightclick on your source mpeg you are using to convert and post the text view of the file

http://mediainfo.sourceforge.net/en

dvdflick defaults to pal, that's bad for ntsc land

and fill in some details on this vivo capture?

and hopefully one of our geekier video enthusiasts will join in before I drown

I am still trying to figure this stuff out myself

Half D1(NTSC 352 x 480) is an accepted DVD standard.

@coaster_burner
In DVD Flick Project Settings ,under Video/Advanced check the option "Half horizontal resolution" and see if it helps.

Yes. Standalone compatibility may be a problem. The link you gave refers to posts in 2006.Haven't the recent players solved the issue?

I'll try that thanks. Now that i think about it, the image was probably twice as tall on the dvd as what it should have been.

The capture was a series 2 Tivo.. I might not have the tivo set at the highest quality either.

Thanks again. I'll update the thread when I have a chance to test that out on Friday probably.

Yes. So do DVD Flick , VideoReDo, TMPGEnc, Nero Vision Express, DVD RB. With nearly all the commonly used programs supporting Half D1, I think most newer standalones can play Half D1 DVDs.

DON'T. AFAIK, at highest quality,it captures at 480x480 ,which is NOT a valid DVD resolution. At medium quality it captures at 352x480 which is Half D1 resolution.

Default video ok, but source combine went awry

The video is fine at Half D1, but the DVD that was created is bad for a different reason this time.. after a few minutes of the dvd, the audio gets several seconds behind the video and remains behind. not sure if it was a skip or just a slow loss of time. the scenes are narrated video, so you can't quite tell it is behind until there is actual dialogue in the 5th minute or so.

adding to my coaster collection,

Job
