Hi all,

I have a .VOB file that I just burned onto a DVD+R using Roxio's MyDVD application. But when I watch the resulting video on my DVD player, it looks pretty 'jumpy'.

Any ideas what might be causing this? The source file, the MyDVD application, my DVD player?
For what it's worth, I'm burning at 16x and video quality is set to HQ (High Quality), and my system is Windows XP.

Thanks for your help,
cronopio

Hey cronopio, I'm not a huge fan of Roxio. I'd give Nero trial version a try for starters. What brand of burner are you using and have you updated the firmware for it? Make sure your using quality media like Tayo Yuden or Verbatim. It also could be as simple as lowering your burn speed to 12 or 8X. What is the VOB file? Could it be encrypted? If so you can try the trial version of AnyDVD by Slysoft. If these ideas don't help, give us a bit more info that I asked about and we'll take it from there.
Good Luck,
Mark :up::cool:

Hey Sportfish,

Solved!
I started with the first option, and after figuring out Nero's not-so-intuitive interface, I must say that "I'm not a huge fan of Roxio" is, for me, quite an understatement. Burning the DVD with Nero took a fraction of the time AND resulted in smooth video. I'll be buying my Nero license soon.

Thanks,
cronopio

Well, I spoke too soon. I burned two DVDs like this with Nero: one refused to load in my DVD player at all (although it plays OK on the PC), the other started showing errors (read: grinding to a halt) about 2 minutes in. Could I expect better results if I slow down Nero? It takes only 5 minutes, versus over an hour with Roxio. I'll try slowing it down a bit, maybe that'll help.
Maybe I should buy some Verbatim DVDs, although Roxio seems to have no problems with these DVDs (except for the jumpy results).
The burner I use is just whatever is in my Dell Dimension E520 :)

Use your Nero Info tool and see what type of drive it is (Brand) and what Firmware then Google it and and make sure you have the most current firmware for it. Also what type of disks are you using? Personally, if I have something to burn that I want to keep for a long time, I'll never burn over 12X. After the thousands of burns that I've done, this seems to be the best speed for the best quality. Depending on the make of your drvie, you maybe able to to use Nero CD/DVD Speed to scan your disks and get a view of the quality of the burn. Hope this helps.
