    I have Toast Titanium 7 and sometimes, when I go to burn, it tells me that the Video_TS folder can't be compressed. I tried burning directly to DVD, but it wouldn't play in my player. Can someone tell me what I can or need to do? Thanks.

    Video_ts is nothing more than a mpeg 2 container. If you have a video TS folder. Go into toast, select video, then dvd from video_ts folder. Drag the folder into toast and burn. Buring a regualr data dvd will not work because the format differences between movie dvds and standard data dvds.

    I tried that a few times and each time it locked up and quit. It's irritating me to no end! :mad:

    I assume you used MTR. Some Video_TS folders are not burnable by Toast if you chose the Main Feature Extraction option, for some reason. Do it again with Full Disc Extraction.

    Here's the way I do it: 1. Use Mac The Ripper 2.6.6. (either full extract or main feature), 2. Use DVD2One software to shrink down (if necessary) to fit DVD-R single layer (4.37 GB), 3. Use Toast Titanium 6 or 7 to burn Video_TS & Audio_TS (Audio_TS isn't really necessary). Be sure to use "UDF" Universal Disk Format so DVD will play on your standalone DVD player.

    Almost identical to how I do it except I use Disco. More than that, though, many current DVD players can play ISO-9660 discs, so UDF isn't always necessary.

    You might try to compress with something else first then do a simple data burn with just about anything, even Finder.

    After compression, whether you burn full disk or feature only, the burn process is still just a straight forward data burn and can be done in Finder if it is unprotected content.

    When I get to the burning step I just use the Finder. I have Toast but burning a video_ts folder is really just a straight forward data burn that doesn't require special burning software. For this step, the only thing Toast can do for me more than Finder is skip the verification step, which I like to verify everything anyway. (I know, but it's an anal thing I guess) I have not had any issues burning single layer or dual layer disks in Finder. I used to burn a lot of DL disks but since I don't have a 200" widescreen TV I now compress everything to fit on single layer disks to save money and they look fine on thirty something inch TV's.

    If I want to compress a video_ts folder to a low resolution quicktime movie that I can transfer electronically to someone, should I follow the same steps?

    Compressing a Video_TS folder to under 3.9 megs

    Is there anything like DVD2OneX out there that does the same thing that does not cost $60? I think $60 is pretty steep, especially for a program I only use once in a while.

    E-mail me Lestat138@aol.com

    Thanks
    All Info is Appreciated

    BTW Disco does not convert Video_TS files to fit to a reg DVD
