I had a 2GB avi video that i wanted to burn onto a DVD. The only problem is that it was apparently very compressed, and the actual video ended up being about 7GB when i imported it; way too large for a disk. Through some work (involving Wine for mac and DVDShrink for windows) i ended up with a 4.5 GB VIDEO_TS folder containing the whole video. It was the only way i knew how to compress the file sufficiently and have it still play on a dvd player. The only problem is that im not quite sure what to do with this VIDEO_TS folder. Ive tried this: http://www.iclarified.com/entry/index.php?enid=5193, and it didnt work. The DVD player recognized a DVD but couldnt play it. Ive also tried burning a data disk with the app "burn", using a UDF filesystem and just copying the VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS folders. This just had the same effect as above. Ive heard that the ordering of the files in the folders makes sense, and that the .inf file has to come before the .bup files, but with the mac's automatic ordering, that just doesnt seem possible. Any suggestions? Any way to directly compress the original 2 GB .avi so it fits on the disk? Or to successfully burn a VIDEO_TS folder so that it plays on a dvd player?
