    Having issues making dvd from .m4v using Burn

    I figue Burn is loosing AC3 audio on converting, since u hear no audio when playing the converted .mpg in VLC, nor Quicktime Player, even with Perian installed, yet the original .m4v i have plays fine..

    And the media info shows (AC3) while the mpg one doesn't.

    I added Perian thinking it may have helped with converting

    In Burn, also tried MP2 under DVD section, but Burn keeps reporting "Unsupported audio"

    Any solution ?

    Solved.... Burn only converts to mpg which doesn't hold AC3 audio nor PCM (which to me is a limitation) buut i guess that's what i get for using 'free' software, not to mention outdated.

    Used Toast which works.

    That's what all video DVD burning software converts to, including Toast.
