Burning shows/movies into DVD

  1. hi..

    i was wondering how i am able to burn more shows onto a DVD..

    i recently burnt three 350mb shows into a DVD which will be playable on a DVD player.. however, each show amounts to 1GB+ when burnt into the DVD and i'm only able to burn 3 of it into a DVD..
    seems to be a waste of space..

    i've seen that one DVD can hold up to 8 episodes.. how do i burn it that way?

    Its called compression. And the type you choose is determined on if your dvd player can play it.

    Other methods is to chop up the video, which i don't think you'll want..

    are your dvd's 4.7 gigs? if so, you should be able to fit 4 at that size. As poster above already said, its about compression.

    Also, consider possibly dvd-rw's if you can burn them. Thats what we use here, we use the same ones every week, and they play well.

    I found the greatest piece of software for this type of task: VSO ConvertXtoDVD!
    If you want to add multiple episodes to a DVD all you need to do is add each file into the same project and it will do all the work for you and burn it on DVD.
