I captured some old video wth the TV card. It is quite small but plays o.k
with wmp. I copied the file to a rewritable DVD. When I played it it was
jerky. Obviously a step has been missed out > the dvd program can't play it
(file error). What should I do?
Thanks

The throughput from your DVD drive is not great enough to keep up with
real-time video. If you saved it to DVD as a native file, and it was not
compressed to a level that your drive can deliver, then there is not much
you can do. Sustained and burst speeds from optical drives are many times
slower than from hard drives. You cannot assume that a video that plays
from your hard drive will play back from an optical drive without problems.


If you want to play it from the optical drive, you will have to compress it
in a format that can be handled by the drive (mpeg).

Thanks for that. I foundout how to use a program called "My DVD" it makes a
file of 400mb instead of 1.2GB. The quality on the dvd/rw isn't so great
though.
