Default Putting more than one hour of video on a DVD-R

Here's a little trick I use to get more than one hour of video on to a standard DVD-R.

Whatever software you are using to render and burn your video to DVD-R, see if it allows you to render your DVD ready video to a folder on your hard disk, instead of burning it directly to a DVD-R. If so, do it.

Once the video has been rendered to a folder on your hard disk, use [link=http://www.dvdshrink.org/what.html]DVD-Shrink[/link] to reduce the size of the video in the folder and copy it to another folder on your hard disk. (DVD-Shrink has an mode that automatically calculates how much to shrink the video. Very easy to use program. And it is free!)

Finally, use any burning software that can burn a DVD-R from an already prepared folder on your hard disk, such as Nero Burning ROM, to burn the reduced size video from the second folder.

It's a lengthy process, because you are rendering the video twice, but the results speak for themselves. I have jammed as much as 3 hours of video on to a standard 1 hour DVD-R with almost no discernable loss of quality. (Most of our amatuer video is not the greatest quality to begin with. )

Have fun!

If you use a kvcd template and do half DVD resolution, you can get 9+ hours on one disk, if you do VCD on DVD you can get 12+ hours on one DVD :O

And that is DVD5, double it for DVD9 :O :O :O
