I currently use WinDVD Creater 4 to make my DVDs. I usually have around 1-2 hours of video on the dvd's I create. In WinDVD creator it seems that it has to "Make the movie" by playing it in the little screen, while it really slowly progresses. It takes about 2 hours to make the movie in that damned program. Is there any programs that can make the movie without having to wait so freaking long?

This question has nothing to do with my dvd burner speed, just the program and how long it takes to create the dvd in the program.

Thanks in advance for any replies!

You might try closing any running processes that you know you don't need. Shut off your antivirus and firewall temporarily, and open windows, browsers, etc. Then leave it and let it burn, and see if that helps.

2 hours is not long time and here's why:

In order for the movie to be playable on a standalone DVD player, the movie has to be encoded to meet the DVD standard. You movie was not filmed in DVD format (MPEG2, 720x480 @ 29.97 FPS). Your movie is probably in 4:3 standard NTSC TV format wich is probably at 352x240 @ 23.976 FPS.

The movie MUST be encoded at 720x480 @29.97 FPS (for NTSC players) or it won't work. So what WinDVD Creater is doing is converting the movie from 352x240 @ 23.976, to 720x480 @ 29.976. 2 Hours is not a long time to do the conversion, actually, that's pretty fast. Usually 2 hours of movie takes about 6 hours to convert(depending on the PC)

I will probably get in trouble for this but this forum is a great resource:

Easier to hack your DVD player to play the other formats.. :)

or build yourself a linux media center with a old mobo.
