Windows 7: Burning videos to a bluray disc

Burning videos to a bluray disc

I converted a season of a TV show (12 episodes) and would like to burn to a bluray disc.

Is that possible?

I tried IMGBURN, but it won't accept the bluray disc, unless I'm missing a setting?

Any programs that would accomplish this?

Thanks,

Paul

Just tried Aleesoft Easy Blu-ray Creator - Blu-ray Burner, Burn video to Blu-ray, AVCHD, DVD, SVCD, VCD

The files are 10gbs, but when I try to burn it says "too Big" for bluray disc (25gbs)

What do you mean "I converted some shows..."? Using what software? What is the file type of these "conversions"? Are these 16:9 720p/1080i HDTV shows to begin with? Or are they SD 4:3 480i?

And when you say you want to burn to BluRay, do you mean you want to create an actual BDMV or AVCHD format disc so as to play in true 720p/1080i just like the original HDTV programs? Authored, with visual navigation and titles and chapters, just like a commercial disc?

IMGBurn will absolutely burn to BluRay, on blank BD media. Actually, it will also burn BDMV and AVCHD to plain DVD blank media, for shorter programs that don't need the full capacity of blank BD media.

You can create an authored BDMV/AVCHD disc image file set (intended for and suitable for burning with IMGBurn) with individual titles (or chapters of one title) for each of your "converted shows" using multiAVCHD. If your clips are edits but still original MPEG-2 format and 1920x1080 or 1280x720 size (in any of the various wrapper formats which can hold MPEG-2, such as MPG, TS, M2TS, etc.) then the authored BDMV produced by multiAVCHD will also contain untouched un-recompressed true original bit-duplicate HDTV quality content. Only if you are trying to author recompresses or resizes will your result also require re-rendering by multiAVCHD.

I used Freemake to convert to Video_TS.

The 12 episodes are 10gbs total and I would simply like to burn them to a 25gb Bluray disc.

Sorry if I was unclear.

Also tried your link - all downloads are inoperable.

Found a different link and will try it.

I'm going to re-encode to mkv and use your program to burn to bluray disc.

That should work, right?

Sorry about the dead links for download. The author's kind of dropped out, and it's his own program and site. What can I say. Thankfully it's still available elsewhere and actually does work fine. And the author's site I linked to originally does provide much information about the product, although I would suggest the Doom9 forum if you truly want support from other users.

Now multiAVCHD isn't the burning program. It only creates the folder containing the BDMV-compliant files in the format that IMGBurn wants to see and will then burn to BD blank media. You'll end up with an authored navigable disc that will play in any BluRay player machine that can play recordable BD media (e.g. Oppo players).

I've never actually created a multiAVCHD project providing MKV files, but these are supported. My own burns have been with MPG edited clips (from VideoRedo, which handles WTV recordings, saving the edits as MPG because that's what I specified since multiAVCHD doesn't support WTV but does support MPG) of HDTV programs (i.e. copy-freely MPEG-2 720p/1080i HDTV 16:9 programs originally recorded from OTA/ATSC TV tuner card by Windows Media Center as WTV files). However MKV should work just as well.

Again, because multiAVCHD knows about MPEG-2 inside of the MPG files, it does not re-compress as part of the process of producing the BDMV folder. It's 100% frame-copy original HDTV program duplicated. Your MKV results may cause multiAVCHD to need to recompress your programs... I don't know. I wanted top-possible quality, i.e. ORIGINAL HDTV PROGRAMS DUPLICATED ONTO BLURAY DISCS so I could play them from disc, and wasn't concerned with resulting file size or how much of the BD blank media got used. I wanted HDTV on authored BDMV disc, and that's what I got.

Now I've also used multiAVCHD to author a "BDMV clip disc", with about 45 AVI video clips (made from original 480i 4:3 videos) adding up to almost 2 hours play time. This wasn't HDTV but the result was again a BDMV-format disc, and it did take quite a while (i.e. about 30 hours!, since every AVI had to be re-compressed into BDMV-compatible format) to produce the final folder ready for IMGBurn to burn.

Okay - thanks for all your help.

I'll let you know how it turns out.

Well, tried the program and this is the error I get.

Can't even use the X to close it - have to go to dev mgr to close it.

Can you tell me what this means and how to correct it?

Thanks,

Paul

Honestly, I don't have any idea. I've never had any failure with the program.

What point are you at? What have you done so far, and what did you just do that triggered this message? Presumably you didn't have a problem up to this latest step as you were adding files, so what was it that you just did?

What settings did you establish for this multiAVCHD project?

Also, "Ray Donovan" is copy-protected premium content on SHO in the digital domain. What did you record these programs with, what type of original file recordings were made, and how did you then produce content that could then be edited and converted to remove the copy-protection? If you remained in the digital domain, I don't know how this is possible. if you started from an analog recording of SHO, that's a different matter.

So what did you start from, what did you use to edit, what did you use to convert and to what type of video file that you're now adding to the multiAVCHD project? What can you play these video files with?

Six titles, 5 1/4 hours of total program time, and only 6GB of data?? That's an awful lot of compression when the individual episodes are about 5 1/2GB per show in 16:9 1080i HDTV.
