I completed my first DVD Player playable burn of a TV program using VideoReDo and the authoring tool I had on hand (Nero Express). It went rather well I thought, but I have some questions: First: I noticed is that the size of the file output by VideoReDo (in VOB) seemed to be an appropriate length, 2.09 GB or so, minus the ads. However, after conversion to a DVD player version of VOB, by Nero, the size of the file jumped to 3.84 GB! Is this a normal, expected size increase? (Excuse my "newb" status, eh. ) Second: Nero Express was the only authoring software on-hand. Are there suggestions as to other software for creating DVD playable DVDs? (I've seen Roxio mentioned and a fellow talking about a VideoReDo authoring add-on...) Thank you for the assist folks! Vince.
