Trying to burn files to dvd(DVD Flick)

  hiwatt 18:41 PM 17 Jul 13

Hi folks. I'm trying to burn a dvd of.mp4 files to play in a regular dvd player. There are 26 files in total each around 20 minutes in length.The total size of the folder is 3.21gb so I thought they should all fit on to a single 4.7gb dvd? When putting them into dvd flick to convert after 12 files it's saying that it's 100% full and showing as over 4 hours long. Do I need to compress them to fit them all on to one single dvd?

I would think compressing them would reduce the quality,best if you use a dvd9 dual layer disc or split the files up onto two dvd 5 discs

26 x 20 minutes = 9 hours. If you want reasonable quality video, around two hours is the maximum you should put on one DVD.

Thanks folks.I was thinking in terms of size of the files rather than length/time of them.I ended up putting 11 on a single disc and the quality's ok.Thanks folks.
