I've downlaoded a show which is in 24-bit instead of 16-bit(CD qaulity), I know it has to be burnt onto DVD-A but how am I supposed to do that? just convert the Flac's to wav and burn them or what? anyone know? Of course they won't play on my computer, okay they do but its just some distortion, that's why I need to know how to burn them properly on DVD to play them...

I'm thinking it will be more common in the future to get the opportunity to dl 24-bit audios along with the 16-bits, well maybe, but if so I would like to know how to deal with them. thanks

they should play on your computer. that's the main way to listen to 24bit for the time being. did you try it in foobar2000/winamp?

oh yeah thanks, it works with foobar, usually just use this for shn, should have figured out myself :) . now, when I wanna burn it on DVD(audio) do I have to put the WAVs in the Audio_TS like i put vobs in the Videos_TS folder or something. anyone know, I can't find any option in Nero to burn DVD-audios, that's why I'm asking... cheers

to burn dvda you will need something other than nero but you can burn it like a regular dvd by dragging the wav files into the Video_TS folder and burn as you would normal vobs then stick in your dvd player and play

yeah, burning a 24bit "audio DVD" is a little tricky, I'll add something to the title to help attract DVD authors to this thread to shed some light.

are we talking about DVD-V or DVD-A? you can have DVD-V discs with just audio also. in which case it could be 16 bit and in surround sound. I think he's asking about DVD-A which wouldn't be in surround sound and would be 24 bit. clarification would be helpful.

But what torrent are you talking about?
Why would you burn WAV onto DVD? Is it so heavy as 4,380 Gigs? I mean, who long is the gig, this has to be many hours. never heard about burning audio files onto DVD, unless they are MP3 to be played with your home DVD player.
If you post the link of the stuff it would help.
You won't be able to play wav files with any normal player, I think, cos what Nero does while burning stuff as CD audio is converting them into cda files, and those are playable with normal CD players, wav ones are playable through your comp, only.

What you need for 24 bit files is software:

foobar will play 24 bit files on your computer

http://www.audio-dvd-creator.com is an application to create a dvd-audio to play on your dvd player.

Audio DVD Creator you have to pay for; sourceforge.net has a free dvd-audio creator but I don't know what it's called offhand.

Player compatibility
The introduction of the DVD-Audio format required some kind of backward compatibility with existing DVD-Video players. To address this, most DVD-Audio discs contain, at a minimum, a Dolby Digital 5.1-channel audio track on the disc[3] (which can be downmixed to two channels for listeners with no surround sound setup). Some discs also include a native Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo, and even a DTS 96/24 5.1-channel, audio track[4]. A criticism of DVD-Audio and SACD is that both require the listener to be near a home stereo system as one cannot rip either format to digital audio players. As of 2006, very few car stereos are capable of playing DVD-Audio discs.[2]

Some have stated that the cheap optical disc players are most likely to play all formats used by the various burner hardware and software manufacturers.[citation needed]

In addition to a standard single-sided disc, a "hybrid" DVD-Audio disc (HDAD) also exists. One side of the disc contains content that can be played in a standard DVD-Video player (such as the album in Dolby Digital 5.1 audio) and the other side contains content for DVD-Audio players (such as the album in 24-bit 96kHz PCM 5.1-channel audio). An example of an album released on an HDAD is The Beach Boys' 1966 album Pet Sounds.

Thank you very much @<hidden> all. I will be using audio DVD creator, when i decode the FLACs, the WAVs will be about 2GB and the recording itself is worth buning it on DVD-A I think; especially if you've been to that show and then downlaod the recording in superb quality. thanks again

Hope the link work .This is really easy and works. 24 bit sounds so much better than 16 . I usually replace the Black frame with a pic of the artist and a note to turn off the tv and listen.

Is there anything wrong with adding 24s to a DVD video as the audio track?

I know the audio and video bitrates need to be kept in check to some extent so they don't max out..

but I don't know if 24s would be good or bad for a video or what
