Re: determining if DVD files are NTSC or PAL

If you use Gspot, it will work with files on your HD or a disc itself. I think you can find Gspot in FAQ -> software links.

Re: determining if DVD files are NTSC or PAL

Thanks to both of you for the feedback. I will go grab Gspot.

I really should just go grab a player that handles both NTSC and PAL.

Re: determining if DVD files are NTSC or PAL

Well, I tried that, but Gspot only gives some info, and does not tell me the frame rate, which is what I need to know to determine NTSC v PAL.

Any other ideas, short of burning it? At this point it's more a matter of learning how to do this than saving a disc. Forget saving time; I've already wasted more time than it would have taken to burn it.

It actually does give framerate, look at the red #3 on the included picture:

Re: determining if DVD files are NTSC or PAL

Yes, I saw that field, but when I dropped the VOB file from the HD, that field (and many others) displayed n.a. I only got sketchy info returned.

I just noticed that you used v 2.52. The version I found was 2.1.

I just grabbed the updated version and it works!

Thanks again,

Aiko

It's nice to see someone who can fix their own problems. Now all you need to do is get your ratio up. But all in good time I'm sure...

Re: md5 question

Are you sure you actually downloaded the whole thing? Did it say 100% completed in your bittorrent window? The errors in the md5 checksum suggest that you have not completed the download.

Re: md5 question

Um, I'm not a PC person (so I don't use TLH), but I think if it said they all matched, then the files were all downloaded properly.

So, I think the next step is to figure out what went wrong when you tried to burn it. What steps did you take to burn the DVD? Have you ever burned one successfully before?

Re: md5 question

this is my first torrent download so for 2 hours now I'm trying to check what I can find in technobbable section about how they work...and to try to help in the future here

I'm burning cd's and dvd's all the time because I need to transfer my work (as a musician)...so I am a little carrefull with burning speeds...

for the torrent I downloaded, I tried to burn it as a video dvd.I saw somewhere here that is better to burn it as an dvd-rom (ISO)...


what is your suggestion?

Re: md5 question

What application are you using to burn the DVD? If you post that, we can probably get you some specific instructions on how to do it.
