  • Elementary Streams Vs Non Elemental

    When using Print To Fie to create a DVD compliant MPEG-2 file for later use in another program to author a DVD, would it be better to export as a system MPEG-2 or Elemental Stream? Thanks

    elementary stream without a doubt is correct

    program stream is wrong, it will need to be demuxed by the authoring software and then get remuxed again

      Thanks Antons, I was hoping you would weigh in on this with your experience with DVD. Saved me a lot of time experimenting and wasted DVD's.

        That actually depends on the software you use to author the DVD. If you use consumer-oriented software like DVD Movie Factory (which comes bundled with Edius), be aware that it does not accept Elementrary Stream files.

          I am using DVDStyler, which does accept elementary streams.

            Second Question Elementary Streams Vs System Streams

            Anton, why do you recommend 7700 kbps instead of the seemingly more recommended of 8000?

              if you are burning, using 7700 allows you to use 256 for audio, giving you a safe total of 8000

              you will find that there are bitrate spikes that can go up to 1500 over your set value, so 8000+1500+256 is pushing it for burning, the resulting DVD may freeze at such a high bitrate spike

              if you are sending for glass mastering and replication, you can go much higher
