Windows DVD Maker destroys my video RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried to create a dvd compilation of MPEG-2 format files recorded on my JVC Everio camcorder.

    The videos import perfectly fine into dvd maker, the preview is ok, and I burn.

    Problem 1. Transcode. It takes about 3-4 hours to transcode 1 hour of video. Ouch. No option to disable this.

    Problem 2. Video transcode quality. On 1 PC, the video is just shredded, it looks like the scanlines are all jumbled, it's a horrible mess. On another PC the video is actually recognizeable, but the colors are really messed up, not quite inverted, but close.

    What I don't understand is the menus that the program creates with mini-versions of some of the movies are perfect.

    Is DVD Maker a hopeless piece of garbage software? Should I just forget about it and try something else?

    Anyone else see anything like this?

    Thanks.
