Patents for DVD video disks

Recommended Posts

Guest greensamurai

Nero charges extra to be able to burn a disc that can play on a DVD player, they say it is because there are patents. Cdburnerxp pro is free, but claims it can burn DVD video discs. Does this mean you are violating the DVD patents? Does this mean that users in the US could be harassed for using the program?

Thanks

No, it is not as you think. Patented is MPEG2 coding method and not DVD video disks. If you are able to transcode anything into the MPEG2, you can burn your DVD even in NERO without their paid addition to NERO. The addition is only able to transcode your video into MPEG2 format. BTW i donĀ“t know any costless program for coding into MPEG2. The programs often have trial versions, but none of them is costless for unlimited time or unlimited lenght of the video.

Have a nice day

Buk, if you know how to use Avisynth, Freenc, Quenc, & Nuenc are free Mpeg2 Encders especially Quenc 0.56a which now will encode audio & video. If not, AVIDemux is a good fast Mpeg2 encoder. The free version of Tmpgenc & BBMpeg are also free Mpeg2 encoders

but are slower that the rest of the above.

Hope this helps.

Also, New Version of DVDStyler is out version 1.3Beta

Later!

I'm confused, maybe this is a dumb question :oops:

If CDBurner does not support UDF, how does it burn Video DVDs?

That is not possible!

Thanks, pepe
