Found a concert on YT, but it's in 3 parts. Can I burn all 3 to 1 disc?  I was able to get a 3 hour tribute concert for Chester Bennington on 1 disc, but it was a single video clip. I didn't convert any of the files, just downloaded them.

 

Is it possible?

You can burn as much as will fit on the disc, size wise. The duration of the videos doesn't matter.

So add up the size (in bytes) of the 3 files and compare it to what's available on a blank disc - give or take a little bit for file system overhead.
Please don't PM me with questions that should be posted in the forum. I won't reply - Especially if you have post count of 0!!!

Replies to posts belong in the forum where everyone can read them. Please don't PM them.

In fact, don't PM me at all unless it's something I've asked to be told about!

Before asking questions, search the forum to see if someone else already has.

Use the FAQ and Guides forums to your advantage. I don't want to have to tell you to read them!

And, it depends on how you intend to play these video files, too.  Depending on the method, that determines the type of disc you'll need to create.  And that method determines how large the resulting disc needs to be.  If you're just putting the 3 files on a disc, then, as LUK said, just add up the file sizes and see if it fits on a CD-R/RW, DVD+/-R/DL, or BD-R/E SL/DL.  For instance, if you need the videos to play on a DVD player, then, you'll need to see if your player can play them from a disc.  Otherwise, you'll need to convert the files to a DVD-Video VIDEO_TS, which will be larger than the files.

You could, if you wanted, create a few extra folders for backups of those files, too, if you wrote them to a DVD-+R.  While it probably never would happen, if you got a bad sector on the disc and couldn't read the files from the disc, the backup folders may still be readable and thus recoverable.  While what would most likely happen is a bad sector would either not be limited to 1 or it would, most likely, render the entire disc unreadable, it is a cushion you might fall back on.

 

 

You can play those MP4 files directly from the disc you make on a PC.  Your DVD/Blu-Ray player has to support playing MP4 to play them from the disc and its navigation has to be programmed to accept MP4 input from optical disc.  But, if it does, you shouldn't have problems playing the MP4's back from a disc.
