MKV question

Hi, and appologies if this has been answered, and I'm sure it has but I couldn't find the answer anywhere .... old age hey ;D

 

Is it possible to burn an 8Gb MKV file to a DVD-DL disc, I have tried a couple of times but when playing the disc on my stand alone player it stops at what I would expect is the point where it jumps to the next layer.

By the way I'm using Verbatim disc as I always do.

 

Thanks in advance for any help.

Only if it reads from the UDF file system.

 

If you put a single 8GB file on a disc using ISO9660 + Joliet + UDF and it doesn't read the UDF file system, it may only see the file as being 4GB in size - that's the 'normal' limit for the ISO9660 / Joliet file systems.

 

I guess you could test it out by burning a disc with *just* the UDF file system being present and see if it can read a (below) 4GB MKV on a DVD-RW or DVD+RW (no discs wasted). If it can, try your 8GB MKV on a DVD+R DL.
