Game of Thrones

Can I create my own DVD's of Game of Thrones from MP4 files? I the first 3 seasons & half of season 4 at the moment. I'll be using single layer discs, cause that's what I have right now. Or, could I have more episodes per disc with DL discs.

 

All suggestions welcomed & appreciated!  :)

Not with imgburn. It only burns what you feed it. If you burn the mp4's you'll end up with a data disc with mp4's on it. If you want a DVD you'll first need something to convert the files to a valid DVD structure.

If you have a DVD/Blu-Ray player that supports playing files such as MP4 natively, you can just burn a series of MP4 files to single layer DVD's.  However, as was previously said, if you want DVD Video out of the MP4 files, you'll need a conversion software like ConvertXToDVD to create a VIDEO_TS first.

If you want DVD Video you need an authoring program like DVDStyler or DVDFlick.

Consider that SL discs can hold 120 minutes, DL discs can hold 240 minutes at standard quality.

So, if I want more than 2 episodes per disc use the DL disc?

There are a variety of factors that dictate how many "episodes" you can fit on an SL disc.  It depends on 1.) the running time 2.) the compression/codec used on the source file and 3.) the application you're using.  For instance, it's not unusual for ConvertXToDVD to fit 4 "1 hour" episodes on an SL without any significant video quality loss.

 

The 120 minute label applied to SL DVD's was for standalone DVD video recorders like Panasonic's.  And even then, you could choose higher compression rates and get 4 and 6 hours on an SL, but with significant video quality loss.  There's even a 1 hour option for even better video quality.

Thanks for that info. I'm trying to get as close to the box set disc format as possible without buying the whole set! ;) Too much $$$$

And, as I said before, if your player supports playing MP4 files natively, you can probably fit an entire season on an SL disc depending on the size of the MP4's.  However, if you're going for a DVD playable disc, it would vary how many episodes you could fit on a disc.  1 hour episodes are generally between 42 and 45 minutes, but that's factoring in commercials, which Game Of Thrones wouldn't.  So, you should be able to fit comfortably the 2 episodes per SL disc mentioned already.  Again, it depends on a few factors you'd have to experiment with.
