Burning DIVXs
    #1248204 - 01/25/03 03:18 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Not sure if this is the appropriate forum, but when you dl and burn DIVXs, how are you supposed to burn them when 95% of them are around 715mb and a CD-R only holds 700mb? Does the disk actually hold a little more, or must the DIVX be compressed a little more?

how are you burning them??? Using nero to encode to VCD?

If so you might need to split the file in half. I dont know of a program that can split AVI but alucard ((sp?), and im sure there are other proggies out there that can do it) will split MPEG's. So use an avi2mpeg or vcd proggy to convert to mpeg then sp;it it and burn it to 2 cds.

I hate divx shit, everyone should use mpeg2!!!!!!!!!!

what program did you download the files with, kazaa?
What program do you plan on using for burning these?
Theres other types of cdr's you can buy that hold more I do believe, also better quality!

The quality isnt gonna change...

Quality would be limited by the rate it got ripped at. And the max rate of format yer burning (vcd, or svcd where you can pick a bitrate).

Media would have nothing to do with quality of it. We are in digital now...

its simple, ussally they will fit on a 700 meg CD (even if they are 15 or so megs over)

every disk actully has a few extra megs on it, and if you finalize the CD you get to use thoes extra megs. and thus thats how itll fit on your disk.

be careful tho, if you scratch the CD in the slightest itll be unplayable when burned to the max this way.

also if your burner allows it, they have larger capacity disks, from 750-900.

I dled them w/ kazaa, but I dunno what I can burn them with as every v. of nero I find actually isn't nero, so I need to find a dl for it on a site or ftp.

You couldn't be more wrong. In windows explorer I have a file that says it's 715,264 KB, right click on the file, click properties and it says its really 698 megs (732,430,336 bytes). This is a 120 gig NTFS hard drive, but I only have 111 gigs free. This has to do with cluster sizes settings for your file systems. So even though it says is 715,264kb, inactuality it is only 698 megabytes, which will fit on a 700 meg cd.

Every file on a PC uses at least one "cluster" of space on a hard drive?regardless of how small the file is. A cluster is a group of disk sectors. The operating system assigns a unique number to each cluster and then keeps track of files according to which clusters they use. The size or capacity of a cluster is dependent upon the size of the hard disk drive?or the partition if the drive is divided into more than one physical or logical partition.

Huh?

He was right though that a CD has more capacity than the nominal value printed on the cover....

DivX is crap. its only popular because its a hack. and its not even a good hack. Id much rather kick it with my mpeg's anyday, after all...you can stream mpegs, but not avis.

as to your problem, the best solution would be to break it in half. most movies i download are in two 600 meg sections, so idk what teh deal is with ur movies....
