    Lightbulb How to Burn 4 Movies on 1 DVD

    Ok..so i was visiting my Local CD Wallah and saw some DVD's with 2-4-7 Even 14 Movies on 1 DVD ...that Ticked me to Do some thing Similer...so i Turned to My First & Best Resource GOOGLE ....and Found many Diff ways ..all Too Complicated ...and none up to the Mark ...SO Started R&D ...tryed many many wayz.....and Failed ....so i realised that There is no ALL in 1 Soultion for this .....so Experimented with Many Combinations and finally Volla!! ....found a Basic Way to Do so .....so thaught to share the same with you all .....

    Please Remember its illegal to Backup Movies on DVD ..unless you Legally Own Them!!!

    Ok After The Bold Warning Lets Start ....Jot down the List of tools needed ..

    1 ) 3-4 Movie Files which you want to Cram in 1 DVD
    2 ) Nero Vision you can download it from here http://www.softwarepatch.com/utiliti...n-express.html
    3) DVD Santa ..you can download it from here
    http://www.download.com/DVDSanta/300...-10291136.html
    4) A Fast PC (p4+ Least 1 GB Ram) ..to make the Encoding Faster
    5) Atleast 5-10 GB of Free HDD Space
    6) DVD Writer to Burn your Compilation on the Disk


    Before Starting Remember the Thumb Rule ..Dont Expect "608 x 332" OR "688 x 284" Resolution Movies in the DVD ..there will be some Quality Loss ..so bare with it

    Ok so lets Start ...there are 2 Parts of this Tute...1st Part is Encoding Movies with DVD Santa & 2 nd part is Adding Visual Effects & Authering & Burning with Nero Vision

    1) Install / Open DVD Santa


    Click on Video Files 2 DVD

    2) It will bring you to This Window ...



    Note there are Many Settings on the Window..we will come back to these Later ......

    First Click on Add Media-> Browse And add files ..for First Timers i will suggest Dont Add More that 2-3 Movies

    Note : Dont Worry about the Size/Resolution of Movies DVD Santa will take care of them

    3) Now You have added the Files...lets Move to the Settings Part ...



    1st Change Video Standard from NTSC to PAL
    Now i have tryed to Fiddle around the Other Settings but there was no significant Difference so lets Keep the Resolution Settings As it is..unless you have a Plasma / LCD TV ...Keep the Next Setting as Full Screen 4:3
    Next Click on Advanced Settings

    4) Now as you see There are many Adv Options Available..



    so Unless you know about them lets keep them as it is ...we will consentrate on the Target Disk Size ....Now there are many ways to Set the Disk size...you can Individually select each movie and target it to a 650 MB or 1.4 GB Size..and add the files later on to Project..but for Simplicity sake ..lets just take the 4.7 GB Size ...Click 4.7 GB then OK

    4 ) Now all set Hit Make DVD ..lets keep the Defalt Destination Path as it is ...

    Now youe Video's are being Encoded



    Please dont make phun of me if u have noticed the Movie name as "Jodha Akbar" ...

    5) After Enoding you will get this Msg..hit NO



    6) All Done ..you will see these files in your Folder


    Lets keep them aside for a While ....

    Lets More to 2nd Part Now...

    Start Nero Vision

    Click on Make DVD Menu



    Browse to your TempDVD Filder & Then Video_TS Folder...



    You will Notice That Insted of 10-15 files there are only 2-3 Files (Depending on the No of Movies you have added)...Add All of them

    Once your Files are Added Click on Video Options & Under general Select India (Pal)



    Now There are More Option under DVD Video Button...but Dont Fiddle with them unless you know what you are doing



    Next you will be taken to the Display /Menu Templet Section..



    Here you can select how your Menues will look..you can play with Layout..hedder-footer ...just let loose your Creativity ...



    After Done Playing ..Hit Next and then Burn



    Done your DVD is ready to Be Played on your Standard DVD Player

    Ohh Dont Forget to Put Blank DVD in the DVD Writer

    Here is a Screen Shot of a DVD i made with all 4 Parts of SAW



    ...i know it looks Crude ..but guys...Remember you are not here to comment my Compilation but..to learn from it

    Please Remember ..its the Simplets Way to Make 4-in-1 DVD....there may be some more Advanced/professional Option ...but have tryed to make it as simple as possible.....Hope it helps ..Kindly PM me if you have any Queries..

    The problem with this tut is that he uses all paid commercial software.
    I want a tut which uses freeware.

    I was recommended this software by a friend of mine.It is called ffmpeg2theora.It is like DOS based.It really compresses the video like anything.But it wont be played in DVD players as the format is .ogg .But wud be gud for making movie backups.

    why not just leave as like AVI format and
    use nero vision to burn it out

    1. Yes you can use NeroVision (SHAREWARE) to encode and burn more than one movie to a DVD.
    2. DVD Santa is SHAREWARE. If you run linux you can use DeVeDe which is free and open source.

    same here but there still are ways to atleast cram 2 movies without virtually any quallity loss...... DVD Shrink is one simple way..... what it does is make you sacrifice on the menues, multiple subtitles (u only need eng),trailers, multiple audio track (again u only need eng), audio codes(you can skip the DOLBY when you have DTS.....this reduced noticible space)..... and audio channels as well..... you can choose to downmix audio to 2.1 to save more space(if so u wish).........in all the video quality remains untouched and you still have 2 movies in one DVD.

    I did this on my Saving Private Ryan DVD9 (8GB DVD). I used DVD Shrink to cram the movie to a conventional 4.7GB DVD5 without ANY loss in video quality.

    I agree dats a gud tut but instead of usin da dvdsanta u can simply use nero vision. Its a damn powerful software but codecs need to be installed. I recommend u first install K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and then u can use Nero Vision to make all sorts of video discs.
