  2. FLAC and AAC

    FLAC vs WAV ; they are lossless, but flac is compressed. For the same audio: flac 19132 ko wav 46735 ko AAC (m4a) vs mp3. The quality is better for AAC with the same bitrate. if you want the audio of a Youtube video, you can get the AAC directly
  3. FLAC and AAC

    Could you both be a little more specific on this request? For example, what experiences have led to the suggestion.
  4. FLAC and AAC

    I would like also. For flac there is also a workaround.

    For the BR Player: Two possibilities. A "remote user" would either play MP4 files straight off the Data DVD (via the Media Player) or transfer from DVD to usb storage (on a PC) and plug that into the BR Player's Media Player. Either way will work and as far as I am aware, no quality issues. It is possible that some "upscaling" dvd players will do the same thing. It would be nice to hear from someone who can confirm this? For the TV: If the TV has a media player then the MP4 has to be transfered to usb storage and plugged into the TV to be read by the Media Player. It does not have to be a "usb stick". You can plug an external HDD or SSD into the TV and it will work. My present Sony TV works with a HDD up to 500Gb. DG P.S. You need to distinguish between conventional DVDs and Data DVDs. A conventional DVD plays at the much reduced resolution whereas the MP4 file played via a Media Player is capable of up to HD resolution. Conventional DVDs are subjected to TV Safe Zone issues whereas MP4 files played via a Media Player are not.

    Dave, Please see my response to your latest post in a DUPLICATE original posting within the GENERAL section of the Forum. CONFUSION REIGNS John

    Dave, i want people to play MP4s from the DVD. I don’t understand what you mean by being able to transfer to USB for playing on a TV MEDIA PLAYER. I am guessing now but is a TV Media Player like Windows Media Player or VLC on a computer but on a Modern TV ? If this is correct then I think you are saying that both methods may be a possible way of viewing dependant on the users hardware. To make myself clear the user may be able to play it like a conventional DVD or play it through a Media Player. Presumably they would have to load the DVD into a computer then copy the MP4’s to a USB stick, plug that into their TV and then play it through the aforementioned Media Player? Surely not! Apart from my ignorance of this subject I think we are getting into a further mess here. I am responding to this within the GENERAL section of the Forum though previous responses have all been in the TROUBLESHOOTING section. For some reason two versions of my original post exist. I don’t know how this happened but I recently posted in the GENERAL area version requesting the Moderator to remove this version and somehow your last post was directed there! John

    John, Just to clarify what your aim is. Do you want to play the MP4s from the dvd or do you intend that the MP4s be transfered to usb for playing on a TV Media Player. Both are possible depending on the users equipment. DG
  10. Hi, Views and advice please. Firstly, is it worth purchasing software for burning MP4’s to DVD or perhaps using one of the “free” offers? Secondly, have you any suggestions in either the free or paid for categories? (Perhaps more importantly, which should I avoid?} I would like to be able to create my own menu page using my own image. I have an occasional need to make multi copies. I would prefer a Mac option though I do have Parallels and also run Windows but when Igor comes up with a Mac version of PTE I’ll be “pulling down the blinds”on Windows. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks John

    Thanks that's what I thought Dave. All this talk of streaming and USB made me wonder if I was totally out of date. I'm going to make a separate post on subject of burning/menu software. John

    MODERATOR Should this not be removed from here as another copy exists in Troubleshooting. John
  13. VIDEO BUILDER

    John, With a modern BR Player you can write the MP4s to a Dvd as data and play via the Player in the BR Player. DG

    Hi, Confusion strikes again I'm afraid. I accept I should start with an MP4 file. If I don't use a DVD/BR disc how do I provide people with a copy of my show? I can't believe that I give them a USB stick or expect them to download it from some source. Am I missing something? Cheers. John

    I tend to look at this differently. You say some people may be attracted to PTE by the fact a DVD is possible. How many would be tempted by obsolete technology from all those who view the software as potential customers? Impossible to guess? How many would be turned off by the fact that old, out of date technology is still included. You could make an argument that keeping DVD authoring can make the software look dated and old. How much time, money and effort should go into making it work efficiently, when the ground beneath your feet is constantly changing? It makes no sense and we also know that from questions on this forum and elsewhere about quality. Most who do use a DVD are surprised by the quality of the result they get. It has to go. DVD RIP
  16. I would like it if PTE would allow to import audio clips of types FLAC and AAC. For AAC there is a workaround, but not a nice one. BTW: In the Online Help, I cannot find the information which audio types are accepted by PTE. It would be nice to see it.

    Having read through this thread I agree with most that's been said about the future of DVD and whether it's a good choice for outputting slideshows. However it is a feature offered in PicturesToExe, which may attract some people when deciding to buy the software, and should therefore work efficiently. Geoff

  19. Saving all the styles together

    Dave...Yes, I see now. If I highlighted all of the keyframes for the cube in O&A, and changed the Zoom for the Control Frame, all sides of the cube changed. I'd would have figured that out. Nice work. Gary
  20. Saving all the styles together

    Remember that the original was not my Style. I don't make Cubes that way. All that you needed to do was Zoom the "Control Frame" in my Modified Style. DG
  21. Saving all the styles together

    Dave, Yes, I think I was not being too clear. I didn't want to just 'zoom' in on the images. I wanted to increase the actual size of the cube. At 100%, it was too small. I tried 150%, too big. So I have settled on 130%. Seems ok. When I tried the adjustments on other cube styles I had, nothing seems to work. With your 'Cube Modified' style version, the 'Frame1', etc., adjustments are working to increase the size of the cube. The 'Framing' helps to adjust the image within each of the cube's sides. Thanks for the help. Someone else who has PTE asked me how to do it so the discussion has helped me to to understand it and get it working. Gary
  22. Saving all the styles together

    Did you just want to make the whole cube bigger? DG
  23. Saving all the styles together

    Dave... I got it to work. But, with your 'PTE Cube Modified' style, I changed the 'Frame1; Frame2; and Frame3 ' to the 150%, not the actual image icon, as you are showing. I did use the Framing to adjust the cropping of the image within the Frame 1,2 and 3. Seems to work now. With the other Cube Styles I had, this method did not work...not sure why. Thanks... Gary

    I think the DVD engine is licensed. Maybe a good compromise is to keep the option to build the .iso image and then use an external burner like imgburn. I have not burned a DVD slideshow in probably the last two years. I rarely watch movies from DVD or Blu-ray. Almost everything is streamed these days. Tom
  25. Saving all the styles together

    Use my PTE Cube Modified in my last post.
  26. Saving all the styles together

    Using Project Option aspect ratio of 16:9. Here is what happens after I increase the size of each image from 100% to 150%. Gary Cube_Test-2.mp4

    Your Cube test style works perfectly. What size/aspect ratio images are you using?? PTE Cube Modified.ptestyle DG
