DVD for Big Screen LED TV

Recommended Posts

I created/converted an AVI video to DVD.  The video plays fine on LCD and PC LED monitor.  When played on a Big Screen (Samsung) LED the colors saturate within a few seconds of operation.  Any suggestions as to what may be wrong with my method of conversion/creation from AVI format to DVD format?

Hi

If the DVD looks OK on a PC monitor the problem may be your big screen TV or possibly the DVD player you are using. Is this the same for all DVDs played on the TV or just the one created via VP?  If it's the former case it might mean that the set's colour saturation may need adjusting.

PS> Just came on this from another forum related to Samsung sets and oversaturated colours....

" on the samsung displays.... start in movie / cinema mode. then make sure the color gamut selection (or whatever it is called) is in auto and not manual / native. then adjust the color control to your liking. At this point if Red is "over saturated" thank the broadcaster as it is not the fault of your Sammy. fun stuff!! "

The Samsung LED TV works fine with retail DVD and cable input.  I tried a different DVD player and the problem remains the same.  I am reasonably sure the problem lies with either my methodology for making the AVI to DVD or the raw DVD (Walmart) itself.  It is my methodology that I want to get refined first.

I am still working through this conundrum.  I have discovered that if I set the DVD player to 'Fast Forward' step of '2' or more the plays properly although it plays at a faster frame rate.  This begs the question; How do I know/control the 'frame rate' that is being used to create the DVD?  I am setting the creation of the DVD to NTSC.

If the AVI isn't personal or lengthy please upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or the like and link it here.  Someone will attempt to dupe your result.

I have no idea of how to accomplish the task "upload it to Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive or the like and link it here".  The AVI is approximately 47 minutes in length.  The AVI is posted to YouTube, Google 'YouTube Robins Nest composite'.

It appears that DVD Movie creation is preset, with no user options.

The YouTube video (54+ minutes) was downloaded and saved as an mp4, imported into Videopad and exported as a DVD MOVIE disc (720 x 480).

It looks natural - no oversaturation - both on the PC and on a Samsung 51" TV.

Of course, this wasn't the original file.  Here, for a short time, is a link to the final twenty-minutes of the DVD.  It may take a minute to download or play.

Within the VideoPad environment I converted the AVI to MP4 then exported as DVD Movie (720 X 480) then end result is a movie that saturates the colors within a few seconds of play.  As mentioned earlier if I speed up the play of the movie the saturation ceases.  My next try will be with a different DVD disk media.

Consider...

Placing the AVI on the timeline, then splitting it and deleting most of the file, so only a single thirty-second segment remains.

Click FILE|SAVE AS PORTABLE PROJECT, saving to a convenient folder on your PC.

Sign up for a free account at GoogleDrive or DropBox, then upload the file you saved and publicly share it, posting the link here.

This will allow folks to duplicate your efforts, and note whether the saturation issue appears.

I think it is best to restate the issue that I am having.  Rather than identifying the problem as 'saturation' I think it would be best to describe the issue as 'digitalisation' or 'pixelation'.  The DVD video appears on the Big Screen LED TV as would a that provided by a dirty VHS tape or a VHS player with a dirty playback head.  I have couple of sample videos; 17-05-08-Robin.avi  and  test02.vpj loaded into 'Drop Box'.  I have no idea as to how to link these files back to this forum.  It remains a mystery to me why these files are crappy on the Big Screen LED TV but work fine on my LED PC monitor and LCD TV.

The URL that you posted above does not explain the 'link' process.  Please define "Post the link here".  I do not understand what you are asking of me.  What would the 'link' look like?

This request; "Enter the email addresses of the people you want to invite" is the specific that I do not know how to answer.

Bob,  The link would be an http://  address.  Instead of mailing it to someone, paste it into your message here.

If it isn't apparent what that link is, mail it to yourself.  It will appear in the message and you can copy/paste it here.

That exercise proved meaningless.  I sent/shared the file through Dropbox and received the message below.

The 'From:' was and https:// about 50 characters long that could not be recognized.

The process falls apart for me as;

per #2;  What is the Dropbox link?

per#4; where do I find the addresses of the people I want to invite?

 

  1. Select Share…

  2. Select Share... on a Windows computer
  3.  
  4. Enter the email addresses of the people you want to invite.

Good job on the link to the VPJ file, Bob. Please do the same for the AVI (or a snippet thereof, as it's a lengthy file).

The VPJ is a data instruction file, and contains no video or audio.

It would appear that I have solved my problem with regard to messy video on big screen LED TV.

After I upgraded tp VPJ 5.03 and use Verbatim 4.7-6x DVD media the DVDs play without issue.  Not really sure what the real fix is.
