    Help 9GB File on to Disc

    Is there a way of burning a 9GB file containing several MP4’s on to a single DVD? I considered using dual layers until I realised they only have 8.5Gb.

    I'm not sure about 9gb but you could 'overburn' onto dual layer dvds for Xbox 360 games back in the day. You had to have a specific burner etc so in theory I guess could be done. Have you tried Imgurn?

    COuld see if and overburn would do it else Bluray (which obviously will cost for discs and burner) or get a USB stick cheap as chips these days, without knowing why you need it on DVD medium and not split over 2-3 DVD's hard to advise?

    If you need them all on one disc then you can use Handbrake to re-encode them with a slightly lower bitrate to get them to <8.5GB

    9GB on DVD is never gonna happen, even using Dual Layer. Overburn will fail and truncating will lose data.

    Stimpy offered the best advice. Just re-encode each MP4 down very slightly until you've shaved off 500MB.

    It will be the sound in each file that's easiest to shrink down, so I'd just re-encode the encapsuled audio stream.

    I'd do what Dejavu says mate. If quality isn't that much of an issue grab the old Windows Media Encoder and just reduce the bitrate a bit and batch run the re-encode. Shouldn't take long and will give decent enough results.

    Okay thanks guys. There is no audio on the files. They are recordings of traffic at junctions and roundabouts recorded from one of our mobile camera's. I need to send these videos out to developers and fellow planners so it will be a regular thing and not just a one off.

    I'll try handbrake as I'm familiar with that software and see how I get on.
