Specs: Windows 7
I have a DVD/VHS player that will copy either way. I have some old movies that I converted to DVD, but they weren't anything special. I also have the program Movie Edit Pro 15 that allowes to take out the commercials and put in chapters, and make menus. I have it all ready with only two files on it and when I went to burn my DVD wasn't big enough. What program out there will compress a MVP file so that I can burn it to a DVD? Please Help!!!

Compressing the MVP file wont help. If you are burning a standard DVD with chapters it means that the movie will be converted to the standard MPG 2 format and that is where the size is determined, not by the size of the original file. You have a few options. Reduce the length of the movie, split the movie and put it on 2 discs or use a dual layer disc.

Another option is to lower the video bitrate. You'll lose some quality, but it"ll result in a smaller file size. Some conversion software has options to use either constant or variable bitrates. Variable bitrates usually result in smaller file sizes. Using Procoder, I often lower video bitrates (and use VBR) to fit movies onto a single DVD.

Please let us know if you found someone's advice to be helpful.
