>>I have recompressed the video as much as I could, and I have recompressed the audio files as aac and also tried m4v<<
Neither of those will help as both are incompatible with the DVD standard.
>>it is saying the bitrate is too high on a video that didn't have a too high a bitrate last year<<
What bit rate did you use? How long is the video (total run time for both videos)?
Did you use one of the available online bit rate calculators? http://www.google.com/search?client=opera&q=dvd+bit+rate+calculator&sourceid=ope ra&ie=utf-8&oe=utf-8&channel=suggest
Also make sure you're encoding the audio as Dolby Digital (.ac3). .AIF files will take up close to 10x space as an ac3 equivalent.
Ugg, this is what I get when I type a message when I am tired
On the audio formats, I meant to say that I tried ac3 and m4a. In the past I have gotten both to work.
As far as the video I am using One pass CBR with an average bitrate of 6.2mbps
I have also tried one pass avg. bit rate of 6 max bit rate of 7.5
actually there are 5 video, three of which the videos are being used twice (once as a music video with and without vocal) with a total run time of 25:10.
I also have 1.39gig of ROM data on the disc as well.
I ran this through the calculator, but I am not sure what this is telling me.
First, try resetting your dvdsp preferences using digital rebellion's preference manager.
If that doesn't work, try putting each video in it's own dvdsp project and do a build to see which video is causing the problem. Then try recompressing the problem video.
If each individual video works ok, do you have any menus with video in them? You might try rebuilding the menus.
You might also have a corrupt dvdsp project. You can export any menus as "item descriptions" and bring them into a new project. And again, doing this step by step to see if one of the menus is causing the problem.
