What did you create in Premiere Elements 13 on Windows 7 (assumed 64 bit) - DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc or AVCHD format on DVD disc.
Although you can use a regular DVD burner to create the AVCHD format on DVD disc, it will not play back on a regular DVD player. You need
a Blu-ray player or one of those multi media players whose specifications include support for AVCHD format on DVD disc.
So, first order of things is for you to confirm which type of product you produced using Premiere Elements 13.
Also, be aware that stop markers in Premiere Elements (any version) burn to AVCHD on DVD or Blu-ray disc format on Blu-ray disc do not
function at playback. Those stop markers work only for DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc.
Please let us know if any of the above targeted your issue. If not, more details please, and we will think about this some more.
Also, please review the specification of your TV's DVD player to verify its specifications as to type of disc supported as well as the format on
that particular disc.
I used "burn to DVD" to create the dvd. The blank DVD used is DVD-R, I tried it only on one of my dvd players that is hook to my tv. I will try it on the other one I have. It is a different brand so maybe that will make a
I recorded the video using MPEG-4 and not AVCHD, if that helps.
Thanks for the follow up and ruling out the AVCHD format on DVD disc considerations.
We will be watching for your results related to playback of the DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc on another DVD Player. Have there been more
than one of your DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc products that have failed the TV DVD player test?
There are rare instances where the disc needs an "AUDIO_TS Folder" on the disc with the "VIDEO_TS Folder". If it comes to
that, then we will need to do a Premiere Elements burn to folder and take the VIDEO_TS Folder from the saved folder into the ImgBurn program where it can be
put to DVD disc with an AUDIO_TS Folder. This AUDIO_TS Folder is essentially a blank folder that we make and name AUDIO_TS and add to
the ImgBurn compilation before the burn to disc there. I do not think it will come to this, but....
There are two folders on the DVD after it is burned. I have burned three different discs to make sure it wasn’t the CD.
Thanks for the reply.
Good information to have that you had the same TV DVD player playback problem with at least 3 of the DVD-VIDEO on DVD that you generated
from that project with the same batch of DVD discs....but just that one DVD player involved for now.
Looking forward to the results when you try for playback of the discs on other DVD players.
The Premiere Elements burn to disc DVD produces two folders, as you found, OpenDVD and VIDEO_TS.
We will be watching for your further results.
Thanks again for the follow up.
Good news, I tried the finished DVD on a different DVD/blu-Ray player and it worked. The weird thing is that they both players are Sony players that play both blu rays and dvds.
Well, I am glad it wasn’t the software!
Thanks for your replies!!
Thanks for the follow up with the great news of success with your DVD-VIDEO on DVD playback. Great job identifying the second player for troubleshooting purposes.
When your time permits, you might want to revisit the first player and check the settings to make sure they were not a factor in it not playing your DVD-VIDEO on DVD disc.
