|Requires QuickTime. Some files may cause a QuickTime Warning message to appear stating that the file uses an unsupported MPEG-4 profile; this message appears when you import the file, preview, and burn a disc. However, you should be able to create discs using these files.|
|Media Center TV Show|
|Windows Media Video|
Only WMV files that are not copy-protected are supported.
Note: Always try to use the highest-quality source material. MPEG compression relies on similarities between frames to reduce the file size. If the video source contains a lot of noise, there will be fewer similarities between frames, and so lots of disc space will be wasted just to reproduce this noise.
MPEG Specific Data
Blu-ray-compliant video settings for MPEG-2
DVDit Pro HD "passes through" DVD-compliant MPEG-1 and MPEG-2 video and Blu-ray-compliant MPEG-2 video without transcoding when you burn a disc, which greatly reduces the burn time. Media Center TV Show files contain DVD-compliant MPEG video.
Other file types (and MPEG files that are not compliant) are transcoded using the transcoder settings in the Project Settings dialog. You can also force DVDit Pro HD to re-encode compliant video.
