Yes I'm trying to create DVD-Video discs that the playstation will recognise.
I've used a combination of various tools for experimentation, and I'm reasonably sure that at least one of the approaches should work.
The reason I eventually tried copying a DVD that did work was to avoid the possibility that I'd made a mistake with the video format/layout.
So in theory that should have removed the possibility of non-compliant video, as the files I wrote were compliant to start with.
Ideally I'd like to have been able to test my results in a DVD-video player, but I don't have one
I've tried copies to DVD+R (which I suspect the playstation can't read anyway ... even with the correct booktype),
and to DVD-RW (which I thought should have worked).
I've been thinking that perhaps I should buy some DVD-R media and try those.
Thanks for the tovid link, I'll see what I can produce with it.
