Unhappy Sony DVD player would not play disc


Dell 2400 Dimension OS Ubuntu 12.04 1Gb Ram.

Using Get_iPlayer I recorded a programme from BBC and saved on my computer.

This recording played back OK on my PC.

Copied this recording to a DVD using K3B (tried both DVD-R & DVD+R)

Both (DVD's) played back OK on my PC and a Window PC running Vista.

I would like to play them back on a Sony DVP-NS39 (Neither DVD-R or DVD+R would work)

The Sony DVP-NS39 said in both cases No Audio, No Video or No Data.

Please can you help me with this problem?

Thanks

Richard

The file you recorded is a .flv file, so if you just copy it to a DVD, all that is IS a file. A computer knows what to do with it...a DVD player doesn't. You need DVD authoring software. A brief search on Google would show you how to create a DVD:
http://askubuntu.com/questions/10353...ideos-on-a-dvd

The DeVeDe software recognizes .flv files and will convert them, and burn them to DVD.

Thanks to TBOne, the DeVeDe software did to job in the conversion but I had an error from it that it could not find the file that it had just converted. So I pointed K3B at the file and it burnt DVD OK.

I would like to ask you some more questions about recording from or streaming from BBC or ITV Ch4 etc. Is that ok?

I know nothing of the formats from BBC, ITV, or Ch4, except what I read from the documentation of the software you posted. That would be the best place for you to start. ANYTHING you record needs to be burned as a DVD, not just as files, so no matter the source, you treat it the same way.

Also, be advised that asking about 'getting around' recording restrictions is against LQ Rules, before you post additional questions.
