Problems with dvd's burnt with Linux


I have worked on this problem for days and cannot see where the problem lies. I'm running OpenMandriva Lx 2014 x86_64 with upgraded kernel 4.1.15, I start with an mp4 video, use ffmpeg v2.5.9 to create an mpg file, then use dvdauthor v0.7.1 to create the dvd structure, use mkisofs to create the iso image and growisofs to burn it at speed 1. The entire process works flawlessly, I watch the dvd on my computer and it is beautiful. When we try the dvd on any player other than my computer it glitches like mad. Is it possibly the dvd medium itself? I use Memorex dvd+r's, always have and never had a problem before. Anyone else experienced this or have any clue what may be causing it?

Can you test the DVDs with another OS?

Unless you're using a really old burner, try it without the speed option and let it default. Then see if your issue goes away. Otherwise you might be exceeding the specs of the DVD format supported by the other players. Like mp3 audio in NTSC which isn't in the NTSC spec, although is in PAL and supported by many players. And various bitrates that might be too high for older players. Back when I authored dvds, I used the mjpegtools not ffmpeg to do the video creation. I'd still used ffmpeg to mux in the audio and make the container format though.

Fairly new burner, I tried it at first using K3b at full speed, had problems, then went to the cli and throttled it down as far as it would go, still problems. Never used mjpegtools, may look into that.

Check the "VERIFY" box when using k3b. I've had some shady media that I didn't verify. When it wouldn't play in my cars CD player I held it up to notice that it looked more like frosted glass than digital media. As in, I could see my hand through the disc when in the presence of sun light. As far as speed, let it auto (if that doesn't fail). Otherwise 4x or 8x might be safer bets than 1x these days. BITD you had to burn it at the same speed of the capability of your dvd player.

Probably a bitrate issue IMO. I seem to recall around 5kbps for the video and uncompressed audio PCM bitd. To come in at or under 6.5kbps or something, been a very long time. I had just gotten to the point of counting the audio samples relative to video frames to ensure a perfect DVD when I ran out of money to travel to the things to record and most of the things that I wanted to record ceased to exist in my region. But I was more audio first, video as an after thought. Brasero is probably a good bet for authoring discs these days. Unless you need some fancy menu-ing stuff not possible in brasero.

I'm going to try a different dvd burner, as that is the only other thing I've changed, besides upgrading my OS. It appears as if the new OS is using the same programs and almost same versions of those programs as the old OS to process and burn media. My last Asus burner went out on me so I bought and installed an exact duplicate to replace it, haven't tried it until recently when I discovered this problem. If that winds up being the case groovy, if not we'll try a few more ideas. Thanks!
