HELP Sizzle wont do anything on my mac!

Post by eden »

Hi. I'm trying to burn dvds following the guide but although Sizzle downloads correctly and the application opens, it just won't give me a NEW pg to do anything with. Have deleted and downloaded 3 times from diff sources now - any ideas?


I've got a Core Duo Intel mac running on OSX 10.4.11.

Hello!
You guys might be interested in this iTV2DVD program I've made. It makes archiving your Topfield recordings on a DVD very easy. It even generates a simple menu and includes subtitles and multiple audio tracks.

Have you tried selecting "Convert only one audio track" in streamclip Preferences? This fixed the problem for me, with a setup exactly like yours.

I've been following the very helpful guide to burning a DVD using my MacBook.

Strangely enough Dr. Who and using MpegStreamClip & Sizzle it worked a treat.

However when I tried to do a similar thing for the film Sean of the Dead off from ITV2. I've tried to convert the film to a MPEG and I can't get the audio to playback on Quicktime, but it's fine on MEPG StreamClip and VLC. I don't want to burn it yet,but instead store it as a MPEG and perhaps use iSquint to load it to my iPod.

I was wondering if it is similar to when I use to use ProjectX to de-mux a film it would produce two audio files and sometimes the audio track appeared in one or the other depending on the TV channel.

Is there a way to select this the audio track in MPEGStreamClip or it is something else that I need to live with and use Project X to demux and recombine?

Many thank,

Brian

This is a fantastic program. I've used it several times to build dvds for friends and family.
Cheers Simon
