Brasero trying to converting MP4 to MP2 using Mint 13

Postby cicero01 on Sat Jan 19, 2013 7:38 am

I decided to create a DVD using Brasero which is pre-installed and it seemed straightforward until I asked it to burn the files (MP4) to DVD.

It then downloaded some additional stuff off the net (although I'm not sure for what reason) and then said it was going to convert the MP4 files to MP2!

I assume this is because it can't handle MP4 but anyway after about ten minutes it had done 6MiB out of 3000 MiB and although apparently still working this number didn't change. I finally cancelled the process after another 20 minutes during which time nothing had moved on.

Can anyone suggest another package that will produce a DVD from my MP4 files (other than Windows 7 on the wife's laptop which seems to deal with MP4 files OK?

Have just moved all the MP4 files from a USB stick to Mint and don't want to have to move them back again!

Cheers.

Brasero is awful.

"k3b" is the best linux DVD writer; there're others like "xfburn".
Mint 17/Xfce/fluxbox & Mint 16/Xfce/fluxbox
