I posted the following in the DVDlab forum after having problems trying to compile a DVD over 3GB. I used the kvcd template with:
MPEG-1 352x240 29.97fps CQ 70, Layer-2 48000Hz 64kbps

I realize DVDLab was not designed to use Mpeg-1 files but I have a bunch of lo-res TV episodes I am trying to put on DVD. It works reliably when making a disk up to 3GB but anythng over seems to bring a "serious" compile error.

I have spent all day experimenting and recompiling and the only time that finishes is if the result is no bigger than about 3.1GB
I am putting together about 40 twenty minute episodes with menus.
I took out the menus and it still failed.
I compiled with dummy video and it worked.
I cut out the movie it was quitting on and it still failed (if over 3GB)
I cut out some middle files and it would compile the files it quit on fine (if total under 3GB)
It compiles all the way to 3 GB and then quits at the end of a movie (The vobs are there but no other needed files)
If I try the alternate engine it quits right after the menus and before the first muxing.

Is there some kind of ceiling at 3GB or 720 minutes? If I cut out just 2 episodes it works, but I want the whole series on one dvd and there is still 1.7GB of free space that I plan to use with longer seasons of other projects.
Any other mpeg-1 compilers out there who have made large DVDs with the KVCD template.

I did with no problem a DVD with Tmpenc Author with 38 KVCD MPEG-1 in each (near 14 hours of movie), animated menus, and all the stuff. And it was other 4.3 GB (I had to shrink it a little with dvdshrink before burnig).

I remember that I add a problem once on DVD-Lab because I used a temp directory that was'nt on the same disc ! I just uncheck "use temp" and all was okay !
The symtom was the same has yours : dummy compile was okay, full compile failed (but I did not chek if the size was 3GB or more).

I'm going to do the same with MPEG2.
No probs so far, as I didn't start authoring yet (shame on me )

You shouldn't use MPEG2 for low bitrates.

I tried unchecking TEMP in DVDlab but had the same error.

Looks like I will have to try Tmpenc Author. I just put a lot of work into the DVD lab menus (after I had success with smaller disks) so I was hoping to figure it out.

Anyone else have experience with mpeg1 and DVDlab with disks over 3gb or 14 hours?

Well I used Tmpgenc Author and the mpeg1 project compiled just fine over 3GB. I even did a different series that was over 5 GB that I hope to shrink with acceptable results (thanks for the idea, Dialhot).

The only drawback is that the menus aren't near as flexible as DVDlab but the video is easier to import and set up quickly since the templates autofill. I just wish they autofilled with the name of the video files so I didn't have to type in each episode/chapter title. I was also thrown by the play button on each menu page as it plays from the start of disc and not the start of the chapter/s displayed on the menu.

Anyone know of an easier way to batch files with Tempgenc 2.5?
I have to load each video and select the KVCD template for each file before adding them to the batch. Is there anyway of selecting several files at once with the same settings?

I would have say you taht the result was not so good. I jusst do a 5% shrinking but I obtained cracks in tghe audio and jerky motion in some videos. I guess that is because DVDshrink can't handle MPEG1 correctly.
But that was cartoons so I can live with the defaults.
