kwag -- any thoughts on the "mini-DVD" format? That is, encoding with MPEG-2 and authoring as if for a DVD, then burning to CD-R.

Yeah, tried it on my five DVD players several months ago. No go
Doesn't work on any of them

I've tested it in my player (Philco) and it doesn't recognize it as a DVD.

However, it can read the disc and shows the UDF file system with the .vob files, and it can play the .vobs (as if it was "ISO MPEG"). The good news is that it handles high bitrates, the bad news is that it doesn't set the aspect correctly.

The audio in mine plays OK, but only the 1st track - I can't switch audio tracks. The subs don't work too, and if the video is anamorphic it gets cropped in the TV.

Hi all !
I have read that some of DVD players are capable to recognize and play properly MINI dvd disks coz of new upgraded firmware they have .
I newer tryed but firmware flash and upgrade are not very difficult to do according the webpages.
Maybe some of u guys who already did upgraded your players and have some experience in can help us with this new/old task ?!!
This can develop to new KmDVD ??!!!
Any relevant suggestions will be helpful here !

bman
