I believe (Based upon what I have been reading on the web & DVDStyler will not see *.mp4 files in its directory listing...) that I need to convert the M4V/MP4 file into MPG or AVI format first.
I have been able to convert the file using MPlayer/MEncoder but I am not using the correct command line options. When the conversion is completed I have a file that is less the half the size of the original. The audio plays correctly but the video now appears to be a bunch of still pictures that change every 3 or 4 seconds.
I tried the following and both produced the sames results:
mencoder Burn/Ghana.mp4 -oac lavc -ovc lavc -of mpeg -mpegopts format=dvd:tsaf -o Burn/test.mpg
mencoder Burn/Ghana.mp4 -oac lavc -ovc lavc -of avi -mpegopts format=dvd:tsaf -o Burn/test.avi
I am not claiming to understand all the abilities of MPlayer. Anyone who does please chime in here. Thanks!
