I've got a cheap model of Sony DV Handycam, brand new and functioning smoothly. I usually capture the video data off the handycam via Sony Vegas then convert/burn the AVIs onto DVD using ConvertXtoDVD. It's been working out great and I'm happy with the outcomes.
Till the other day I made a DVD of a friend's graduation ceremony (using the same method) and when I played it, it was horrible on the eyes as where the camera moved around the frames got all jumpy and there were as if horizontal bars coming down the whole screen interfering with the video image.
I first thought there must've been something wrong with the handycam though I quickly discarded that thought as the AVIs captured from the DV tapes play perfectly on the PC. I have read somewhere about "frame drops" but I think it's not quite relevant considering what I later found out -
Later that night I put on another DVD made using the same method - it was playing in the same horrible way! It was then I realize it was all to do with the new DivX capable DVD player I purchased the other week. But I'm puzzled as to why the new DVD player plays everything else alright but when it comes to the DVD converted from DV Handycam AVIs the video quality is so appalling? My previous DVD player (non DivX support) played really smooth video when it comes to Handycam AVI converted DVDs.
Anyone had the same experience and maybe could give me a hint what to do? Thanks
