How do I burn a video to DVD without a loss of quality?

Sanuja R August 8, 2014


I have a 24fps (23.976fps) video that I want to burn onto a Video DVD. The problem is in Freemake Video Converter the only burn options for me to select are either PAL (25fps) or NTSC (29.97fps)

My question is this: Is there any way to burn this video onto a DVD (preferably PAL). I don’t want to decrease the quality of the video.

I appreciate any help ASAP.

    It depends on the video and audio codec used and "how" you want to use the DVD.

    You could just burn the video to a DVD as a file but then your DVD player needs to support the codecs used.

    If you want to burn it as a 'true' video DVD that works on pretty much any basic DVD player then the video will have to be MPEG-2 with AC3 or PCM audio. Now, if your current file is e.g. Divx then the video & audio will have to be re-encoded and that often results in quality loss.

    Since the frame rate of your source video is lower than the standard PAL frame rate, you should be able to simply burn it without having any noticeable (if any) effect on the finished product.
