Final update on my home burned family videos.
The method used to create the "failed" videos was as follows:
1. capture, edit and export video to mpeg all within kino.
2. create iso using above mpeg with DeVeDe authoring application
3. burn iso to dvd using K3B
I discovered that I could use Kino to do the authoring step as well, so I tried:
1. capture, edit, export video to mpeg and author all within kino.
2. use kino option to launch K3B as well
These -R dvd's work just fine in all my dvd players. Not sure what was
going on within DeVeDe, but now I am happy that I can finally complete
Thanks for all the input.
