Ok..so i was visiting my Local CD Wallah and saw some DVD's with 2-4-7 Even 14 Movies on 1 DVD ...that Ticked me to Do some thing Similer...so i Turned to My First & Best Resource GOOGLE ....and Found many Diff ways ..all Too Complicated ...and none up to the Mark ...SO Started R&D ...tryed many many wayz.....and Failed ....so i realised that There is no ALL in 1 Soultion for this .....so Experimented with Many Combinations and finally Volla!! ....found a Basic Way to Do so .....so thaught to share the same with you all .....

Please Remember its illegal to Backup Movies on DVD ..unless you Legally Own Them!!!

Ok After The Bold Warning Lets Start ....Jot down the List of tools needed ..

1 ) 3-4 Movie Files which you want to Cram in 1 DVD
2 ) Nero Vision you can download it from here http://www.softwarepatch.com/utilities/nero-vision-express.html
3) DVD Santa ..you can download it from here
http://www.download.com/DVDSanta/3000-2646_4-10291136.html
4) A Fast PC (p4+ Least 1 GB Ram) ..to make the Encoding Faster
5) Atleast 5-10 GB of Free HDD Space
6) DVD Writer to Burn your Compilation on the Disk


Before Starting Remember the Thumb Rule ..Dont Expect "608 x 332" OR "688 x 284" Resolution Movies in the DVD ..there will be some Quality Loss ..so bare with it

Ok so lets Start ...there are 2 Parts of this Tute...1st Part is Encoding Movies with DVD Santa & 2 nd part is Adding Visual Effects & Authering & Burning with Nero Vision

1) Install / Open DVD Santa

3) Now You have added the Files...lets Move to the Settings Part ...

1st Change Video Standard from NTSC to PAL
Now i have tryed to Fiddle around the Other Settings but there was no significant Difference so lets Keep the Resolution Settings As it is..unless you have a Plasma / LCD TV ...Keep the Next Setting as Full Screen 4:3
Next Click on Advanced Settings

4) Now as you see There are many Adv Options Available..

so Unless you know about them lets keep them as it is ...we will consentrate on the Target Disk Size ....Now there are many ways to Set the Disk size...you can Individually select each movie and target it to a 650 MB or 1.4 GB Size..and add the files later on to Project..but for Simplicity sake ..lets just take the 4.7 GB Size ...Click 4.7 GB then OK

4 ) Now all set Hit Make DVD ..lets keep the Defalt Destination Path as it is ...

Now youe Video's are being Encoded
