I made a dvd via idvd, it was quite short about 30 mins in total but when i play it back on my mac or on a standalone dvd player the video has ripples in it , like the ripples you see in water. Does anyone know why? i've selected best performance and best quality from the project info page, but its the same on both.

btw the ripples happend like all the way through....however when i preview the project in idvd it looks fine...there are no ripples when previewed with idvd....

plz help.....

You may have a problem with the media you're using. Have you tried a different blank DVD format? For example, if you're using DVD-R, have you tried DVD+R?

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I think i figured it out, i had the video format to mpeg (when you choose the name of the project). I changed it to DV and it is fixed....

What is DV? i heard that its for camcorders, but I have never seen a file extension of something like .dv.... is it very rear or uncommon or something

Dv, is used for most camcorders in the market.
if possible see if you can use other type of company's media. such as sony, tdk etc
