A regular DVD created to play in a DVD Player has the video as ".VOB"  files (Video  OBject) inside the DVD's "VIDEO_TS" folder.  Unless you have special editing software, you will not be able to edit the video from a DVD we make for you.  However, if you want to be able to edit and create your own DVD, then tell us to make you a Data DVD as either an "MPEG-2" or "MP4" type Data DVD. (MOV, or Real Files because of the conversion time factor, are slightly more expensive).

Most consumer Editing programs cannot even view or edit a DVD's .VOB files, usually they won't even allow you to see or choose the file.  Most purchased editing programs ARE able to use MPEG-2 video to edit and create a DVD.  However, if the only editing program you have available is Windows XP's "Windows Movie Maker" *  it usually cannot view or edit MPEG-2, but it can use MPEG-1 (note: this program can only burn a Video CD, you will need to use a different program to burn it to a DVD).

At top, there are 6 samples of each Video file we can produce for you (they are only 5 seconds each).  Right-click on Box, and "Save Target As...", then direct to your Desktop, and it will download that type of file to you.  Note: the .VOB file is a zipped folder: save the actual file: "VOB File (S11)" on your desktop then open your editing program to see if it will allow you to import that file.  If it does (rare), then test to see if your program is able to use it or not...then make sure your program can HEAR the .VOB file's sound (it's the only one test file that has sound), as a some programs might let you see it, but they won't support the sound unless you purchase additional plug-ins. 

MPEG-2 is the best to use for editing in Windows PCs, but  if your software cannot use it, then we can create the data file as an MPEG-1 or MPEG-4 for you instead.

If you request this type of transfer, then we will send it to you on a DVD in 2 GB increments or smaller depending on length.  If you have a 2 hour video, you will receive 2 files on the DVD, and when you import the 2 files back-to-back into your editing program, there will not be a gap, it will play again as a 2 hour un-interrupted video, and will be fully able to be edited.  We can also create streaming files such as "Quicktime" and for "Realplayer".

NOTICE:   MPEG-2 and MPEG-4 DVDs will not play in most DVD Players!  This type of product is for you to download the files to your computer for you to edit yourself only.                                          

Right-click on a Box, "Save Target As...", then direct Test File to your Desktop to see them  *(the VOB FILE saves as a Zip File, just left-click and "save target as")

Our Guarantee:   Our DVDs are produced on new high-quality national brand DVD-R permanent media.   If your DVD player* FAILS to play any of our DVDs within 30 days, please return them and we will re-burn it for you on a DVD+R type at no additional charge.  Please check your DVD player's ability to play recordable DVDs by clicking: Compatibility.  Because the digital material we produce can take several hours per DVD or CD, and has the potential to be copied, we cannot offer money back, but we do make every effort to meet your requirements.   *Because of the many different operating systems, and video codecs requirements, these are designed to be played in DVD players, due to the additional processing time, a charge of $3 extra per DVD will be added to allow them to play in a computer.
