    Hello, lets try and make this sound obscure, still unsure if no warez means no discussing it.

    Lets say that I happen to obtain a lot of TV series on a regular basis usually in 1280x720 in the A52 audio codec with the H264 video codec in the MKV container. I was wondering what is the best software to burn it to Blu-Ray discs along with creating a menu and if the files would need to be recoded into a different audio or video format.

    I am trying one at the moment that seems to work all right but for some reason the 21.5GB of files I have are being expanded to about 51.5GB when I place them in the program, and I believe the program to be in error because at 720p or 1080p the file size seems to be the same.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    I think he meant VSO Convert X2DVD. I have used it for years for quick projects and I really like it. Very easy to use and basically automatic.

    I, too, have been using VSO ConvertXtoDVD for years (at least 2004-2005), but so far it only creates DVDs, not Blu-Rays. Maybe the current beta of v5 does???

    Convertxtodvd beta version has option to load blueray/dvd from disk, folder or ISO file.
    But as the name of the program says Convertxtodvd so it will only convert to dvd standards all I can say is I would never go back to nero for example bloatware you can install an OS system smaller than nero package now, where as Convertxtodvd comes with all codecs included 22MB similar to VLC media player.
    Since vista then windows 7 I have never downloaded any codec packages no need to as Convertxtodvd and VLC media player does everything I need. Another point now as regards to Convertxtodvd v5 it can hard code subtitles and cut and edit your video file for me personally this is great rather than having to load video file into say avidemux to hardcode subtitles then load into convertx no need now it can do all.

    P.S. I still use nero but just stripped down version v9.4.26... 27.4 MB basicly only used when doing audio cd or converting mp3 to audio :biggrin:
