Note on video capture with xdtv

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on November 21, 2006 07:27 AM
If your computer is reasonably modern, you should be able to capture full DVD resolution video with sound in realtime under xdtv. You use a different resolution and frame rate for capture depending upon if you are making a PAL (Europe, Austraila) or NTSC (Asia and US) disc. PAL DVD spec is 720x576 @ 25 frames per second NTSC DVD spec is 720x480 @ 29.97 fps Note that if you want to change the video width to 720 you may have to change the 'W-Modul' value to 16 first, which is located next to the video width setting under the xdtv Record Movie/video parameters menu.
