7.8gb mp4 File - Clueless
« on: March 28, 2017, 07:38:01 PM »
I have an mp4 file of a concert video with my audio tracks. It is the whole concert in one file, of 7.8gb.  I realize that it is too large for a single disc burn. I have no idea about video, video files, etc.
I'd like to get it burned to DVD(s) without damaging it, or screwing it up.
I run a Mac Mini, and am mildly knowledgeable (dangerous) with it.

Help. Please and thanks.

What are the properties of the video?

Is it HD or SD?

7.8GB should fit on a dual layer DVD. Whether the video is in High Definition, or Standard Definition, will determine what issues you may have burning it, and playing it back. Most newer DVD and Blu-ray players have the ability to read a variety of video files burned to disc and play them back. Some can even play them off a USB jump drive.

You could also split the original file into smaller chunks e.g. via mp4box (for *.mp4 containers) or tsmuxergui (for *.mts or *.ts containers). Each of these individual files could be played via mplayer, vlc etc. and, if necessary, they could be merged again via mp4box, tsmuxergui or simply cat or "copy /b".

If it's a playable DVD you're after, you'll need to transcode it to mpeg2 in order to author a DVD. If you're looking to use a single-layer DVD you could use a lower bitrate when transcoding.

Ugh...  I'm in way over my head. Thanks, and apologies.
*So, transferring the mp4 file to a USB jump drive might be enough to play it?  My ATT "TV" DVR box has a USB port on the front. Maybe I'll try that.

*Fail.
The USB jump drive is a Lexar 125gb with nothing on it.  I get a message suggesting that "the file can't be copied because it is too large for the volume's format".

As for the too large for format volume on flash drive you need to reformat it to NTSF OR EXFAT

Agreed, reformat to exfat, and you'll be good.

Yep, FAT file system limit is 4GB file size.

I would consider using YouTube to view your video. Upload it there and play it back whenever (or wherever) you like.

It took a while for me to figure out how to format the USB-drive to the exFAT format.  But, I finally got that dang mp4 file to go to the USB-drive. 
I was able to format to the exfat format, but kept getting failed tries.  I then went again to exfat, and asked for an Apple Partition, and that partition request seems to have made the difference.
thanks again, guys!

Congrats! You now have a Mac format thumb drive. It may not work properly with that file system on a Windows machine now, although it might work on Windows 10.

If you want to upload it to Archive.org they will host the whole thing at full quality (unlike youtube) and allow downloads. Note that you can't use Firefox for files larger than 4 GB when uploading to the archive...  :o
