DVD Playback problems

I just shot a school concert and it turned out pretty good. All edited in Premiere pro 2, DVD authored in Encore 2 output to Taiyo Yuden 16X rated discs burned at 8X.

Problem I am having is about 25% of the people say the DVD's skip in their players :(

I tested 50% of them in three different players and they all played without a problem. The DVD's that skip on these other players work fine on my players and most others.

Any idea what could be causing this?

What is the bit rate of the video and the audio streams? And did you apply stick on labels?

I used Taiyo Yuden ink jet printable with a very small amount of text and a small image.

Info from Encore for DVD Build was the following:

DV High Quality 4MB VBR 2 pass

Audio was 192kbps 48Mhz


Should I be using 7MB+ CBR for better compatibility? The quality from above settings is perfect.

Your data rate looks okay (though I think you meant 48KHz), but might try burning the discs at a slower rate. The higher the burn speed, the more likely the discs will play in only a few decks. Higher-speed-rated discs have a different reflectivity, too. Also, were these DVD-R or DVD+R's?

i have two sony dvd-r burners that both had bad lasers... one of 'em started failing gradually, with the same symptoms you mentioned... it was a nightmare to troubleshoot.

if your dvd is on an external hdd, you might try taking the hdd to another computer to burn, something that doesn't have a sony burner... it would eliminate some possible issues.

btw, i guess that your audio format is ac3? that is definitely the way to go for best compatibility.
