The backstory: I've purchased a DVD via online download (from EZTakes.com). The files appear in this kind of directory tree:
DVD Name +-- VIDEO_TS/ | +-- (various video files) +-- cover/ | +-- (a couple of .jpgs of the DVD cover art) +-- content.info
I'm trying (on a Mac using Disk Utility) to burn this to a DVD. I've created a DVD/CD master image of this structure in a couple of different ways and then burned them, none of which have produced a DVD that is viewable in my DVD player. Here's what I've tried so far:
- Make an image of the whole structure shown above. Basically, pointed Disk Utility at the "DVD Name" folder.
- Make an image of the whole structure shown above, minus what seems to be metadata that might not be necessary – I removed the cover subdirectory as well as the content.info file, and pointed Disk Utility at the "DVD Name" folder.
- Make an image of part of the structure above. Basically, pointed Disk Utility at the "VIDEO_TS" folder.
So I'm wondering what contents the filesystem image needs to have. What's the right structure so that my DVD will play in a regular DVD player?
Oh, I believe the medium itself isn't an issue. I'm using DVD-R discs, and both DVD players I tried these burns on claim to be able to play DVD+/-R discs.
