burning DVDs

Postby gigpiglet » Wed Nov 05, 2014 12:03 pm

before i waste a bunch of time...
i have a large file (video and audio) that i need to distribute to about a dozen people
easiest (and cheapest) way would be to make a burn folder, and then burn it to 12 individual DVDs right?
pretty slow..
but its not worth replicating somewhere (as i only need these 12 copies - not 50)
any thoughts on an easier/ quicker way to do this?

Hi Gareth - You could upload the video to YouTube and make it private and then send the link to each of your 12 clients.

.... if it's customers I'd live with the inconvenience and do the DVD burn.

........ if they have reasonable bandwidth about a dropbox distribution?

............ if your mrs has some spare time it may only cost a bunch of flowers and dinner..... ;-)

It should take less than an hour, bill them for it. Alternatively, burn one and give it to them, they can then burn as many as they need to.

More expensive, but quicker, would be to copy it onto USB sticks.

just as an "answer" to this thread incase anyone else is looking for a solution.
i downloaded "burn" freeware for mac
quick/ easy/ simple interface DVD authoring program
quick to encode etc
and did what i needed with the least amount of fuss, for the least amount of dollars (free)
