I use myDVDEdit on a daily basis as it is the only Mac app I have found that easily enables me to change the aspect ratio. I'm running OS 10.14.6 Mojave and I will be very disappointed if your app no longer works on the current Catalina OS. Thank you for an indispensable app and I hope you update it to be compatible with Catalina. Thank you.

Like the previous post in your guest book ... I'm hoping you'll be able to update myDVDEdit for the 64 bit only versions of OSX.

If not; thanks for your great application which I'll miss (though in all honesty the need for it is passing once I get a pile of DVD-Rs sorted out!)

Hi. Thanks for MyDVDEdit, a tool that has been in my video toolbox for many years, probably since 2006, as that is the modification date on the v0.9.9 in my archive. I hope I will be able to use MyDVDEdit in the upcoming version of macOS, which as I understand it requires applications to be 64 bit. I hope you will keep MyDVDEdit compatible. If not, thanks for the many years that I was able to use it.

sorry gbnz, I have rejected your activation request. There are so many boots activation requests than sometime I miss real ones. Retry with the same pseudo, I'll be glad to activate it.
About your problem, when you have set the permissions of the folder, did you clicked the gear button and called the menu 'Apply to enclosed items'.

Hi I've got a Macbook Pro Retina and I am trying to use myDVDEdit to modify my iDVD project disc image as it is appearing as 4x3 despite being 16x9.

I have followed your guide -
but when I change the video aspect parameter from 4x3 to 16x9 letterbox the program crashes.

The project is on my hard disk with write access permissions set to "read and write"- but even when I open myDVDEdit it says, "The folder and some files are read only."

I go to my project file and select "Get Info", "Sharing and Permissions" then change to "You can read and write" - what am I doing wrong?

There is also no IFO tab only DVD/VTS/PGC - when I change from 4x3 I select VTS, is this correct given there is no IFO tab?

Can you direct me to a guide for version 1.1 and activate my login for the forum.

Bon Jour Jérôme,
merci bien!

I wish I knew more French, because I'd love to be able to tell you more of how much I appreciate your effort, in your native language!

I'm just starting here, to look around, but I had to thank you so much for all that it seems that you've done to create this place.

I work in Computing, as my job, and have created some pretty big programs, over the years, and I understand just how hard what you've done is. You can be assured that I will be contributing funds as my thanks of your work. I will try to decide just how much, after I've done a bit more investigating. I've been using tools like iMoview, FCExpress, and others, over the years, so I know just how hard it can be to work in these mediums. I've been wondering, in the past, just how to get more themes, makes changes, and more, and ended up with much frustration, as I'm sure you know!

Your work here must be substantial, because I know how hard it is to get information about these formats and programs. Thank you for all you do!

Merci beaucoup, mon ami! (see how bad my French is!)
¡usted se mece! (You rock!)

Thanks for creating this great app!

Since my last DVD creation project with FCE and iDVD two years ago, I had hoped all the bugs related to DV PAL widescreen handling had been fixed in the newer versions from Apple, but not so. Last time I struggled for a long time getting widescreen DVD menus to work on both 4:3 and 16:9 TVs. I finally succeeded after extensive debugging and modifications with MyDVDEdit - and after having learned a lot more about DVD formats than I ever wanted to Wink.

This time, when exporting DV PAL 16:9 from FCE to iDVD, I found I had to choose between getting the correct aspect ratio or Chapter Markers into iDVD. Fortunately, with MyDVDEdit, I knew I could fix the aspect issue later, and chose the Export as QuickTime Movie option to get Markers included. (I found an Apple support article explaining I would have to use the Quicktime conversion export command in FCE, and manually enter 1024x576 as aspect ratio, to have iDVD interpret DV widescreen setting correctly. However, this export method has no options for exporting markers).

Before I was allowed to generate VIDEO_TS files in iDVD, I had to click on Update in a "Modified Asset Warning" dialog, even though no media had been touched. The immediate result was that all start positions for the video sequences playing on the 24 movie chapter buttons were reset to the beginning of the chapter. I manually repositioned the movies again and was finally able to generate the DVD files. After fixing the widescreen flag in MyDVDEdit, I thought I was done. Big surprise during testing: All chapter buttons linked to the same chapter 7 movie!!!

I didn't want to start from scratch in iDVD and redo the whole project. Thanks to your excellent tutorial and DVD debug mode, I relatively quickly managed to find the 4 PGCs where the register values were erroneously always set to 7, regardless of which buttons were highlighted and clicked. Once I had checked all the button ids, it was a simple process to adjust to correct chapter numbers, and have a flawless DVD!

I´ll definitely donate some money for your program!

1st, the Guestbook is not the best place to ask questions.
2nd, I have just answer the same question few days ago. The search function is so hard to use ???

Welcome to my Guestbook.
Drop me a line.


I was able to change my video's ratio to widescreen 16:9, and it works in my iMac's DVD player, but I haven't been able to save it to burn to a disc using iMovie 5 or Disk Utility yet. What do I need to do next? Thanks DanR

Salut et merci pour cet excellent logiciel !

Sans doute pas facile de mener bénévolement un tel projet, pourtant ça devrait être considéré d'utilité publique compte tenu du prix de revient de l'accès aux technologies MPEG2, que ce soit l'encodage, le multiplexage, l'authoring etc.

C'est pas très ouvert et c'est terriblement complexe.

Ne serait-il pas possible de financer le développement de nouvelles versions de myDVDedit à partir d'un projet audiovisuel intégrant un authoring avancé ?

Qui finance ce genre de projet ?

Pour ma part, je tente de mettre en place un projet de coopérative de films, un jour peut-être je pourrai payer quelqu'un en recherche et développement sur un projet comme celui-là.

Mais pour l'instant, je débute et j'ai tout à apprendre (sauf faire des films, ça je sais...)

Je laisse ces questions en suspends avec un grand merci et bravo pour toute l'intelligence qu'on trouve dans ce projet, et bonne continuation Smile

I will not change my registration test because I have no spam any more since I change it. Robots can register the standard phpbb forums, not mine any more.

i had problems signing up i tried ejonesss using my yahoo account and it threw out the confirmation code.

so i tried again with my isp email thinking maybe it does not like the free emails

so once i figured out that you do the code differently instead of entering the code you have to add up the numbers i tried my isp email and i never got it there seems to be a delay so i re registered using ejoness and my yahoo account and was able to register

when you upgrade your forums it may be a good idea to go back to the common way of handling the code so others dont have problems

i also hope to get to beta test too.

Logiciel vraiment super bien fait. Complet, facile à utiliser et incroyablement puissant.
Bravo pour ce développemenet et merci d'avoir été ci loin dans le décorticage du format DVD.
