I would dispute burning speed as the cause,
on the basis that you have not supplied enough information for me to come to that conclusion...
I assume you would not have just burnt 1 avi to a full DVD disc... ??
1. How do other files play that are on the disc ?
2. Does this file only stutter in parts of the movie, OR almost equally the whole way through ?
IE.In a regular jitter or just certain places throughout the movie.
3. How long have you used this same type/brand of media you are currently using ?
Is this a disc from the middle of a spindle of 25 or more ?
If you have had any burns fail, with other discs from this spindle or same brand media ?
4. Do you burn with verify mode, which compares the burnt disc's files with the original files on pc ?
1. If other files on the disc play fine, then maybe it is a decoding/encoding issue with that one file.
2. If this file only stutters in parts, then yes it maybe a read issue related to burn speed or junk media.
3. If you have had many good burns with this same media and no failed discs, using same writing speeds, then could be just this disc
especially if this file just stutters in parts......
I suggest using ImgBurn to burn any
files to disc and always make sure verify is checked
(Free software and compact)
Now as far as writing speeds go,
I burn between 15-20 DVD discs either DVD or AVI format at 8X or 16X
with educational material a week for my students
they are played on a variety of different players at the students homes
and rarely do I ever have an issue,
more often than not,
the disc is returned dirty, when it is anyway
