How many minutes of footage will fit onto a disc?

  • 1 and a half to 2 hours of standard quality can fit onto a DVD. We can fit more on a single DVD, but please remember, this lowers the video quality and is not recommended. The higher the quality the less we can fit on 1 disc with out lowering the quality.


What if I have a tape that is to long for a single DVD?
