Problem when recording video to dual layer DVD disc

    I tried recording a video to a dual layer DVD disc as it was too big
    to fit on a single layer DVD disc but when I play the video on my DVD
    player only the first layer of the video will play. If I play the DVD
    video on my computer then I can play both layers of the disc. If there
    some way during the recording to DVD to tell my dvd player that it
    needs to switch over to the next layer when it's finished playing the
    first layer?

    I often wonder in a commercial music video DVD how they can get the
    DVD recorder to switch to a second layer between songs and not when a
    song is being preformed to avoid the slight delay during the switching
    over of layers.

    Regards Brian

    Start with... What software are you using?

    I use DVD Architect for making DVDs and it lets you pick the point
    where you want the layer change to be so that the studder is minimal.

    Thanks fro your suggestion Philip.
    I can't remember what software I was usung at the time as it was a
    wehile since I tried writing to a double layer DVD and I've tried a
    few video editing programs since.

    There might be some special mark that written to the disc to
    indicate to the DVD player that the disc is dual layered and when to
    change to the second layer. In my case prehaps the program I was using
    did not write this information. It might be possible that my DVD
    player does not like DVD-R DL type discs and sees them as single layer
    discs.

    Regards Brian
