Post Burning video files to Bluray?
This weekend, I'm going to start burning video files to Bluray disc (something Ive never done before.) My query is about the file type that would be acceptable for the authoring process. Currently, the video files that I want to put on Bluray are MPEG 2 / .m2t. Ive noticed in the past when Ive enquired at commercial businesses about burning Blurays, they've always requested MOV files. I was put off by their steep prices so I decided to buy a Bluray burner of my own. However, should I convert my videos to MOV first or would they be fine as they are? I believe the authoring software that came with the burner is PowerDirector 9.

They probably wanted the MOV files so they could then encode to the format needed for the BR. The formats for BR as I understand are MP4 (AVC) and MPEG2. But you'll need to author the disc as you just can't place the movie on the disc and have it playback on a BR player. Though some players probably would just playback the file. That said I am presuming that the PowerDirector 9 program you've mentioned is an authoring program.

Hope that helps.
