I understood that I need a 3rd party tool to create DVD menus and to burn them on disks. However, I am a newbie and I am wondering what are the things I need to consider when buying an external blu ray burner. I am on a mac and I plan to burn 4k videos - sometimes it can vary though. I have no idea what encoding like H.264, H.264 Blu-ray or MPEG2 etc. I have to use / be aware of.
I don't need top notch hardware for hundreds of euros because it's for personal usage. For example when I am old and want to watch vacations from the last decades 🙂
Looking forward for any tip. As I am a newbie I have troubles to determine what exactly I have to google for - I tried some but the result was not satisfying.
Thanks for the response. Yeah, while streaming does has it's advantage, it relies on having a good connection and cannot be shared that easily. Advantage I see in using disks is that I can burn them either once, for my own or if necessary for family & friends when we travelled together. I am aware that it's possible to provide a setup that allows others to watch from own systems but this needs to be maintained. Plus the more content I have, the more disk space I need.
In regards of UHD burner vs. BD, makes sense. Thanks.
