How do you convert .avi to dvd format to play on dvd players.
Does it have to do with something like converting them into .vob then use nero to re-encode them and burn. I did that, but did not work on my dvd player. I used super and it converted it but re-encode then burn and it did not work. Can someone help me or if theres a guide I can follow, would be appreciated.

Where does that AVI come from? Surely, to encode it, you must have the DVD in the first place, right?

In addition to DVDs, .AVI files can come from, among other things, camcorders, video capture cards, as well as open source-related websites (Like the one for "BigBuckBunny", discussed in the "General" sub-forum here)...

Here is my guide to convert AVI file to Video-DVD, based on Avidemux/DVDStyler/ImgBurn:

FAVC is another option. Especially for beginners.

A very simple point and click solution would be DVD Flick, with very few mouse clicks you can have just about any video format converted to a DVD create an ISO or Burn straight to disc, perfect for newbs

I like to use one software called ConvertXToDVD, that is freeware and has the easiest interface I ever seen.
The only negative point of ConvertXToDVD is that you cannot specify one bitrate to the output video, there are only presets.
But don't worry...the "high quality encoding" profile will give you awesome results.

Hey there.

Here's my vote for ConvertXtoDVD.

Perfect for nOObs, and don't worry about the bitrate. Default is plenty good enough, short of showing it on a massive projection TV or a HDTV 40-incher.

Sorry, ConvertXToDVD is NOT freeware but trialware.

Freeware (more, open source) are FAVC and AVStoDVD, widely reviewed here (http://forum.doom9.org/forumdisplay.php?f=47) (Doom9 forum proper section). And, IMO, they are just as easy as ConvertXToDVD, maybe less "stylish"...

Just to throw in my 2 cents, I was looking for different options - programs I hadn't used before. I downloaded the trial of AVI DVD Burner 2008. While it was fairly easy to use, it just didn't seem like it'd be worth the $30 shareware commitment.
