First, an advice, don't ever say you downloaded it, there is some people here that will blame you directly, so always trick them with "I have an AVI I like to" ... never say where you got it from

Now to the topic: what do you want exactly? simply burn, or convert to VCD or SVCD to play it on your DVD player?

Please check the www.doom9.org guides.

Re: help

Welcome to the forum! I hope you find it useful. But DJ is correct, you probably need to re-read the forum rules. You seem to have missed rules 1, 2, 6, and 9. Of these, rule 6 is the most important. For further insight on that rule, please click on this thread from another forum.

You are starting, I believe, with content that is MPEG-4 based video in an .avi file. Gordian Knot is a tool to create those. It's primary function is to transcode from other high bitrate formats (usually DVD or video captures) into MPEG-4 codecs, such as DivX.

It wasn't clear, but it seems like you were trying to use Nero as an encoder for VCD, SVCD, or DVD. It may be possible, but few do it. The vast majority of members here who use Nero do so for burning data discs, for things like .avi files, or for burning video discs from images created with real encoding tools.. Instead, other encoding tools are used to create CD or DVD images; and Nero or another burning tool are used to put the images onto media.

Before going any further, it might help if you determined, first, what it is you are trying to produce. As it is, we can't exactly determine what you want to accomplish based on what you've written.

The guides are fairly well organized, I recommend starting with the large section called DVD Basics. It might help you figure out where to go next.

If you've been through those guides and get lost or confused, then tell us what it is you are trying to accomplish, and we'll be able to help you.
