Another option would be to buy one of the newer DVD players with Divx\Xvid\AVI compatability.
I just got a Phillips DVP642 37 at walmart for $58.00 US
I fit 12 episodes of “Lost” on one DVD. These are Xvid/AVI format files and all are 350MB each.
The Phillips DVP642 37 loads a menu that looks similar to windows file explorer. You select your movie file from there, and it plays. Or if you have “playback control” enabled on your remote, the first file plays as soon as you load your DVD.
I burned these 12 AVI files into the root directory of the DVD blank.
I used Nero, and burned using the following selection:
“DVD-ROM/UDF” and left all the other tabs as default. I burned at half the maximum speed. (It showed 8x for a 4x DVD) I know I could have burned at 8x, but I have more confidence with a slower speed to, (hopefully), produce less errors.
These DVD’s play fine. I have 30 episodes on these DVD’s and they all play as good as the original file plays on my PC.
EDIT: The above Philips player doesn’t like this particular brand/type:
Maxell DVD-RW. I don’t have any other RW DVD discs, so I dont know if the player has problems with them.
I use, (and have always used), DVD+R discs. These play fine on my Philips player.
