AVI to DVD?

#1

Okay, I have a problem. I have some footage of my family in AVI. My sister wants a copy on DVD that she can play in her DVD player. I said I get her that. However, I do no know how to put the AVI files onto a DVD disk so they’ll play in a DVD player. Do I have to do anything special to the files or can I just put them on the disk one at a time and have them play?

If your player supports avi,then just burn to DVD disc…
If not you’ll have to first convert. Try with FAVC, DVDFlick or ConvertXtoDVD …
Good luck!

ConvertXtoDVD

The [B]best[/B] way would be to convert to DVD, even if the player supports Divx/Xvid. Their are many fine free programs: DVD Flick, FAVC, Avi2DVD or AVStoDVD. This way you will have an easily playable DVD with chapters (and some will do menus) and the ability to resume play from a stop. Navigation in Divx players is crude to say the least.

It’s generally held to be better to avoid another re-encoding step. Let’s see what the OP’s needs are… :wink:
