What are the pros and cons to converting .avi files to DvD files (VOB). Is it worth going through the extra effort?
I just bought a new DvD player and noticed it can read divx files. I burned 2 .avi DvD’s using Nero by simply burning the files as data and was able to play them.
I assume the advantages to converting to files to DvD are:
a) If you have an HD TV, you will have better images if you convert the files to VOB. ( I don’t)
b) If somebody you know has an older DvD player, they can watch the DvD.
The disadvantages would be:
a) It takes longer to convert the files into VOB (at least with Nero)
b) You can pack more files onto a DVD in .avi form (700 MB) per standard movie allows for 6 movies on 1 DvD.
