I know that to convert an AVI to something playable on a standard DVD player, it is necessary to reformat the video file. I have tried several applications, including ConvertX, Nero, DVDFab and the free FAVC. I assume that coding speed is mostly a function of my CPU, but does anybody have a view as to the fastest software to create a DVD image?
Silly at it may seem, FAVC seems to be the easiest to use and gives perfectly acceptable results (I tend to download, watch the program, and then rewrite the DVD so quality is not such an issue). Any thoughts on how to speed up the process?
