Music Video Burning Software

I’m looking for a decent program to burn music video’s onto DVD. Sort of a mix CD of music video’s. I’m not looking to clone the DVD’s, but rather extract certain files from many DVD’s I own and make a music video compilation. I use Xilisoft Platinum DVD ripper to convert my music DVD’s into MPEG-1 files and use Power2Go to burn them. The Power2Go program came with the computer but the video quality is terrible. The video’s are dark when played back on DVD. Is there another program I can use that will burn with better video quality? Freeware is ideal, but no problem paying for quality. Or, is there a better format to rip the files to other than MPEG-1? The Xilisoft program has many format options, but I don’t have the knowledge of the formats…? Any information will be appreciated.
