I’ve got the first two seasons of a television program as .AVI files (obtained legally) that I want to burn to watch on my standard DVD player.
Most episodes are right at 360,000KB in size right now, with one double length episode at just under 720,000KB.
I converted the biggest file to a .VOB file using DVDsanta, and tried to used my Roxio Easy Creator 6 to burn it, so I could create menus to select the episodes, but the .VOB’s combined end up being almost 5.5GB, and therefore won’t fit.
Since that large file won’t fit, that tells me that I would only be able to fit one of the smaller episodes per disc, that just doesn’t seem right to me.
So, basically what I need is something that will convert the files to something that will play on my standard DVD player, and will shrink the file size considerably in the process. For all I know, I might be able to do it with the programs I’ve already got, but I’m not familiar with them to know. This is what I’ve been working with on this project.
Roxio Easy CD & DVD Creator 6
Amadis Video Converter
Can I even do what I’m trying to do with those, or do I need to get something else?
Any help would be very, well, helpful.
