I’m looking to burn several episodes of a TV show onto one DVD. I’m using AVI2DVD to convert the files to MPEG DVD format, but so far I’ve not found any programs that allow me to put “chapters” onto the DVD to separate the different episodes.
I have Nero, but it only seems to allow 1 episode per DVD.
Does anyone know any software, preferably freeware, to do this?
Nero should let you do it. look for the “make your own dvd-video” option is start smart. Add each episode as a separate video file. It should let you create a title menu screen with buttons for each episode. There is no need to convert first, it can handle most video file types.
Just a hint. If you have already converted to mpeg 2, rename the file extentions from .mpg to .vob . This will prevent nero from wasting time reencoding the video files from mpeg 2 to mpeg 2 (no sense wasting time reencoding into the same file type). since you are working with .vob files, it will ask you if you want to join them. If I’m not mistaken, choose no so it doesn’t combine the files together (not positive on that last part, I usally let nero reencode other file types rather than converting to mpeg 2 with another program).
Did your copy of nero come with a drive? If so, its probably a stripped down version with some features disabled.
If you want to go from an avi file, all the way to a working dvd, you want an all in one converter (which is what nero does if you have the full retail version).
Here are other all in one converters. I’m not sure which are good as I use nero, but I think there are some free ones.
