i am trying to burn a dvd my brother made in iraq and its in .avi format whats the best formate to convert it so so its in the best quality
If you want the best quality...leave it alone. Any conversion will reduce quality.
If you are trying to burn it onto DVD for playback on your TV, then you don't have any choice. Use a program such as ConvertXtoDVD.
hi mattsv8fiero and welcome:
CovertXtoDVD is great and has a trial version but it will leave a watermark during the trial. Try VSO DivXtoDVD (Freeware) v0.5.2b (precursor to ConvertXtoDVD).
