A good quality AVI format movie file takes double the bytes when converted to VOB (DVD format) of similar quality, meaning the AVI format is better then DVD format.
I have 12 episodes of 50 minutes each TV serial in AVI format saved as DATA in one disc of 4.7GB (quality equiv to DVD Standard Play). Fortunately this disc can be played in my home DVD Recorder/TV Tuner “TERAPIN” I bought from Singapore 3years back. But the same disc is not played by any of the latest DVD players like Philips, L.G, etc. Please let me know which DVD players other then mine can play AVI.
