    Got tonnes of Bulls games taking up space on my computer. I need a program that will convert the avi files to DVD whilst keeping the same or close to the same quality of the avi on DVD.

    Anyone know of any programs that are good? Been through a few with no clear cut best.

    Why not just store them on the DVD as avi files?

    Why convert them at all?

    Most of the modern cheap DVD players will handle avi (divx/xvid) format.

    The conversion to DVD format will turn them into mpg2, and you will lose compression by a huge factor.
  3. I'd agree there. It would be much easier to just burn them as files on a DVD.

    If nothing else, you can try 1 and see if it will play on your DVD player.

    I think there´s a program called Avi2DvD,

    BTW I learned not far ago that .AVI is not a video format, is just the "nutshell". If you don´t belive me change manually a .WMV to .AVI and watch how it keeps working (you can always chage it back) :)P)

    i did so while using windows movie maker (which gives out .WMV) and placing it on a website with a Photo Gallery script which could reporduce just .AVI, so I just chage the extension and that was all.

    by the way, is a friends band website called the photo (and videos) gallery is at "Fotos y Videos"

    The format would be mpeg or divx or xvid or something like that.

    You can get plenty of info about DVDs, how to changes formats and stuff in

    Best site I know about this!!!!! With plenty of tools to download and tutorials.

    .AVI is still a video format. its just a diffrent extention diffrent programs require a curtain extention because of how its coded like you said windows movie maker uses .WMV because thats the way microsoft coded it.

    thats what i learned anyway.

    gunny if you need that program pm me;)
