The method I personally use and suggest, (Yields outstanding results) is as follows: Quoted By: "setarip"

1) Use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the .AVI (DivX-compressed or otherwise) to compliant MPEG2-for-DVD format - Use "TMPGEnc's" DVD wizard/template to accomplish this

2) Use "TMPGEnc DVD Author" (a different program than "TMPGEnc") to easily create the required additional DVD files and structure (and chapters and a menu, if you wish)


**If the combined file size of the DVD "package" written to your hard drive is greater than 4.37Gb, use DVD Shrink (or similar) to compress


If your O/S is either Win2000 or WinXP, TMPGEnc DVD Author can also burn your DVD. Otherwise, use NERO to burn in "DVD-Video" mode - Tutorial Located here on how to do this: http://forum.digital-digest.com/show...453#post221453

"i am after some easy to use software that will create dvd files from avi and all mpeg formats."

Remember that "easy to use" doesn't usually mean "yields best results".

While my methodology, described by "jmet" will yield EXCELLENT results, it's not necessarily the "easiest" to use (although it's not really difficult).

Amongst the "easy to use software" is DVD Santa - as long as you remember that "easy to use" doesn't usually mean "yields best results".

"thanx for everyones help. have managed to crack the problem"

Glad to hear you've resolved your dilemma!

Have you settled on my favorite, TMPGEnc, or something "easier"?
