Default Help Needed: 1.5Gb AVI to DVD

Guys,

I need some help. I'm trying to convert a 1.5GB avi file to dvd format so I can watch it in my dvd player.

However I have tried many programs (the latest recommended to me was Ulead Movie factory 3) I've tried this program but when I tell it I want a DVD from my AVI file it tells me that th size needed for the DVD output is 12Gb.!!!!

How can I make the output dvd file smaller...??? so tht it can fit on a normal dvd..??

Thanks in advance.

Try a program called TMPGEnc Plus to convert the AVI to MPEG2, and then autor the video into a DVD & Burn with TMPGEnc DVD Author.

Both can be found here with 30-day trial versions.

Ulead is crap... stay away at all costs. (Just my opinion BTW )

One set of procedures (other posters may/probably will suggest alternative methods) would be:

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 filesize 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
(As an alternative to "TMPGEnc DVD Author", you could use "DVDLab")


Let us know of your success ;>}
