Default I have several .avi files that I want on a DVD..

How would I go about putting these on a DVD? They have the xvid codec and my dvd player can't play them so how do I put them on a dvd?

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

1) Use "TMPGEnc" (or "TMPGEncPlus") to convert the .AVI (XviD-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 ;>}

Wow, reencoding to mpeg 2 takes a long time, bout a 1 hour for a 45 min show. They are coming out in mp2 and m2v, they can be joined in TMPGEnc DVD Author right?

Yes - but with the proper settings in "TMPGEnc", you could have simply chosen to create a single, multiplexed (video and audio) MPEG-2 file...

Default Nero's the easiest

TempEnc certainly works, but the easiest, one step solution, is using Nero Vision Express. Open a new DVD project, add the avis, select(or auto select) chapters, edit (or accept default) menu structure, then encode & burn. Its wizard driven and has excellent results. Also quite quick.
