Default xvid to dvd jerky

hi guys i have a problem i was not able to solve.
up to about few weeks ago i converted xvid movies to dvd with any of the programs i had(vso dvxtodvd /easy dvd creator/dvd flick/winavi) and they played fine on the pc or standalone player.
now (i don't know when it changed)all of the above prog.still convert fine but when i play the dvd files,either directly through a player in my pc(wmp/vcl/nvdvd)or burned in my stand alone player,the images are jerky.
before it did not use to do that!
when i watch a movie now and the camera action is fast moving the image jerks and it's not smooth.
i don't know what's going on :any ideas?i cannot pinpoint when this change occured because i'm always installing new converting programs ect.
the original xvid plays fine,and judging by the fact that the vob file plays jerky also when played directly in vlc media player,i thing there something wrong in the encoding.but how can that be that all of the programs use the same encoder?expecially dvd flick who uses it's own encoder?
it's driving me nuts!
ps:my info

video encoding is a very system intensive task with even the newest computers, one as old as yours and with only 512 megs of ram needs to be fully optimized and little running in the background, large amounts of free hard drive space and no fragmentation

I try to keep close to 300MB free of my 512 ram and at least 10 gigs of free contiguous(all together) hard drive space

i'm always installing new converting programs ect.

good recipe for disaster
