    Default Converting a .avi file to a DVD

    Hi,

    I understand the mechanics of ripping/burning DVD movies but a friend of mine has a .avi clip on a CD that he wants me to transfer to DVD that can be viewed on a regular DVD player. The software I have is Nero burning rom, DVD Shrink, DVD2one and DVD Decrypter. Just looking for the simplest way to do this. Thanks.

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

    1) Use "TMPGEnc" 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 ;>}
