Burning avi to DVD to play on a DVD Player

What is a good program to burn an avi or multiple avi files to a DVD to be able to play on a DVD player?

I use this and love it. Converts all video formats, as well as PAL>NTSC. Creates chapters, etc.

What kind of AVI? Is it a DivX or XviD you downloaded? If so the ConvertXToDVD is great. Those files often use VBR MP3 audio and if you try to do a straight conversion with TMPGEnc it might throw the audio out of sync. If it's a DV-AVI TMPGEnc would be good.

There are many ways. I'm very disappointed with convertXtoDVD. Bought it for PAL>NTSC conversions and it sucks for that.

Re: Burning avi to DVD to play on a DVD Player

I bought an LG DVD player, plays pretty much anything except wmv no mucking around inflating the files. I think it was about $45.

Does time or file size fill the dvd up?

file size

to change your 'normal' (xvid etc) avis to vob files the file size will increase A LOT

I've been using ConvertXToDVD. And when I would add a 300mb avi file the file will increase to about 800mb. Does this sound correct?

I don't know it but what I red it's not better than free encoders like ffmpeg or HCenc. Anyway, if it has advanced setting for avi to mpg2 encoding you should use 2 pass encoding and bitrate in between 6000 - 7500 kbps, if the avi file is high quality. For low quality 2500 - 3500 bitrate (experiment with setting) would be enough, and you may try with CBR - constant bitrate which is 1 pass encoding - quicker.

General rule: the higher bitrate the bigger file.
