    I'd like to put a .avi video clip onto a Verbatim DVD-R, 16x, and have it play on my DVD players. Anyone know how I can do it?

    My software options are:

    CloneDVDMobile
    CloneDVD2
    AnyDVD
    DVD Decrypter
    Shrink
    Nero (not recode)
    Roxio 6
    1ClickDVDCopy 4.2

    I'm thinking I need to convert first, then burn?

    Converting AVI

    I would also like to know how to convert AVI. I've tried using Nero Vision a few times and the audio and video get out of sync. The audio lags or leads by up to 3 seconds every time I try with nero. My Tmpeg Inc program won't even accept the files. Da, mpeg. ??? Anyone.:confused:

    Google for Avi2DVD or The Film Machine.

    Both freeware or more like trial versions, then pay later? Do you have experience with either of them?

    Both are freeware. They use HCEnc or QuEnc to reencode the video into DVD format, so the quality is very good at the expense of speed. I haven't really used TFM very much but Avi2DVD works well. No menu support in either one.

    No problem at all. One last thing...for burning I recommend IMGBurn. Freeware written by the author of DVD Decrypter. It's a phenomenal burning package. Certainly CloneDVD or Nero could do the job, but, IMO IMGBurn is excellent.

    I'll probably try all 3, now that I know it's even possible. I have a lot of work ahead of me, trying to get all these avi's onto DVD.

    Good luck. Once upon a time I'd have recommended ConvertXToDVD...it makes this process super easy and gives a good balance between speed and quality. However, we've found GPL violations within the program which is VERY frustrating. So, we're forced to recommend freeware solutions that aren't quite as user friendly but don't violate license agreements. If you have any issues give a hollar and we'll try to help you out. My personal recommendation is for Avi2DVD as I found it to work rather well.

    Do you have the Xvid codec installed? I haven't used the app but perhaps you have to change a config setting to point to the installed codec?

    If you haven't installed it you can get a copy here:

    It does require that the codec for the avi file be installed, yes. So, if it's an XVID, then the XVID codec must be properly installed before you try to convert it.

    Personally, I like to avoid all of these conversion techniques. They always distort the video and leave you with a gigantic VOB file that is of lesser quality than your AVI. As long as your AVI is DivX encoded, i would recommend buying a DivX compatible DVD player so that you can have your original AVI play on your DVD player without modifying it in any way. You can also fit many more video files on a single DVD this way. Don't invest your money in a conversion program, invest it in a DivX compatible DVD player. Most new DVD players are now DivX compatible and are not any more expensive than a normal one.

    Just my 2 cents, for what it's worth...
