AVI - Converter needed!

Anyone know of a good free (if possible) app to convert AVI so it will burn with nero?

Any ideas would be great... Cheers!

Your nero really burns AVI files?
Im very confused as to why i cant then... please can you explain your procedure, for example what option do you select (create a dvd video etc)

Basicly im trying to burn avi to be able to play the disc in a stand alone dvd player.

AVI or d2v to VCD

Free and simple

Thanks for the help... This seems a realy good guide although when i try to open up my video file in TMPGEnc it says my AVI file is unsupported?

Should i be using MPEG rather than AVI?

your avi file may be divx format

Im going to try with MPEG instead!

Yeah i am using Nero 6 ultra edition. I have had this for a few months and have only just started using it .

I use a tool within Nero called Nero Express but i am making VCD's not DVD's. Whether this makes the difference.........i'm not sure.

But some of the files i have "burnt" to disc were definitely .avi

When i select the file using Nero a little window opens to tell me that "your video files will be automatically converted to VCD compliant mpeg1 files during the burn process. Ijust click next and Nero does its thing........

There are many free programs which can convert (encode) AVI files to MPEG1 format which is only good for VCD, however there is no free program for converting (encoding) AVI to MPEG2 (dvd need mpeg2) due to licence issues.

What you need to do is to buy a low cost video editing package which includs converter (encoder more precisely). Ulead Videostudio £43.1 is an excellent (and well likeed) low cost video editing package. You can download a trial verison to find out click here
