Does anyone know what program i need to use to convert .avi files to a dvd so i can watch in my normal dvd Player(this player does accept rw discs). Also when i have the program what format do i convert it too.
two step are involved (1) encoding: convert avi to mpeg2 (2) authoring: put mpeg2 into dvd format and structure
for (1) NO free software can be found becuase mpeg2 is not free (2) all major burning software package has limited function such as Nero and Roxio, NTI.
It maybe a better idea to get a single all-in one video editing program such Ulead Videostudio click here, it does a good job, it is not expensive, and you can get a 30 days fully-working trial to test out click here
