ive just burned a dvd with video footage i took whilst on holiday. it plays back fine on the camera whilst linked to the tv. but when i put it on dvd it was all jumpy and the sound was also. i have used 7 to do this. my laptop is intel celeron 1024 mb ram 2.7 ghz. but it is a bit sluggish.
As Jak_1 says many DVD players, particularly older ones, are a bit sniffy about DVD's generally. I would suggest you author the avi to DVD format. TMPGENC DVD AUTHOR is a good bet - there are no doubt many more.
