not easilly you would be better playing the file on you pc and using your graphics cards tv out to capture it to video
here is a site if you wish to go the longer route(not too difficult once you have done a few) but you will need a decent pc to convert video and a fair slice of spare hard drive memory

best of luck

(came with the burner)to create a film from an AVI. file. But there was a split-second discrepancy between sound and vision. On enquiring on this helproom I discovered this is quite a common problem with cheaper software. So I invested in the latest Nero but when I record to RAM discs the DVD player states the disc is unformatted.
I know it does work though so I will continue.
The one thing I will say is that I have over 1GB memory but it took nearly three hours to convert.
