Avi to DVD

  Fr0z3n 01:08 15 Jun 2004

Any advice on transferring avi files toi a DVD som i can view them in my home DVD player on my TV.

I can tried numerous apps and get no luck at all.

If i burn the DVD and try in my standalone DVD player i hear the disk spinning but i stay at the load screen and nothing happens. Also xp pro doesn't recognise the DVD disk either. Any help/Advice here.

What I do is use the free Windows Movie Maker 2 to edit the footage or at least get all the clips into one saved file on the hard disk.

Because AVI are either type I or II (WMM2 uses typeI),I then have to convert them to type II using a free programme called Canopus (or something similar!) - sorry, I can't remember the link.

Once converted, your (now)type II Avi can then be imported into your DVD writing/editing software and burned as usual.

Please bear in mind though that the age old adage of crap-in, crap-out still applies. Your TV screen will not be as forgiving as your computer monitor when watching downlaoded video or similar.

Have you just dragged and dropped your .avi files onto a DVD? You normally need to 'create a DVD' using any of the main burning softwares.
