but I am responding to bump it up the list, in the hope that somebody else might see it.
As a general comment I thought that about 17 mins. of avi, is about 4GBs and a DVD will only take 4.7GBs., so I would have thought that to get any more minutes than this onto DVD the avi will have to be encoded into a different format.
I would add that I am a complete novice in this area, so if I am completely wrong I'm sorry!!
