AVI recording wont play on my dvd player on the tv

  Sparkly 08:04 12 Dec 2012

Morning all i have recorded my grandson in his first nursery xmas show it plays fine on the pc/laptop as an avi but when i put it on a dvd disc for watching back on the tv the player does not play it, can you suggest a good free converter so that it plays on most dvd/blu ray players so i can give other family members a copy. Many thanks

What did you use to burn to disc?

It may be that the disc isn't finalised.

Img Burn is very good and will do the whole job.

Should have said - it's free

Hi marvin42 thanks will give it a go. I used Burnaware.

Freemake Video Converter will convert your AVI files and burn them to a DVD. Watch out for unwanted toolbars when installing.

Freemake Video Converter 3.1.2

Well, I usually use Format Factory for video conversion and DVD Ripping. It's free too.
