avi to dvd

  sinbad1 16:42 22 Jun 05

looking for some free software to convert avi to dvd.
is this difficult and what sort of quality does this give.

any advise or info would be appreciated.

For good results I dont think any are free.
Personally for beginners I would recommend WINAVI. Its so simple to use, but it doesnt
create chapters etc, just a playable set of VOB dvd files which you burn using nero.
I use tmpgenc plus, which is tricky for beginners. I then use tmpgenc dvd author to create menus and chapters. Then nero to burn.

thanks for your comments i have downloaded a free program called vso Divxtodvd which works well in converting avi to vob files and then using copy todvd which seems to work but is a bit long winded,
must be an easier way.

dadyassa, yes i have looked at previous posts ;but none the wiser.

Where did you download your AVI file from? If it was from a digital camcorder I suggest you look on the disc that came with the camcorder as usually there is a simple authoring program on it to enable you to burn DVDs. I use Ulead VideoStudio 8 which I find easy to use & is perfectly adequate. Version 9 is out now so you could probably get version 8 quite cheaply on Ebay. Ulead MovieFactory 3 would also do the job & again you may be able to get it quite cheaply as it's been superceded

Further to my previous message I see there's VideoStudio 8 on Ebay at £7.49 Item No. 7164770779
