Well my little brother just had his little league championship game. My mom video taped the whole thing and now we have it as a video on my comp in (.avi) format. My mom is heading out of town to visit some family, and they would like to watch the game. So what is a good free converter so that I can convert them and burn them to a DVD to watch in a DVD player???

If its made as a video CD (again, Nero or Roxio will do it) then since all a Video CD is is a cut-down DVD, it should play no problem. It won't look very pretty on a TV set (look a bit mushy) but it'll work.

Bear in mind a video CD will hold nowhere near as much video as a DVD would - a decent DVD quality video you'd be able to get four hours of on in a dual-layer disk. You'll be able to get about an hour of video on a Video CD.

Please see http://www.geocities...496/vcdfaq.html for further details.

Hi, I'm in a similar problem. I used to burn .avi files on VCD's to watch on t.v using Roxio, so recently I bought 4.7GB DVD's for longer time duration. However, Roxio would not let me burn .avi files onto the DVD. Is there a free software that will allow me to do burn and watch .avi files on a DVD player?

AVI files are not part of the DVD spec; therefore they wouldn't play on a DVD Player anyway.

Last time I did this, I followed this and just changed as I needed to as I already had raw video and sound, I just wanted it to behave like a DVD. You may have to experiment to get the effects you want.
