Re: How do you burn avi files to a DVD?

Hi inmanjames,

 

You can burn a .avi file directly to a dvd but unless you have a player capable of playing the file within the .avi container, it won't work.  Often files within a .avi container are encoded in the xvid or divx codec.  If you only wish to play these files on a computer there are plenty of free codec packs you can install which will allow you to do this.  A good example of this is on the link here.

However, if you wish to play these movies in a dvd player you will first need to convert the .avi in to a suitable format.  The program on the link below is excellent at this and will also handle burning the converted .avi to a blank dvd, however it is not free.

Hope this helps,

There is free software that works quite well: http://www.dvdflick.net/download.php

This will make most any video file usable in a standard DVD player.
