No. Maybe it's possible, but I would burn the avi to DVD as it is. Even with expensive payware it's a pain to convert avi to VOB, takes a lot of time that you surely want to spend for other things. It's just not the way it should be, because Xvid and Divx are end-consumer formats. Converting them back to VOB just makes no sense.

Some standalone DVD-players may even play back avi.

You can't burn an avi to dvd. DVD-VIDEO supports only MPEG1 and MPEG2. The VOB format is nothing but the MPEG renamed and (usually) split.

Now if your hardware has a built-in DVIX or XVID decoder then you could burn an avi directly to CD-R (maybe dvd-r / +r?) and use that (though I am not familiar with the process). Otherwise if you want to view an avi on your dvd player you have to do the transcoding.

The best way to transcode, in my opinion, is with TsunamiMPEG Encoder (TMPGEnc)... for the video portion. And BeSweet for the audio portion (althought TMPGEnc can do audio as well... I have found its MP2 encoding to be of lower quality however).

TMPGEnc allows a 30 day fully functional trial I think. There are open-source options as well... Like MediaCoder which you can find on sourceforge.net.

Yep, TMPGEnc is a great little app for converting avi. I've made stacks of SVCDs with it.

you can burn avi to a data DVD. This data DVD can be read with modern DVD hardware players. There's really no need to spend too much time with encoding to mpeg.

The DVD's I give to people have around 10 hours of material.

When I'm archiving my files, I'll burn a bunch of videos to a single data DVD. But when your handing them out to people, it makes it hard for them to watch on a stand-alone DVD player unless your really good and can add a menu of some sort. Plus there are many non-tech people that you will be missing by giving them a hard to use DVD. Most would probably get flustered and just give up. The people we are trying to reach aren't the most intelligent or they would already know :wink:

I find it best to leave it simple. When I'm burning for friends that I can tell how to get it working it's different, but for handing out to complete strangers it's probably best to convert to DVD.

Best proggy for me was SVCD2DVD it's a stand alone proggy that costs £10 for life including the upgrades, comes complete with tutorials and is easy to use.

http://www.svcd2dvd.com/

I've used all the others 'Free' and all have one issue or another, audio out of sync etc...

So for £10 i recommend, as i'm still using this software 2years after it was introduced to me. This will convert most formats and burn to disk using nero.

Enjoy :biggrin:

Any questions just ask

I agree, I used to make complete DVD's with nice menus to hand out to people, but I stopped it because it is too much work. When people are too lazy to download xvid, divx, quicktime codecs to watch the videos on their pc's, I don't care anymore. These are people who prefer to see the latest X-men film, so they shall watch their crap. I've done my duty when I give the material, and I leave it to the people to watch it. And when you need software, there are sites where you can have it for free.

Edit: Might take u a little bit to figure out

Uniform printout reads end of line,Protect code intact leaves little time
Erratic surveys, free thinking not allowed,My hands shake, my push buttons silence
The outside crowd

One world government has outlawed war among nations,Now social control requires population termination

Have we come too far,To turn around,Does emotion hold the key
Is logic just a synonym for,This savagery, disguised in
Forgotten lost memory

Microchip logic,have we no more thought
&Is this wrong& I enter,Answers sought
Punch, punch, punch, transfer this data
Into code. Wide eyes watch my Number 156 is shown
Created from past life to perform,Illicit function, I fail this conscious
Madness I man/machine imperfection
