Burning .avi's to dvd's

I have a buncha of movies in divx or xvid formats burned to many CD-R’s. I recently got a DVD burner so I want to put them onto DVD-R’s so I can play them on my DVD player. I’m using WinAVI Converter to go from avi to .vob which I hope to then burn with Nero Burning ROM to a DVD. I’m doing one now its taking forever to convert (3 hours?) but the file size is becoming huge. I’ll need a whole DVD r for every CD r i have. Why is that? reply

avi is a compressed video format for internet and pc whereas dvd format or “VOB” is an uncompressed format this is why it takes up a whole dvdr. the conversion software you use uncompresses the compressed..... hope this helps reply

so theres no possible way for me to fit more than one of these movies onto a dvd disk. I feel like somewhere i’ve seen like 3 or so movies movies ripped from a DVD and fit onto a single DVD disk with minimal if any quality loss. Maybe it was a special dvd player idk reply

When burning the software should converter the avi file to vob. It will take long time to get it done. reply
