Its true man...

Now a days...we got the DVD players, which are capable of playing AVI files.

Yes, its fact dudes... “Samsung DVD-1080P7” is the player. reply

Just buy a DIVX compatible dvd player (LG make lots of them and the three I have owned are faultless) It should not cost more than $60 Australian dollars from Tandy/Dick Smith (Australia) Then there is no need to waste time converting anything. These players will play anytrhing you throw at them. Remeber that many .avi files were originally DVD rips so to convert back to VOB format would be redundant. reply

Can any one tell me how to burn my avi files to dvd? I don’t mean i want to convert them. i want to burn them STRAIGHT to dvd so that they won’t take up as much space on dvds so i can fit almost 20 episodes onto a single disc and watch them on a dvd player. please don’t tell me how to convert and then burn because i know how to do that. i’m just curious on how to burn avi files so that my dvd can read them. reply

Okay, downloaded some movies via internet in .avi format and stored them in my system. I’ve opened these movies and acutally watched a couple on the computer. I Purchased Memorex DVD+R 16X, 4.7gb, 120min CD to burn the movies too. Using Win Vista Media player, I moved a 1 hr, 10min movie to the burn list and it said I still had 4.3gb left on the cd?? So not understanding what the heck this meant, I proceeded to burn the movie as a dvd movie from the drop down box under “burn”. When the cd was done, I placed it into my XBOX and it didn’t register. I placed it in another home PC (WinXP) and it locked up my system. I tried it on my PC at the office (WinXP) and again it just idled and never even lauch a single window. So here’s the question, I want to be able to burn the downloaded movies to cds and be able to watch them on a home dvd player or XBOX, how in the heck do I do this using the tools I have? I’m technology impared, and need help. reply

Burn 101

I have an LG dvd player - burn the avi files as 'data' to a dvd - they should then be playable by a divx/xvid compatible player reply

My files are not avi they are rar, i cant burn directly to DVD, it does not work. i need a converter that will convert the rar files to a DVD (watchable) format... do i need to use a converter to convert the rar files into avi first? im new to this so have no clue. thanks x

A .rar File is basically a .zip file, just diffrent -Don’t ask why, I dunno- I use WinRar to extract them, I think you can get it as a free download from here . It will then unpack it to whatever file type it is. If it’s .avi, then you will need to convert it to DVD format, with a free trial download from . I use power2go, but Nero will do the job too, just add/drag it onto the window, then just click burn. It should work on any DVD player.

Hope that helps =] reply

Hi. I think the problems here are mostly caused by misunderstanding the various video formats. To play on home dvd player you need a properly authored dvd VOB file. You cant just create a VOB file - and softwares that claim to do so are just converting via other formats and mostly end up with a mess. So, there are 2 simple steps to burning avi (or any other random video format) onto a DVD that will play in a normal home dvd player.

Step 1) Convert the file to MPEG-2. This is the standard for tv, and dvd movies. I reccomend the free version of “Any Video Converter” to do this, downloadable at

Step 2) Use a DVD authoring software to create the VOB file or ISO image for the disc. Basically VOB is just an MPEG-2 movie with a few extra bits of info code added that the dvd player needs. There are countless freewares available for dvd authoring, just google it. You’ll probably already have one on your computer. Using said DVD authoring programme you should be able to burn your final authored file directly onto disc and it will play in your home dvd player. A few authoring softwares don’t have a burn feature, they just spit out a VOB or ISO file. Thats fine - use your normal burning programme (such as Nero) to burn to DVD.

Cheers guys, and I hope that solves all your various video to DVD problems. reply
