I don’t know if this can help, but insteado of using 3 programs, I use 2, Xilisoft Video Creator ( This does the Mpeg2 conversion automatically and then it authoritates the file) And then I use DVD copy to burn the vob and all those files into a blank dvd... In a 1:1 ratio, so no quality loss is present..
I’m not sure about the mpeg2 automatic conversion, but as I have learnt, to burn a dvd it has to be in mpeg2 format, and I have burnt several dvd’s when it’s original file was an .avi, so I guess xilisoft does the mpeg2 conversion..
You can have a look at this ConvertXtoDVD video guide, it will help.
if you are using nero, there is an option to make a video dvd, you can select avi files there and it can automatically convert it to playable video dvd. you can also create the menu in nero. its as simple as that.
If you want to produce DVDs without limitations I’d advise you to obtain a valid license. You can do this by buying one (legal) or downloading a crack/serial number (illegal), up to you.
How do you get a serial number (name and code) illegal...?
I know I’m lousy, but I can’t afford to pay for it. Plus WINAvi is the only program I got to work, after trying others nonstop for two days.
I am desperate, can someone help me? :'(
I have tried Collins instruction as well.
But I only got sound and black screen. :(
WINAvi worked and it was simple. But is there a way I can use it for free and not get the logo-name in the middle of the picture?
Full retail version of Nero 8
Open Nero Vision 5
Click the following...
Add Video File (On the right)
Locate your AVI file.
Set-up a DVD menu if you like.
It will show a preview.
Click Stop on the virtual remote.
That’s it. [If you have the full version of Nero 8]
I chose “do not use a menu” from the drop-down as it was a single AVI I wanted on the DVD
Is this for real ? they’re all old proggy’s mentioned that take time and getting used to..........much easier ways to do films now.
I agree magnetas is a plonker like most people he forgets that he was a novice that needed help once........if anyone is still having trouble leave your email addy and i will send any proggy with the instructions how to use it.
Torrents are the main way for films and if you join a proper site the risk of a virus has gone........Limewire imesh and kaaza are old hat now and crap.
Avi-Mux is the best for joining files........Nero is superb....VSO DivxToDVD and WinAVI both great..........i think a lot of problems with loss of sound and video are your codecs..........go to freecodecs.com and get K-Lite codec pack.......maybe Real alternative as well...........could go on for ages so it’s best you just ask then i can steer you in the right direction lol........Have fun and never give up it’s really very easy.

Viewers of this thread may be interested to try Super by erightsoft: http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html.
If it is anything like as good at creating DVDs as it is at converting avi to iPod format etc, it’s certainly worth a try.
Note that the verbose webpages with up-front help, require you to suffer being taken to the third page when following the download links, before getting one that actually downloads the program.
Also note that:
The forum no longer seems to work, probably because the very helpful co-ordinator became fed up with idiots being rude.
It will probably be necessary to give over all your computer’s power by not running anything else whilst processing, and make sure your HD has about 30Gb free (not sure why)
Further to my last, Super worked very well and quickly, transposing at 2Â½ secs per Mb so about 1hr for 1.2Gb. No noticeable deterioration.
Well worth a try and I’d be interested to hear how it shapes up against others.
