I have a travelling VCD. I am trying to burn another disc to pass it to my friend but I am new and do not how to do it at all. Can anyone guide me the steps right from beginning, for example, do I need to save it in my PC first then burn it. Thanks
THIS IS HOW YOU MAKE YOUR .AVI FILE WORK ON YOUR DVD.
1. DOWNLOAD WINAVI VIDEO CONVERTER, THIS IS A FREE SOFTWARE. WINAVI IS A GOOD VIDEO CONVERTER AND VERY EASY TO USE.
2. CONVERT YOUR .AVI FILE AS DVD OR VCD FILE USING WINAVI.
3. BURN AND WATCH. ENJOY!
IF YOU ARE USING WINDOWS MOVIE MAKER JUST PUBLISH YOUR WORK IN YOUR COMPUTER AND CHOOSE .AVI AS AN EXTENSION THEN DO THE 1,2 AND 3. THAT’S IT. HOPE THIS WILL HELP YOU GUYS.
LEAVE A COMMENT OR THANKS.
Everyone does know that they do make dvd players now wihich will allow you to play .avi,xvid, and divx videos right. I bought one just the other day. Dont remember the model, but the brand was a Samsung it was only about $70.
The easiest way to play AVI and DivX files maybe is to download and install the freeware player VLC Media Player for OS X.
Of course, MPlayer, 3ivx D4 CODEC,and DivX can also play AVI files on Mac.
As to burn avi. files, you can choose iSkysoft DVD Creator, which can convert all the popular video formats besides avi.
you need to download a program called dvdflick to author and convert your movie files. then if you need to shirnk your files to fit on a disk i recommend using dvd shirnk
both programs are free and good luck
I dont think older dvd players will play .avi files on cd. Instead, it would be better to use the standard vob format.
You can download a converter like WinAVI, and convert your video file from .avi to vob format. Once its in vob format you can use a simple burning program to burn it to a dvd. Make sure your dvd player can play the disc you are using by checking the website first. eg. not all dvd players will play cd+rw or cd-rw. There are also plenty of free video converters - you don’t have to use WinAVI. Just google.
this program is awesome. DVDs from big companies hold more data than can fit on dvdr. dvdshrink compresses the image to fix on dvdr. it also copies dvds with their codex.
dvdshrink is 100%free.
Just go to divx.com and download the codec package, and then just open the file in windows media player and you should be good to go. If you have downloaded the divx codec, and it still won’t play then go and google xvid, and download its codec. It should work then. As for playing the .avi on your dvd player, if you have nero 5.5, you should be able to make a VCD, which your dvd player should be able to play.

Can’t be done. You need a divx/xvid/mpeg4 enabled dvd player. The logo for one or more of those will be printed on the box the dvd player came in and maybe on the player itself. More and more of the newer players play these but not all. I spent a lot of time converting avis to vcd and svcd until I realised that for 60 euros (now only 50) I could get a player that would play avis. Well worth the investment. When/if you do get one, the answer to your question is burn the avi to cd (treat it as data, which takes about 10 mins) and then shove it in the player. VoilÃ¡!
hello there.ive been burning this way for a year now but have only now run into a problem.2 movies i recently burnt were approx 1.4 gb.my pioneer did not play all the movie.indeed it even stated the running time as 1hr 11min when it should have been 1hr 51min.i think it has something to do with the magical 700 mb.what do you think.thanks
I just posted a tutorial
It is for use with Nero Vision. Hope it helps. I know this is an old thread, but I just had this same problem.
I am very slow about the computer use. I have a Toshiba Laptop. I know how to burn dvds to a disc, but my problem is I don’t know how to g burn them so I can watch them on my laptop. They are burned in an AVI format which my laptop will not play. I need to know in very simple terms what I should do.
Well there is an alternative solution to playing an .avi on your home television without having to convert. Since your computer has the capability of playing the .avi compressed video format you could use it as the source and get a VGA or S-Video (for video) cable and a RCA jack stereo cable (for audio) or if your laptop and television has a HDMI port then you can use that for video and audio.
I burned AVIs before, I thought I knew everything about untill recently. TVs 60hz and 50z older TVs(I hav no idea what it means)older TVs(Im not talking about black and white) do not have a higher HZ thingee, although my DVD movies works ok, if you wanna watch AVIs with a lower TV HZ you wont get a picture just sound. AVIs are either, correct me if im wrong, are either 12bit or 24bit(again no idea)the 12 bit works fine......Anyone know what im talking, cause I sure hell dodnt
