View Full Version : Playing downloaded avi movie files on a DVD player

03-13-2004, 12:31 PM
I have downloaded a 700 mb avi file which playes OK through my Windows Media Player. However, I would like to be able to watch the movie in the comfort of my lounge room using a DVD player and widescreen TV.

Previoulsy I have converted DVD files to VCD and these played through my DVD.

I tried converting the avi files to VCD format using the program Aare AVI to VCD DVD. The converted file doubled in size but I couldn't burn it to disc using Nero. Could any person give me a brief outline on what I need to do to make this avi file playable on a DVD.

try TMPGenc. it will convert AVI file into MPEG which can be easily used to make VCD.

Thank you for your response.

TMPGEnc will certainly do the job if you know how to do this rather tricky job.

I was fortunate to locate a comprehensive guide called :-

Gary's AVI to SVCD 3-Step foolproof guide. This can be downloaded at:-


This guide is one of the best that I have ever seen. "Gary' is a great writer and teacher.
