well guys im totally new when it comes to DVD burning and such - i have lots of .avi format movies and also .mpg movies that I would like to burn to a dvd disc - I have tried numerous programs but none of them convert the .avi format to a dvd format (mpeg2 i think) without messing up the quality and making it so bad its crazy....maybe i havent tried the right programs - so I would really appreciate anybody with some experience for a short writeup or few tips when converting and burning .avi formats to a dvd

thank u so much

disturbed- this is something I posted a month ago. If you nered more help post again or PM me. The program TMPGEnc can be used to splice together all kinds of video files. Check out the link below...tons of info at that site. Hope this helps.

B


Copying the vts_xxx.vob files from a dvd and trying to burn them to your own dvd won't work. You need to rip those files from the dvd . The ripper will disable any copy protection and strip the region info. After ripping the dvd, you can then play those files from your hard drive with say something like PowerDVD or a similar program. PowerDVD or similar players will allow you to generate a playlist of the VOB files so that the movie plays continuously from VOB to VOB thru to the end.

To burn (backup) a movie to your own blank DVD you'll then need to process those files and convert to *.mpg. This can be a MPEG-1 (free) or (better quality) MPEG-2 ( the software upgrade/plugin for this cost a few bucks, not much...20 to 30 dollars. The MPEG-2 file will produce a superior copy. If you do it right, indistinquishable from the original DVD.

The three programs pitbull481 suggests is a good choice. Easy to use. But if you want to shoot for high quality mpeg-2, plus have control  and editing capability, go this route:

SMARTRIPPER
DVD2AVI
TMPGEnc

I've been using thes for three years Besides processing video files for backups, TMPGEnc has other tools for editing video files together, or for breaking scenes out of movies. This will also handle format conversion, ie wide screen (16:9 to 4:3) for viewing on a regular TV. You can also split up the files for burning to multiple CDs which will also play on set top DVD players and on computers with most all media players..

You can find these downloads also on  www.doom9.org

SMARTRIPPER and DVD2AVI are freeware, as is TMPGEnc for MPEG-1 encoding. If you want to move up to MPEG-2 (free to use for 30 days) you'll have to shell out for the upgrade. Believe me, well worth it.

After processing, an average length feature film results in a 2GB file. Can burn two movies to a single layer DVD. The DVDs will play on computer and set top DVD players. Use the correct settings and some patience and you can produce some excellent copies (backups) of the movies you own. I have played back these copies on 61" plasma screens and compared them to the original DVD. Very little difference. The key is the final processing in TMPGEnc. It will take a long time. 2 to 3 hours on a dual cpu machine, up to 7 hours on a 2GB AMD. Run the process overnight, your machine will be worthless while processing the video file.

Persoanally, I keep the VOB files on a HD and create playlists for each of the movies. I am then able to access the movies from any machine on the network (hardwired, doesn't do well over 11b OR g... just not fast enough)

You should be able to find all you need on doom9. Follow the links to the individual websites for the individual programs and find more links to a bucket full of various plug-ins and video codecs that can improve the quality of your recordings as well as your playback capability thru all media players.

A lot of that information won’t help because he wants to take files from his system and burn them to DVD.
Sadly, .avi files are already compressed and when converting them back to mpeg-2 will give you poor quality files.
I will help with this matter later.

www.dvd-guides.com

I've been using this site for a while. It's a great resource for anything DVD.

But for your case here's the direct link: http://www.dvd-guides.com/content/view/52/59/

That guide is for DivX/XviD files, but you still follow the same process even if it's not DivX or XviD. If you run into any problems, post here and let me know. I do a lot of *.avi to DVD.  ;)

im in process of converting this .avi to a mpeg2 file - i think the quality will be great (will tell the results) and im using a program called TMPGEnc - it seems good, the only downside to this is that it takes long long loooooooong time to decode an .avi file - its already doing it about 10 hours, got about same amount of time left Smile

Yeah. That's the program I use. On my computer for an hour and thirty minute movie takes about 3 hours. From *.avi to *.vob (DVD files).

You might have an older computer?

I have an AMD Athlon XP 3200+ CPU. Of course the CPU isn't the only thing that makes the process time vary. But it's the main thing.  :haha:
