I've had a lot of .avi files on my computer for some time now that I would like to put onto DVD disc to watch on a larger screen. I have Any Video Converter (Free and seems to work well for what I needed it for) and it allows me to convert .mpg *NTSC. Now after I convert the files I think I have tried just burning them directly to the disk and that did not work. I was wondering what other things I need to do to get them onto the disc. A good free program would be nice since it doesn't need to be professional or anything. And also I would like to put multiple small video files onto the disc also if that is possible with any free programs.

Any help would be great.

You'll need a DVD authoring program to make DVDs that will work on a standard DVD player. DVD Flick is a free and open source DVD authoring program that looks good. I've use it a few times and have no complaints.

Also, if you're planning on burning full-length features then you may need to get some blank dual layer DVDs. Standard DVD-R discs will hold only 4.7GB worth of data whereas dual layer DVD-R discs hold 8.5GB. They cost a pretty penny compared to single layer DVDs though.

Thanks!!

Are there any Free programs that allow you to rip DVD's to you computer? If so what about splitting the movies into parts so they can fit onto cheaper dvd-r discs? Sorry I'm a total noob when it comes to this stuff.

DVD Shrink is such a program, but may be illegal in the United States and other countries.
