I'm looking for a program to convert avi files to burn to a dvd to play on my TV. I've tried dvd flick, convertxtodvd and built in program, its toooo slooow, and the first 2 only play on my pc. It shows as 'unformatted' on my home player. Any suggestions please. :thumbsup:

You may have some old DVD player.
DVDs burned with either DVDFlick, or ConvertXToDvd play perfectly fine on standalone DVD players.
As for being slow, I can't help you, because burning a movie simply takes time.
...or buy DVD player with USB port and you won't have to convert anything. It'll play straight .avi files.

Hmmm, are you sure? Did you check the conversion settings, before you initiated it?

or buy DVD player with USB port and you won't have to convert anything. It'll play straight .avi files.

Or maybe the ones that support 'DivX' playback.
If your AVI files are 'DivX' encoded, you simply have to write them onto a disc and be able to play them right away.
Alternatively, you could convert your standard AVI files to the DivX format.

Hi Broni and ReviverSoft, I misprinted, only built in dvd maker is slow. As to DVD Flick and ConvertXtodvd, I did read the help sections and I keep a short .avi file for testing purposes and could not get them to play on either of my 2 Panasonic HDD/DVD recorders, both still within warranty period. I also own an Iomega Multimedia player, it is now used for only music. If, as I normally do, play the film files on my pc before putting them into it, to make sure its in English and I have the full film, the Iomega occassionally is unable to read them. Conclusion-if it was not for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all.
Thanks for info about 'DivX' will try it soon.
