A good friend of mine contacted me last night with a question. He had an AVI file and wanted to know how he could get this file onto a DVD in a format that is compatible with a standard set-top DVD player.
So the question is, how do you convert an AVI to DVD or another video file to DVD? This type of activity requires re-encoding software and most of them will cost you money. There is a free alternative though. Try out AVI2DVD. AVI2DVD is a GUI (Graphical User Interface) suite of freeware programs. You can use it to convert your AVI files into a DVD compatible format and then burn the resulting file(s) to a disc. Afterwards, you can enjoy the video on a standard DVD set-top player.
