Most downloaded films are in AVI format. to convert them you can use WinAviVideo to convert them to DVD format, it allows you to automatically insert chapters etc. After you have converted the film, it is stored in Vob format (DVD) to the hard Drive (to a Folder that you have designated at the start of converting). To burn the film (File) to DVD use DVFAB Express Mode (Free to download on The web) And Hey Presto you have a DVD that will play on almost any Player. Also with both these progs you can choose Pal or NTSC and 4:3 or 16:9 format or automatic (recommended). I use these two programs and have a 99% success rate. I hope this helps you friend.

Also you can download VirtualDub free. this program allows you to edit the file to change audio and video and use various filters to change contrast, brightness, colour etc etc.

Merry Christmas from EddyT in the UK

Ps WinAviVideo will also convert other formats as well.

Most movies are in divx (the mp3 of video) and you can now get dvd players that play divx so it is just a matter of putting it on a cd (cd because a divx movie fits on one) or of course as Eddyt said you can convert to mpeg2

Hi new year and just reading posts. Just would like to comment on kvcd's. I would recommend not to try and convert them to dvd, designed for cdr's and nero burns them no probs onto cdr. I currently use winavi to convert format to dvd (except kvcd's obviously lol). Use nero vision for tv series, putting more than one episode onto disc.

I use The Film Machine with Cinema Craft Encoder with excellent results.
TFM is free but CCE is not, dry.gif although TFM comes with it's own encoders and easy to use.. The other one I use sometimes to punch one out in only 1 hour is ConvertXtoDvd..i think you can dl the trial ver

I use VSO to convert all Avi's (xvid,divx) it converts/transcodes faster than Nerovision. Once converted burn as normal with Nero.

If you are DL torrents try and stick with xvid it is simple to unrar them to avi files and convert them to DVD with VSO ConvertXtoDVD.
Great program you can add subtitles also if needed.
Lots of tutorials out there if you look on the net.
