    Anyone know how to burn avi's to dvd? I've tried a couple of things and it never turns out to be a playable dvd.

    you can do it in Toast Titanium, just drag the .avi into the program, select dvd-video, select your menu and other preferences, and burn.

    you can also do it in idvd.

    that's what I originally did in toast and when I put it in the dvd player it wouldn't work, I'm using idvd right now and The rendering process takes hours. Do you know of faster ways of doing this?

    I've had no probs using Toast... maybe your settings are wrong? I've never had a problem, although encoding does take a while just like in iDVD.


    I've been using Sony DVD+R dics without any problems since I started burning DVDs.

    Maybe it's the dvd player, it's a day older than dirt. I'll have to try it on my mac. I found that toast took just as long as idvd though. I'll have to check the settings and try again

    idk, I've tried the same thing in Toast and it doesn't work on my 360 which plays burned DVDs all the time. I also tried it on my actual computer, and on a few other DVD players. I get video but no sound.
