    I shot some .avi video with my video camera of some family events and want to burn those videos to DVD so relatives can play them on a DVD player. What is a good program to do that with?

    All I need to make is a simple menu and then start the video.

    convertXtodvd is fantastic imo.
    great menu customization and alot of presetup templates
    where all u do is drag-drop type in the title and hit convert/burn whichs does it all.

    I'd probably say nero. It's easy e-nuff to use, and has a fair few options.

    :werd: Good program. A few clicks and you're done.

    But, any DVD maker program will do what you need.

    Which Nero is it. I tried using Nero lastnight, seemed to work. Got the DVD done, put it in the DVD player.. and couldn't read it.

    Can someone maybe give some steps on nero or screen shots?

    Did you use Vision or did you just throw the AVI's on a data DVD and call it a day?

    It said it was encoding it... took 2 or so hours.. Did it's process... then spit the DVD out.

    I was going to mess with it somemore but would like to get it figured out before i use up somemore DVD's on trail and error

    That is awsome!! Looks like a lot of help. I will try when i get home.

    I used DVDFlick once.. and i have like 6gig free on hard drive.. then as DVDFlick got towards the end.. There was an error.. I bet it ran out of room.. No i cleaned it up and got 15gig back..

    Thanks!

    I'd check it on your own computer DVD player first. Some consumer DVD players don't play burnt DVD's.

    how old is the player then? These days most players will play all the formats, but I know the older players did not.

    Great news...! It WORKED! DVDFlick is awsome. I started right before i went to bed.. woke up this morning with a new DVD.

    It didnt work the first time because my hard drive did not have enough space on it.

    I recommend DVDFlick to everyone. So simple
