    If the player supports the Dvix codec, tyou might be in good shape if the AVIs are using Dvix

    other wise AVI2DVD transcodes and end result is an ISO which you can use just about anything to burn the ISO to DVDR

    first get TMGEnc...(link below)
    http://www.tmpgenc.net/en/e_main.html

    now follow my tut...(below)


    configuring TMPGEnc for VCD format aka mpeg

    1. open up TMPGENC (close wizard)
    2. click Load (bottom lower right) > template > open VideoCD (NTSCFilm).mcf
    3. click Load again > template > extra > double click on "unlock.mcf"
    4. click Setting > Video...now make sure
    - stream type: mpeg1 video
    - size: 352x240
    - aspect ratio: 4:3 525 line (NTSC)
    - frame rate: 23.976
    - rate control mode: (CBR)
    - bitrate: 900 kbs
    - VBV buffer size: 40 kb
    - motion search precision: normal or high quality
    > Advanced...leave alone
    > GOP structure...leave alone
    > Quantize matrix...leave alone
    > Audio...make sure
    - stream type: mpeg-1 audio layer II
    - sampling frequency: 44100 hz
    - channel mode: stereo
    - bitrate: 96 kbs
    - deemphasis flag: none
    > System...make sure
    - stream type: mpeg-1 video-cd (non standard)
    5. now click "OK" and "save" the setting (something u will remember)...dis will be save as a template now

    now da converting part...

    1. open up da wizard > select format (use da one u just configure) > load a video to convert (browse)
    2. click "next" all da way to step 4 (4/5...should be in "Bitrate Setting" page)
    3. at da BRS page...make sure
    - average video bitrate: 1050 kbs (or if u could go higher by clickin on arrows)
    - audio bitrate: 96
    - estimated file size: 697 mb
    - where it says "unknown media"...make it to da size of disk for ex. cd-r 80min (VCD/SVCD)
    - makes file size: 88% of disc capacity (but if u could, try to go higher by clicking arrows)
    4. name da output and your finish...click ok

    NOTE: some avi's will have compressed audio that tmpgenc can't handle...meaning sound problems

    soooo...to compress audio, u need VIRTUALDUB (one that also supports mpeg2)

    1. open up avi file (one u gona convert/encode etc)...if u get some kind of audio warning just click okay
    2. click "audio" > click "full processing mode" "on"
    > click "compression"...make sure its set at "no compression (PCM)" (da 1st one on top)
    > click "conversion"....make sure
    - sampling rate: custom: 41000
    - precision: 8bit
    - channels: stereo
    > then click "OK"
    3. make sure u have space on your hard drive and
    click "file" > "save WAV" (choose name and location for file) > click "OK"
    4. after it finish, use this new wave file as your audio source when encoding with tmpgenc
    and THATS IT...FINISH!!!



    then use whatever to burn (nero, ulead, etc..)

    Nero should be able to do the transcoding and burning, no need for an image then.


    @rocklee
    TMGEnc is good, don't get me wrong, but holy shit that's a lot of steps and settings to make sure of.

    AVI2DVD http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/avi_to_dvd_avi2dvd.cfm
    Cliffs:
    1. Load AVI(s)
    2. Select DVD/SVCD or VCD, in this case DVD
    3. Select the encoder
    4. Add subtitles (obviously this is optional)
    5. Click GO
    6. Burn ISO to DVD

    //edit
    You want him to take a good quality AVI (I'm assuming) and covert it down to something just barely better than VSH quality (make it a VCD in the first part), then increase the bitrate of an already lower bitrate video (part 2), then rip out the audio to wav (part 3).
    What a complete waste of time and completely destroy the video for no reason.

    Without killing the quality too much, DVD5 (better known as DVDR single lasyer 4.73GB) you can get 2 hours of video.
    DVD9 (aka dual-layer DVD) well obviously double that, about 4hours.

    So it would depends how long each episode is as to how many you can get.

    my way is pretty much the best way since u can determine how many episodes u want by converting the avi's to a specific size (but u will need to sacrifice the quality if u want more episodes on disc)...but do whatever u want to do...sleepy time :o

    I don't think you get.

    High quality video goes into TMGEnc (at your settings) comes out as much lower quality video. Then you try to raise the quality of the video, which you can't do.

    Look try this some time, the idea is the same. Take a CD, rip a song using your ripper of choice, and set it to 320kbps. Now take the same song and rip it again but at 64kbps. Then take the 64kbps and re-encode it to 320kbps.
    Now listen to all 3, starting with the original 320kbps that was ripped. Then listen to the 64kbps rip followed but the 320kbps re-encoded.

    The same sort of thing happens with what you're doing to those videos.
    If those videos he has are crap to start with, then true making them into a DVD won't help with the video quality but he'll still be able to video them on a DVD player.
    If you take high quality (bitrate) video, lower the bitrate then try and raise it up again to DVD level all you'll really get is the quality of that lower bitrate.
    VCD = digital quality VHS tape.
    SVCD = as close to DVD as you can get using the MPEG family and not still be DVD bitrate

    avi -> tmpengc -> mpeg2 dvd

    isn't worth the effort.

    the last time i remember doing it a 24 minute episode was taking 3 hours to transcode, then you run into the problem of mastering menus for your dvd.

    i did all of rahxephon to dvd and used adobe encore to master the dvd, ugh jesus it took me 2 months, after that i just went out and bought a mpeg4 capable dvd player.

    now that mpeg4 capable dvd players are $50 theres really no reason to transcode and master to dvd unless you plan on making up a few hundred copies to put on ebay or amazon.

    just so you know with xvid DVD players, the popular Phillips DVP642 doesn't resize the video to fit the screen, so you're going to have partially cut off subtitles which is annoying as hell. :hs:

    takes me only 20 min for me to convert episodes using tmpgenc :coolugh:

    for burning i use nerovision (for menus etc.)...and 8 episodes per disc.
