    I converted an AVI video to DVD and it plays on a PC but not on a DVD player. I have created DVDs from other AVI videos without this problem. Any suggestions?

    If it was correctly authored using decent software, plays OK on the PC and it's not a PAL version being played on an NTSC standalone, then that suggests the media.
    The only readily available disks that are consistently reliable are Verbatim disks (not their 'Value Series')which say 'AZO' on the package and have been burned at a moderate speed.

    Thanx for the response. This file was converted to IFO/VOB files with AVI2DVD, saved to ISO with Shrink and burned to disc with Imgburn. I only use Verbatim DVD-R discs (95102-4.7GB) and DVD+R discs (95310-8.5GB). (I have always burned at the default speed in Imageburn/Decrypter.) I no longer have the AVI file to look at, but I do have the IFO/VOB files; is there a way to decipher the version (PAL/NTSC) from the IFO/VOB files?

    Thanx much. I downloaded Gspot from your link and, sure enough, it read the AVI file and it was PAL output. I will watch that PAL to NTSC conversion whenever I'm using AVI2DVD.

    Not all AVI can be supported by DVD player actually. AVI is a container video format which may encoded with different video codecs like DivX, Xvid, MPEG-4, H.263, WMV, MPEG-1 and etc. If the AVI video is not encoded the DVD player compatible codec, DVD player won’t play AVI files. In fact, some too old standalone DVD players can’t play AVI at all. Only new DVD players can play AVI files which is encoded with DivX.

    Sam that problem might be explained by the fact really old players don't play burned disks because they are not reflective enough.
