    I have about 60+ movies that i have downloaded and i need to burn them to DVD.. i no nero does it fine but it takes 2hrs + to make one movie. Is there an easier way to maybe convert the AVI DiVx file to a ISO or another type of file that can be burned in less time then possible?.. Like another programs or something? Ty

    If your looking for simple drag & drop DVD burning Nero is probably the fastest you will get. The truth about burning DVD's is that it's not a quick and simple process especially when dealing with multiple videos, and even more so if those videos came from different sources.

    The reason Nero is taking so long to burn your compilation is that it must encode each one of those videos before it actually burns them, unfortunately Nero is not a very good encoder, and if you have PAL format videos you will probably have audio sync problems, and if you have PAL videos mixed in with NTSC on the same DVD some of your videos may not play at all. Nero is "user friendly" DVD authoring, keeping in mind "user friendly" = crappy.

    2hrs for 60 random clips isn't too bad, It sometime takes that long to encode 1 movie using a program like TMPGENC, Nero is the best user friendly drag & drop program that I know of.

    Don't be suprised if some of the videos don't play tho. I did the same thing with Nero a while back and about half the videos were just black screen.

    ouch. ok then you need a good introduction to video formats.

    This is what I would do:

    First step is to download and install gspot from here:
    http://www.majorgeeks.com/download4293.html

    gspot simply gives you info about video files.

    You will have to open each video with gspot to find out if each file is a PAL or NTSC here is how you can tell:

    PAL: 25fps (frames per second), 720x540 video size- aka resolution
    NTSC: 29.97fps, 30fps, 23.97fps, or 24fps 720x480 video size

    seperate the PAL files from the NTSC files
    you may also have to seperate them by video size

    try burning just the NTSC files in Nero and see if that helps the encoding time. Also try burning just the NTSC files that have common video sizes.

    If you are unfamiliar with PAL and NTSC or encoding browse around this sight, check out the AVI to DVD sections.

    Do a search within this forum for multiple avi's to dvd

    I don't see why you couldn't as long as there isn't a sharing violation between common files it shouldn't be a problem. May slow down the cpu processing time tho.

    Are you sure you fully downloaded the exe?
    You need to run the exe and install gspot on your PC
    here's another link to download:

    An ISO is a DVD/CD Image you It would take just as long to create an ISO as a DVD because you are esentially creating the same thing. Nero should have an option to burn to image.

    All DVD's are mpegs (MP2 to be exact), nero is converting those files to mp2's, that's what's taking so long.

    You can use an encoder to convert the avi's to MP2's yourself.
    convertxtoDVD, CinemaCraftEncoder, to name a couple.

    Actually the way to go might be to append all your avi's using vdubmod this will create one long avi from all your clips.
