I have downloaded an avi file (680kb's) that I have viewed on my pc and it looks and sounds good. I want to convert that file as best as possible to be played on my DVD player. From reading threads, it appears converting it on a DVD media is the best. I could not find a conslusive guide or thread to generate a DVD from an avi? Could some one help with the answer and process (in detail). Newbie is kind for me. Also, is CVD better or worse than VCD in quality and playability on standalones? I was successful in converting the avi file to a vcd by following a thread posted using TMPGenc and burning it on Nero (on two cd's). I could not get sound in the player but was ok in PC. May be a player problem. But, the quality wasn't quite as good either, so I think I want a better conversion. I understand the SVCD is better than VCD, but may be less likely to play on some DVD players. If needed, my system is AMD Duron, 320ram, (2) 20gb hd's, & Win ME. Thanks.
