    You will always lose quality with a AVI movie when you convert it to another format. Most downloded movies aren't in that high of quality to begin with anyway so you are never going to get real good quality.

    There is a guide at my website (Link in Sig) called <Convert AVI to DVD> This produces very good quality, but again it all depends on the file you are starting with.

    Depends on the format it is but usually yes it will be bigger. How much bigger again depends on the original format. Generally it is 3 to 4 time larger after converting.
