    Why is it that an 200MB AVI video file uses up 2GB of space when I try to burn it as a DVD-Video. This can't be right. I know if i burn it as data then it says the same size but this is no good since a dvd player won't read it right?... I've read your AVI to DVD tutorial and tried it with a video, I don't understand, the video ended up being larger and that didn't help the situation. Surely you don't have to go through that whole process everytime you want to burn an avi video into a DVD video. I have this program called Ulead DVD factory which I think doesn't require you to do this process. Please help I'm totally clueless and frustrated.

    Unfortunately that is the process you have to use with AVI files. They have to be converted to dvd compatible format. I don't know of a quick way around it.

    OK but I don't understand how this works, if i try to burn a movie it will be far to large to fit on the DVD. I can only fit two 200 MB vids onto a DVD...this doesn't make sense!!!! ARRRRRR
