    I have about 600 gigs worth of video's I want to put onto DVD. One series in particular has 463+ episodes. Currently I can only fit 5 per DVD - Which is my problem. That's roughly 10-12 DVD's per season with 9 seasons all together. Another is 16 seasons long..

    Someone suggested xvids cartoon mode but I can't seem to find anything related save for vidmex which I don't want to buy. They are all cartoons so I figured that would be perfect.

    I'm open to suggestions on shrinking these down a bit without loosing noticeable quality.

    They are all AVI's btw. And I would really like a way to do batch videos vs. one at a time.

    Wouldn't it be cheaper to buy a DVD player that can handle Divx/Xvid, put twenty episodes on one DVD as data and recoup the savings in disks?
    If the AVI's have to be converted then VirtualDub has a batch function.

    Yes, but let me at least warn him about screen resolution. You can't play just any avi in a standard divx player. Make sure to check the specs on whichever divx player you get. Otherwise you may end of having to recode each and every avi you have <ouch>

    That's a major consideration. Any suggestions on Divx/Xvid dvd players?
