Hi, I have been trying with vain to convert my avi to dvd format. Tried all the guides from this website, tried forums etc. So, I am not so fussy about quality and surround sound etc.... So is this possible --> Extract AVI audio to MP2 --> Convert AVI to MPEG (using MP2 as audio input) --> Burn onto DVD-R --> play it using my standalone DVD player. The last comment is most important, I want to play in my DVD player which does not play AVI files. Having done this, can I still use the left over 2.5GIGs on my blank DVD to burn another movie using above process - therefore should my stand alone DVD player also play the 2nd movie. So I am saving space, and achieving my goal of playing it in my standalone DVD player. Anyone?
