    I was wondering how an AVI file can be converted to play in a DVD player. Which software should be used, and what should the AVI be converted to? Thanks for your help.

    Download and install the DivX QuickTime codec. You will now be able to drag your AVI file into iMovie. When you finish editing your file, you may then call iDVD by pressing its button. Burn your movie to DVD.

    I tried doing this and got an error message saying that the clip I was trying to load was too long (over 9 1/2 minutes) Am I missing something here?

    My porn clips are all shorter than that. Sorry. You might drag your clip into iMovie to see if you can play it there.

    You should try getting an app called ffmpegX, it lets you convert from one format to another (including .avi to mpeg2 for dvds).

    Another thing you can try, is to just drop the .avi into iDVD or Toast (assuming you have a dvd burner). It should automatically convert to the appropriate format and then you can burn a DVD, all though make sure you have a lot of free memory if you use iDVD. It converts to DV first I think, which uses ~20 GB for a hour and a half movie.
