    Hey

    My DVD player will not support MPEG'S or AVI's, is there anyway they can be converted to work in a standard DVD player?

    Thanks

    Toast normally does the trick for me. I'm not sure that it'll support every variation, but the few files I've tried have worked without a problem.

    Just drag your files into the Video pane, select DVD-Video, and hit record. Toast will convert the files before burning.

    I own about 800 DVD's.

    I would love to start ripping them to my mac and stream them to my TV, If i did this (which is legal as i own the original) could i then sell the ogirinal and keep the reciept as proof that i owned it? or as soon as i sell it, legally, do i have to delete my copy of the DVD?

    Many Thanks

    Yes, you would have to delete the copies if you sell the originals.
