    Ok so i keep running into this issue. i have toast 7 titanium, I have .avi tv shows. I want to make a svcd of the tv show BUT it is over 700mb... I could make a dvd... but I'd rather use up my cdrs. IS there a way/program that will allow me to make this fit a cd Or overburn. I don't want to use vcd as it drops too many frames:(
    Any suggestions??

    it's not the size of the source avi that matters, it's the length.

    toast can fit ~ 30 minutes onto an SVCD... so if your source AVI is shorter than that you should be ok, regardless of the size in MB.

    are you sure you want SVCD anyway... many DVD players can't play them back.

    yeah I want svcd.
    My player does playback of svcd so no issue there. My avi is 42 minutes long.
    I am almost thinking that I will just get an apple video adaptor for my ibook shortly so i can play them off of my ibook instead of trying to burn then for one time use.
    Probably a better solution anyway.
    thanks for the input:)
