    I recorded a bunch of TV shows on my TV tuner card on my PC in Divx format, they play with Divx Player. They are all around 150 mb (30 min shows) I thought about buring them to a data DVD, but I wanted to watch them on the TV. My PC's DVD-RW came with a peice of software called MyDVD. It makes DVDs. I made a main menu screen and inported one of the 150 mb videos. To my surpise it read that each one was was over a gig. Only 4 of the 150 files would fit on a whole DVD?! My firend said that it converted them from AVI to MPEG2. Ok I thought. Then I looked on google. I DLed about 10 apps for PC that claimed they could convert AVI to MPEG. Only one worked, no matter what options i used or changed I couldn't get any audio. And it would only convert 1/2 the files. So no go. Thanks XP!

    I searched MR. I found some stuff on how to do it. I transfered the video to my Mac. But what now?! I don't have idvd and my DVD burner is in my PC.
    I also have quicktime Pro on my PC but I couldn't convert it.

    Is there any app or anyway I can do this?

    Please help! Thanks so much guys!

    Toast Titanium might work, as long as you have the DivX component for Quicktime installed. I was able to convert some DivX files to SVCD (also MPEG2) with it, and there's an option for DVD in there. No guarantees though, and it took a LONG time.

    What's the file size like? I need to fit about 10 23min files on to 4.7 gig DVD. It seems VERY pointless and frustrating that the orignal file is 150 mb and the converted one is over 10X as big with the same quality and size?!:rolleyes:
