    Is there any converter software out there (demo or freeware) that will let me convert my avi to mpg so I can then burn it to play in a dvd player?

    Hi
    If you look at my thread about mpeg to video converter(next to this posting), I have had similar suggestions.
    I have now got ffmpegX to work, albiet every time I enter the programme I have to tell it where to find mpeg2enc.
    This is all quiet new to me also and it seems as tho someone could kindly write a step by step way of converting and burning.....I still have not found a suitable way of either mpeg or avi to convert to a VIDEO_TS file....perhaps I am just computer illiterate!!! but ffmpegX does give too many confusing alternatives...so I keep trying different conversions.....if I succeed, I will post back......BUT in the meantime would some kind soul PLEASE write a step by step instruction.....reading other posts, its obvious that there are a number of us thickies out here!!

    Actually that is a good idea geof. I havent used it yet but I did download it and launched the proggy and it looks pretty serious so that step by step would help.
