    Heya...

    So, Toast converts my avis to DVD, (very slowly), but my DVD player won't read the disc --

    I've tried converting via ffmpeg, but I'm not sure how to convert two avi files into one VIDEO_TS folder -- any help?

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Can you not use something like VisualHub or ffmpegX to join the two files and then let Toast upconvert?

    May be 2 months too late, but look for a freeware program called Burn (recommended to me by a forum member). You can drag-and-drop multiple AVIs into it. It'll first convert them to mpeg-2. Then, you repeat with those and it'll generate one video_ts folder that contains all of your files. Note that AVIs are smaller sizes than the corresponding mpegs, so you'll need to make sure there's enough disc space on a DVD (4.7GB) to combine the files into a single folder.

    I believe Burn is a frontend for ffmpegx, but it's much easier, cleaner (and smaller?) than the latter.

    I agree with epochblue...use VisualHub, drag in the .avi files you want, then Select DVD from the top, and it will ask if you want to author a DVD. Checkmark it or accept or whatever, and then it will make them the right size to fit on a DVD.

    Best,
