I am looking for software that will convert Various Video Files including divx avi mpeg etc to DVD Format. I have been using Burn but it does not convert all formats which is not good.

Anyone got any other suggestions (free or paid)

Thanks in Advance :)

I've used iMovie for simple converting of a few different video types. Just import the file, put it on the time line and then create the DVD.

Well just wasted 2 hours with iDVD, it encoded the file burnt it to disc and when it plays the DVD all you get is a green screen.

Guess I will have to go with Roxio Toast.
That is because it didn't recognise the codec of the source file, as iDVD is meant for iMovie projects and direct from camera to DVD burning and compatible files.
.avi files and the like are NOT compatible.

Thats fair enough but would be nice if the app threw up a message saying the file is not compatible rather than going ahead and encoding/burning it :D

Well.....using Roxio it burns the file and the video plays but it does not detect any audio within the video file.

So getting closer I have video now just no audio :D

Will try DVD Studio Pro now and report back.

You have DVD Studio Pro? Why didn't you tell us? It is hundreds of times better than iDVD and Roxio. I guess you use Compressor then?

OK backtracked a little I have Roxio working now with audio.

All I had to do was install Perian Codec Pack and it works fine :)

Perfect for the Drag and Drop solution I was looking for!

Thanks for everyones input :cool:
