    How can I put a .avi file in my own DVD?

    What apps do I have to use? If possible, free apps...
    ;)

    Well I'm not sure if iDVD directly supports AVI files, but if you have Roxio Toast you can do it directly.

    BUT, if you want to do it with iDVD. Convert your AVI to MP4 with Handbrake. Then open iDVD, start new project or w/e (don't have it in front of me), then drag the MP4 into iDVD, select your menu layouts (if any). Then hit burn.

    Of course you can bypass the conversion to MP4 if iDVD does support AVI.

    Install perian, and you can burn virtally any format you want to DVD using iDVD, as it uses quicktime for video decoding.

    That would be quicker, but Perian overrides the default AVC (MP4) decoder and also overrides a purchased Divx decoder.

    Toast Titanium also converts .rmvb in .avi?

    Thanks.

    I think the only way to play real media files on mac is via the real media player.. You could try VLC as it has 'partial' support and if it plays, try transcoding it.

    I run .rmvb in my iMac with Real Player, it works great.

    But I would like to watch the video in my TV through PS3 (media link). And it doesn't work with .rmvb (at least until I know...)!

    Suggestion?

    Never heard of it... but doesn't hurt to try :). Just make sure you set good output quality settings!:D
