    I went to the website and looked for the program called "Burn" but I couldn't tell what files it uses. I have .avi and .mkv files and I need them to play on a DVD player. I know if they are converted to Video_TS files that BURN will put those on a DVD but I need to know if I can go straight from .mkv and .avi or mpeg to a DVD that can be played on a DVD player using the Burn program.

    Can it?

    From the Help of Burn - graphics not included.

    Burning Video Discs:
    Burn can create four types of video discs. VCD is the first digital video disc format. After that came SVCD which has a higher resolution. Then came DVD-Video discs which are now the common way to distribute digital video. A lot of the modern DVD-Players can play DivX discs. This format is especially popular on the internet. DivX files are often a lot smaller than MPEG2 (used on DVD-Video discs), but still look and sound reasonable.

    1 Select a format
    Choose a format in the popup. It's important to know which video-discs are supported by your player. Check your manual or player to see what's supported.



    2 Select some video files
    Select some video files, most video files are supported.
    Note: some protected QuickTime files may not work.



    3 Drop them in the list:
    Drop the selected files in the list. If the files are already the right format they will be added. If not Burn will ask to convert them to the right format.





    4 Click on Burn
    This will bring up a dialog.



    5 Choose options
    Choose options for the burning session. For more settings, see the Preferences under the Burn menu.


    6 Burn the disc
    Now click Burn to burn the disc.



    7 Burn will burn the disc
    While burning Burn will show a dialog with the status of the burn.

    You have to convert them first as it seems. Have you tried MPEG Streamclip?

    Btw, are those MKVs in HD?
