    I have been trying to backup a few .avi files I have onto DVDs and after reading over the forums I have aquired ffmpegx and Toast 8. I place the avi file into ffmpex, encode it with the dvdffmpeg format. But once i burn it with toast, it takes the original wide screen avi file and stretches it to full screen. I tried re-encoding with the DVD 16:9 setting selected with ffmpeg and it seems to look better in a preview, but when I try and burn the Video_TS folder in Toast it gives me the CSS Encryption disk error, which I do not understand because I'm not copying a copyrighted dvd. If anyone can help or direct me to the right place to re-post this please let me know. Thanks.

    you could just drop the avi file into toast and it will encode it for you.

    When I do that it burns the DVD but the audio is out of sync. I got a program that recodes the sound into the 48bit or whatever format it needs for Toast to burn it but the file was growing to a size of 20GB and ran out of room.
