    Hey all,

    My question is a simple as the title. I have a bunch of .avi files and I want to know if there is a simple way (with Toast 8 or another program) to burn them to DVDs that can be played in a regular player. Thanks.

    Yup its very easy. You drag and drop them into Toast 8 under Video part. It will them convert them into video_ts files which are what dvd players read, and then burn it for you.

    Which option should I use under video? There are 5: Video CD, Super Video CD, DVD-Video, Video_TS Folder and Divx Disc? Thanks.

    Hi, I don't know if Maclarny's question was answered in a private message, or is still unanswered. Regardless I have the same question

    Thanks!

    just make sure your home DVD player works with DVD-R

    test it in the OS X dvd player if you want.

    I ended up using Burn, which I actually already had but never tried it. It's very simple and produces excellent results. Thanks all!
