    I have a few divx videos i want to fit all in one DVD DL disk. I was thinking of maybe reencoding them so i can achieve smaller file sizes in order to fit. Is it possible, what app will i have to use?

    Depends what you want to do. If you just want to store them there, you could use Quicktime Pro to transcode them. If you want them to play in a DVD player, you could use Toast Titanium to compress and encode them into DVD-compatible files.

    I want them stored on a DVD DL disk in order to view them later using QTime or any other video player!

    Wow handbreak is exceptional and yes it is very easy to use! Thanx for recommending it!
    Can it be used to convert divx with subs to DVD5 format?
