Thread: divx (avi) to DVDshrink to DVDR

  1. #1

    Question Mark

    what is the best method to make a DVD from a divx avi file?

    Ideally the more divx movies I can fit onto a single DVD the better.

    How many have you ever managed to fit on single DVD?

    If a movie was 700mb how many could i get onto a DVD and the same question for a 1.4gig movie?

    you can burn .avi movies on a DVD as DATA, but then you can only watch the files on your pc or DVD player that supports MPEG4. (4300:700 = 6 700mb movies on a DVD)

    if you want to watch them on a normal DVD player you need to convert the video files.

    Nero can take your Divx movies and make them into DVD's with menus
    But unless make nero burn the highest quality possible you will lose a lot of quality.
    This will also increase the size of the files and you may only be able to get 2-3 Divx movies on a 4.7GB DVD
    Like {I}{K}{E} said it is better just to get a DVD player that can play Divx files
    I was able to fit 22 episodes of the show LOST on one 4.7GB DVD as a data disc.
    I just found a Divx compatible DVD player for $56 at Target/Wal-Mart in USA

    I use WinAvi Converter
    it converts my DivX(orXvid) to DVD, and just as it is, I burn it to a DVD disc
    with CloneDVD.
    But if you wan't to make it a multi feature disc,
    well, I've only done it once, I did the mentioned before stuf, and then
    with DVDLab edited the DVD with two movies and a simple but impresive menu.
    But this took me like four to five hours.

    So I guess that's why I agree with matt,
    when you know the deal with downloading movies oand TV shows,
    a DVD DivX Compatible Player is the best way to go.
    I've used and recomend this one or this .

    matt526, you say you managed to fit 22 eps. of LOST on a DVD-R,
    so I wonder, what was the size of each of those files?
    cus the most episodes I can put on a DVD-R is 12 (350mb eps.)
