    Playing an .avi file on a normal DVD player?

    Afternoon all.

    I have a .avi file that I want to put onto a DVD for my Mum to play on her standard DVD player.

    Haven't done it before so would appreciate some pointers pleeeeeease!

    Firstly, I have DVD-R discs, will they be okay?
    I already have ImgBurn on my computer, will it do the job?
    Do I need to convert the file into a different format before burning to disc? If so, which format should it be and what program can I use to convert the file?

    Thanks very much, rep will be left for help?

    Try usung Convertx2DVD or Nero

    Depends if your mums dvd payer can accept divx/xvid files, which some can. If so you can burn it to a cd/dvd as is, ie straight avi file, if not then youll have to convert it as mentioned above ;-)

    Nero should convert it to the correct format as it does it.

    Thanks, neither of those seem to be free, though - only want to do one conversion so not worth it
