My head is boggled by this. Every DVD burning program I have does it. Just open the program, open AVI file and start burning DVD. I would imagine this means the burning program automatically converts it to mpeg2 while burning. If anyone has a reason why I should first convert to mpeg2 before burning please tell me. It seems unnecessary, and I'm editing a full quality full feature movie and burning it this way.The DVD burning programs I use are free too. Please unboggle my mind here.
