I burn 26GB .AVI's with menus to a 4.7gb recordable DVD using Adobe encore or just the movie using Premier Pro.
The software 'fits' the video onto the available DVD space using compression.
This is NOT the same as trying to burn a 26GB .AVI file to a DVD as 'Data' - which will obviously not fit.
I'm not really sure what you mean by that statement so I have no answer.
When i play the file through windows media player in full screen it looks really distorted
