I'm looking to convert .avi files into something I can get to play on a standard DVD player (VCD I would imagine.)

Anything I've found online so far seems to be absolutely horrible, so if you kids had any recommendations, please help a brother out.

(If this goes against any of the piracy/copyright issues I know that have been discussed here, please don't hesitate to turf this thread, mods.)

Have a look at Uleads' DVD Movie Maker. It allows you to do VCD's as well. I think the only dud format is wmv.

It'll help you convert just about any video format to any other video format, point you at the best apps for the job, provide step-by-step instructions, and list reviews for tons of DVD players listing what formats and media-brands they can handle.

VCDs tend to be grainy. After digging through dvdrhelp's guides, consider XVCD, which lets you jack up the bitrate without deviating too much from the VCD standard.

Your lack of personal integrity has given me much grief, and I find that thinking of your hollowed-out head sitting on top of my fridge and providing a safe haven for pickles is a comforting thought."

You might also want to check out the possibility of a dvd player that supports DIVX. You won't have to convert the avi's then (assuming they're encoded with the DIVX codec.)

Otherwise definitely check out (as vsp noted), it's a great site. Click on the tools link and look for Converter Tools. Is usually use TMPGEnc, really great program but it's pretty advanced and you have to really use it alot to get to know it.

Good luck!

Time to flex my help muscells(sp)? heh

I use Nero to make my VCDs. It takes the video, converts it, which takes a few minutes to an hour depending on your PC and resources, but it works great.

Give that a try, it came with my CD-RW but I'm not sure if you can find a cheap version of the Nero Burning Rom anymore.

A lot of airport codes are like that, having nothing to do with the city that the airport is in. That usually happens when the airport is named after a person instead of the city, like JFK in New York and CDG in Paris (CDG = Charles De Gaulle[sp?])
