I am new to the world of bit torrents, and was wondering if anyone here knew a good (free?) file conversion program to convert files to DVD format?

I'm unsure if this thread is going to remain open, but just in case it does stay open...

I think we need a bit more information. Are you talking about playing IFO and VOB files (that were ripped from a DVD), or about taking a video format, say .avi or .mpg and burning it onto a DVD?

avi files to be burned to DVD, specifically.

Browsing through the information in this previous thread might help. Also try looking through some tutorials.

I have Nero which transcodes avi's to DVD but it's not free unless you buy certain DVD/CD burners and the results degrade quality but are watchable.

Thanks for the ideas.
JALman, I have Nero, but have yet to figure out how it converts files. Others have told me the same thing. I bought the computer in 2004, so Nero is about 2 years old. Is this a feature added to more recent additions, do you think?

Nero Vision is the program they make that converts AVIs to burnable DVDs.

Like they're recent mp3 encoder though, I've had a lot of problems with audio sync on the finished product, so I recommend "burning to folder" first to test the finished product before recording it to disk in case it gets off sync.

Some of the things I've had to do to keep the sync from getting off is closing all other programs, rebooting, turning off EVERY program not needed (virus scanners too) and even physically disconnecting internet connections to the computer. Sometimes even those aren't enough and I will have to figure out where the sync goes off and edit the original avi to put an opposite sync error into it so that the Nero "mistake" fixes my purposely made error, resulting in an (eventually) watchable DVD).

I burned a data disc tonight of avi files and it actually worked on my new dvd recorder! I guess my problem is solved, thanks for all of the suggestions.

Not really any info on what exactly happened or what dangers resulted from it. People may want to change their passwords, just in case. I did. I agree with the sentiment here: This is unacceptable from one of the most-visited Web sites in the world.
