    Thank you CPR! So considerate of you. A TCP/IP hug to you.

    For your question, what you are basicaly trying to do is called "DVD Authoring". This can be easy or tricky. DVDs are encoded in MPEG2 format, but it is usually only the worry of the authoring program. You only need to make sure the file you want to burn is in a format supported by the DVD Authoring software.

    So you want a program. Well, what I use is NeroVision Express as I got it with Nero 6 Ultra, but there are supposedly much better programs, and I'm too lazy to learn another one. With that program, I more or less have to have a video file of the container type (AVIs, OGMs, or MKVs) in the AVI format before I can do anything with it. So there's that little problem (file and possibly encoding conversion). Here is a large list of others (notice the pricing on the side and if its trialware or freeware)...

    http://www.videohelp.com/tools?tools...+or+List+tools

    I highly recomend this site for anything you need with this type of project (of course I'm still more than happy to help you as far as I can). They are very helpful if you join the forums, and have so many guides that you probably won't need to join the forums. For example, there is a nice flash guide here (http://www.vmesquita.com/dikoauthor/) that comes from a link on videohelp.com. That is for using Diko and DVDstyler (DVDstyler is a frontend). If I were to start learning one, I think that either DIKO and DVDstyler, or DVDauthor and DVDstyler would be what I would try.

    Again, it looks like from that DIKO flash, you have to have the video in AVI format. Considering that subbers have a har..... thing for MKV (and h.264, in which case we may have problems) containers you will probably have to convert it (and I do know why they do, AVI is outdated). This could take you anywhere from using one program to 10 programs to convert it. I have done this for a series and a few movies (just for fun mostly on the movies). I used VirtualDubMod and a few other programs to do it. There are alot of great guides for various programs and converting on Videohelp.com as well (Baldrick's guides are awsome). And I could probably help you with converting as well.

    I used this guide to start learning conversion... (great guide)

    Its a lot of work at first, but once you get good at it all, things go pretty smooth. Let me know if you have any other questions, or need any help with anything. I guess my bottom line recomendation for the authoring (to get out without paying anything) is to download DIKO (http://www.vmesquita.com/en/diko.htm) and give that a try. I never tried it, but it looks pretty easy (time consuming, but easy).

    There are your converters.

    As for making them play in your DVD player, that is what the DVD Authoring progam is for. It takes your .avi files and makes them into MPEG2 DVD format, making either a DVD or a DVD disk image. Use the authoring program, and your good to go.

    .... ya man. There were several in the list on the link I gave you in that first post of mine. The one I suggested at the end was free. Try that one. It was the last link in the post. It was called DIKO.

    hmmm, dvd authoring, i've done made one dvd, but i had to turn convert it so it could be burned as dvd video.......the conversion process took 17 hours for 4 300mb avis though. Is that normal? I mean yeah my laptop's a lil old.....pentium 3, 746mhz, 128mb ram, but i assume that one of those programs can burn to a dvd format without me having to convert the avis first?? and if so, which?

    Uhh... doesn't sound normal, but I have a faster computer than that, so I don't know. Never tried this stuff on my PIII box.

    For clarification, I just want to state that AVI, Ogg Media, and Matroska (AVI, OGM, and MKV respectivly) are NOT the formats of the sound and video. These are CONTAINER fromats (which is why you need spliters, like Halli media spliter), which means that you have several streams that are combined into one file. In AVI, usually you have video that is DivX or Xvid (probably some others) and MP3 audio. There are restrictions as to which types of files can go into the different containers. AVI is the oldest and worst. OGM has one or two restrictions, and MKV I think can handle almost anything.

    With that said, I had some OGM files that I converted to AVI using VirtualDubMod. What I did was follow that Baldrick guide that I linked before, and convert the audio with full process mode, and left the Xvid Video alone. It took 5 min or so to convert the audio from Vorbis to MP3. Then all I did was put the Xvid into an AVI and added the new MP3 file. With the video not being converted, it took no time at all.

    If you do convert the video though, that takes some time. On my computer, it took me about the same time as the movie to re-encode a movie that I was messing with into Xvid.
