Use TMPGenc. Guide here: http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/convert_avi_to_dvd.cfm
At the bottom right, press that to go onto the next step, jsut fast forward to the TMPGenc part I would say.

Pretty easy and you can choose the quality of video and audio etc.
Just ignore some parts of it like subtitles, unless you want it. After you created your file, use TMPGecn DVD Author, author the DVD with chapters, emnus and whatever, and then its easy.

do a search for divxtoDVD on edonkey, this program converts 2 hours or so of footage from DIVX/XVID/MPG straight to DVD VOB formats in about 3 hours on my 1.4 athlon.

output quality is as good as the source files.

Converting DivX files to DVD will not give as good a picture buying a DivX Player.

So you connect your Technics to the DVD Player, via Co-Axial or Optical?

and from the DVD to my PJ by component

I got my player today and i have to say im well chuffed with it

thanks MJ for recommending a divx/xvid DVD player to me

I cant believe the quality of it tbh if i walked in on someone watching a film i would think its a DVD, the only fault i have found is some films i have tested go out of sync if u fast forward but i wont be FF'ing anyway

Thank Ashmufc for ur help as well i will be needing it again in this thread pretty soon more than likely

Full films

I have another little problem but it may turn into a big problem

1 film freezes and goes out of sync part way into it. The problem is that it works ok on the PC so how can i tell beforehand if the file is going to be ok without burning each file to DVD to test it.

I dont wanna be burning 6 films to DVD only to find one of em is fooked meaning my compilation is fooked as well

you can always use Nero Vision Express, it's not very flexible but it gets the job done. Only thing I don't like is that fact that you can't put subs in it. :\

daz, check for firmware updates for your divx player and if you're lucky you might even find some modded firmwares which tend to be better.

mine used to go out of sync when i fast-forwarded through part of a movie, but a firware upgrade sorted it, as well as allowing unlimited characters on the menu screen and a few other goodies that weren't there originally.

also, your previous query about the menu - mine opens up a file browser automatically when i insert a dvd so i can see the name of all the files on there - maybe there is an option in your setup...

i still need help with the sync problems

it only goes out of sync because the film skips if that helps at all

is there anyway i can test the files on my PC beforehand???

I have this problem too. I'm not too sure if the video skips during play or are the audio and video simply not in sync.

i would suggest people stay away from the Umax players if they dont have firmware upgrade availble for them

i have found out by trial and error that the Umax/Yamada/Chili players dont like VBR (Variable bit rate) when it comes to sound, they play CBR (Constant bit rate) Ok but very little Divx/Xvids are CBR and its a long process to convert it

so stay away :)

Ive Just Bought a new DVD player

http://www.pixmania.co.uk/uk/uk/78288/art/h-b/dvd-divx-player-dx-3255.html

i have to say its 100x better than the Umax 1 and so far touch wood its played everything i have thrown at it

the only downside is u have to check the file for packed bitstream before u burn it but that takes 30 seconds so aint a problem

i would highly reccomend this player :)
Do you know how to convert packed bitstream to unpacked, only takes 2 or so minutes. If you don't tell me.
