    Question Newbie needs help with software
    Hi all....

    New to this site and require some help please. I have passed over from the dark side and i am now a mac user :-) my problem is with converting AVI to DVD format on my macbook, i always used WINAVI but this is not an option with the mac. I used it to convert my blu-ray Xvid (avi) to dvd so i could watch on my home player and with WINAVI it kept the 5.1 surround and fixed the ratio output.

    Is there such a tool on the mac? i used some program called dvdpro i think it was called, it worked but the ratio and was terrible and it was only stereo sound and had no options to change settings

    Please help!

    Welcome to the Mac Forums!

    The open source application "Handbrake" can do the conversion. This LINK explains how to do it. Download handbrake from here.
