    Avi to mpeg
    Can anyone help me? I want to burn some films onto dvd-rw but at the moment they are avi files. I have been told i need to first convert them to mpeg but all the programmes that i have found through google either cost lots or seem really complicated.

    I've got a macbook pro so have iDVD to burn once i have got it to mpeg...

    Please.... anyone....

    Specs:
    Mid-2012 MBP (16GB, 1TB HD), Monoprice 24-inch second monitor, iPhone 5s 32GB, iPad Air 2 64GB
    Another option: buy an inexpensive DVD player that supports DivX/XviD. This way, you don't have to convert anything, you just burn the AVI files (which are almost certainly in DivX/XviD format) to a data disc, stick it in the player, choose which entry you want and enjoy.

    Specs:
    Late 2013 rMBP, i7, 750m gpu, OSX versions 10.9.3, 10.10
    Another option is to grab Burn and see if it will handle your AVIs... In the DVD video section of Burn, it's designed to just take video files and it will convert and make a dvd. I've had some success with it, but not with all file containers/codecs/resolutions.
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Debian as a server; Apple TV (1080p version)
