    Hi,

    I was wondering if anyone knows of an easy to use AVI to DVD Converter for MAC.

    I have a couple of AVI files that I want to burn to a DVD (to play on a DVD Player).

    Freeware would be great but Im also willing to pay for a good one :)

    Thanks...

    this should do it and its free :) I know Toast 8 rocks and will do what your looking for as well.
    but Toast 8 costs around $70.

    I think what you need is DVD Creator for Mac - The Mac DVD burner can convert popular video formats such as MPEG, DivX, WMV, XviD, DV, VOB, AVI to DVD and burn DVD movie to be played on portable or home DVD players.

    You could also use iDVD, it comes with every Mac preinstalled.

    I prefer DVD Studio Pro, but that's not free.

    It's really easier to use iDVD - it'll take a lot of different formats. If you have an exotic format that it doesn't take, consider buying QuickTime Pro or VisualHub to convert it (VisualHub is easier, QuickTime Pro has more quick-editing features)

    Squared 5 is free, Quick time pro is not.

    If you get a pro application, you upgrade to Quicktime Pro for free :D

    When I installed Final Cut Studio, QTP was unlocked for me ;)

    That is quite true. Final cut pro = big moneys, more than a simple avi to dvd converter. Although I do have to say that Final cut is a pretty sweet app.

    iMovie and iDVD annoy me :D

    Final Cut Pro and DVD Studio Pro give me more freedom to do movies and dvds the way I wanna do them ;)
