I use Easy CD&DVD Creator to burn DVDs. Recently, I wanted to make a DVD of a legally downloaded movie that I got in .avi format, to play on any standard DVD player. When I found that the .avi format wouldn't work, I got a couple of file conversion programs, but can't seem to get DVDs that will play.

Is there freeware or shareware software that will allow me to burn .avi or DivX files to a DVD that will then play in the standard players?

Also, if I don't go that route, what must I convert the .avi or DivX files to in order to be able to play on a standard player?

I tried flick. It converted the avi to .vob files, along with the accompanying ifo and bup files. But when I tried to play them in my dvd player, I got the message that it can't play this disc.

How did you burn those files to dvd? You should have ended up with two folders, a VIDEO_TS folder and an AUDIO_TS folder. Those two folders need to be burnt to dvd using the UDF file system.

I opened the VIDEO_TS folder and then burned all those files to the dvd. I didn't do the AUDIO_TS folder. Should I not have opened the VIDEO_TS folder, and just burn the folder to disk?

Yes, burn the folders not just the files. Burn both the VIDEO_TS and the AUDIO_TS folders to the disk. Note the AUDIO_TS folder will most likely be empty it is there for compatability.

That's not entirely correct. Using the UDF file system would denote some sort of packet writing, DLA type of DATA burn. It won't work.

DVD-Video media use UDF version 1.02. These discs contain a so-called UDF Bridge format, whereby both an ISO 9660 (Level 1) and a UDF 1.02 filesystem are present on the same disc,

To the OP. DVD Flick comes with ImgBurn (the best DVD writer) included. Open it and set it to "Build' mode and add your VIDEO_TS folder. You could have set it automatically burn after the conversion.
