Here is my problem.
I have a video from school --a meeting--that I have to burn in a DVD.
I was able to put the video from the camera to my PC, but is 13.5 Gigs --1 hour long-- an is a .avi file. Last night I play with Windows Movie Maker, and now I have a MSWMM file too.

Question one: Can I burn a DVD with Movie Maker and this DVD will be able to fit, and play in any DVD player?

Question two: If is not possible to burn with Movie Maker, what program should I need to get or buy in order to burn the movie?

Question Three: What is the best --easier--program that you use?

Thanks a lot

I am not sure but I dont think that moviemaker converts avi files to MPEG---and thats the form you want to burn to DVD too. What I would do is purchase something like Vegas Movie Studio DVD--for 99 bucks---Its a pretty complete NLE and also has your basic DVD burning codecs etc built in. If you really get into it, you can always upgrade to their pro product, Vegas Video and DVD Architect. I have had lots of my stuff shone on TV doing it that way.

thanks for your help
One more question please: In my video folder I got a file .MSWMM that is 452KB. If I double click on it, Media player will start with the movie. how is this possible? The original file is like 13+ Gigs --the .avi--
can I burn this file to a DVD? And if I burn it, can it play?
thanks

Thats the file already compressed to Windows Media Format.....its the compression (and loss of quite a bit of quality that does that--)
