Take a look at the tutorials at They usually have the latest advice on software, etc. Do you want to do this because the avi files are filling up your hard disk? There are sections there for converting between different types of files and also for backing up to DVD. If you get a divx enabled DVD player you can even just burn .avi files to a DVD-R and just play them on your TV.

Intersting that you bring this up now. I've been researching this for about a month now. Do you want something free (more work) or do are you willing to pay some money (less work)? Also, these AVIs that you want to burn on to a DVD, do they have text at the bottom of the screen that might not be viewable on a TV?

Ulead DVD Moviefactory will convert most editable video file formats and burn them to DVD.

there are some programs youll need.. depending on what you need to do

if you just want to convert an avi or divx, into a vob/dvd, then use a newer program. Its free and extremely easy. good quality, and relatively fast.

"VSO DivxToDVD".

if you want to add subtitles, then use "Avi2DVD". it is also free, but it takes a long time, and youll find guides online showing you how to use it.

I've had luck with something called D.I.K.O., and then I use Nero to burn the DVD.

I don't know if it's the best or fastest, but it works for me.
