Background: I have found several guides about converting AVI to DVD, DivX to DVD, XviD to DVD. Most of them used a DVD converter to create DVD's folders (VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS) and related files (including .VOB and .IFO), and then used a burning software to burn DVD which can playback with home DVD players. In fact, You can complete the conversion with only one software - Cucusoft AVI/MPEG to DVD/VCD/SVCD converter. That saves you so much time you need to use an encoding application, then an authoring program to create the DVD files and then another program to burn, as the great program takes care all these at once!
2. First of all, select the conversion you want to do (1). We want to convert Divx/XviD(AVI file) to DVD, so select 'To DVD'.
Now you have to select between two tabs (2). 'Merge' will join all the video files you add (such as AVI, MPEG, DivX, XviD, WMV) to one DVD file (including VIDEO_TS, AUDIO_TS, etc.). 'Batch' will encode each video file to a different DVD (so that you burn it in more DVDs). As you understand if the videos are small select 'Merge', if it's big movies you want to put into different DVDs select 'Batch'.
After this click 'Add' (3) and open the video files you want to convert.
Now it's time for the output settings. First of all select the location and the name of the output file. Then select 'Keep Aspect Ratio' (4) unless you want your actors to look like aliens!
After that select the output format between PAL and NTSC depending on your DVD player. The PAL and NTSC selections will set the right output size (resolution).
Also if you want your PC to shut down after the conversion (usefull as the conversion may take much time) select this option (4).
Tips: If you like, you can set 'Frame rate', 'Output Quality', 'Aspect Ratio', etc. by clicking the 'More Advanced Settings' (5).
3. Click "Convert and Burn" button (6) to start converting movies to DVD's files. The AVI to DVD converter will automatically create a "DVD_Disk1" folder in the output location, and the DVD's files VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS will be placed there.
4. "CD/DVD Burning engine" will be launched automatically after video conversion done. Please choose the suitable DVD burner drive. (supports DVD-R, DVD-RW, DVD+R, DVD+RW)
Tips: If you'd like to burn DVD with another DVD burning software such as Nero, please click "Cancel" and burn the files in "DVD_Disk1" folder to DVD later.
5. Place a DVD-/+R/RW disc into your DVD drive. If it is a rewritable disc, the program will erase the disc before burning DVD disc. When burning DVD is done, the DVD disc will be ejected automatically.
