I have some files wrapped up in an AVI container. They are videos encoded with the Xvid codec.

Quicktime 7 plays them with no sound, like Realplayer will play them, but luckily the great VLC player plays them just fine.

My question is: I'm running 10.4.1. I have a superdrive in my Mac Mini. I want to burn the files to DVD so I can watch them on my standalone DVD player attached to my television.

iDVD hangs after a while when I import, and Toast Titanium 6 also hangs when I import the files.

How can I burn these successfully to a DVD to watch on my TV?

Thanks in advance!

Steve

You gotta love VLC!

You might try converting the files with http://homepage.mac.com/major4/ and try burning them in another format.

Thanks man I'll give it a go! I think I'll convert them overnight - this is really where I need a dual G5 2.7! Wink

It certainly did work great - thanks! One problem I've noticed when installing the extra files for it in Tiger is that it doesn't create the folders, so I needed to do it manually.

Apparently they are fixing that in the next version.

Anyway, thanks again! Smile
