    How do you make a DVD?

    I've actually never done this before. What I have here are some videos of a TV program, they are currently in XVID format. I have converted them to DIVX. I have NTI DVD burning software, and it has an option to burn a DVD VIDEO_TS setup.

    But don't I need to convert the files to .VOB format in order to play on my DVD drive on my TV?

    How do I accomplish this, thanks.

    Burn it to the Video_TS and toss it in the DVD player.

    Nero Express (the WYSIWYG front-end for Nero) works like a charm for this.

    NeroVision express is a great, easy to learn software to do this Brent.

    just follow the on screen menu and it will walk you right through it.

    also think about getting a dvd player that will play divx/xvid, you don't have the fancy menus and chapters, but another option.

    Thanks, I'll look that up, cause my NTI burning software doesn't seem to be doing it right, after I burn it when I go to put the DVD in my DVD player on my TV all I get is the Video_TS directory and nothing is inside.

    I suppose some of the frontends do the same as the manual tools - seperate the audio from the XviD, splitting video into m2v and audio to AC3, multiplexing them into a single mpeg, then coverting the files into VOBs inside the DVD FileSystem and burning to disk. You pretty much have to do this under linux, using the command line tools... there are GUI frontends but they're pretty early/beta and not amazing. I'm sure you could find some of the tools for windows command line if you're having trouble with the frontends.

    Check your DVD player, it might already play that format. Mine will play just about anything under the sun.
