What cheap or free programs do any of you use that will convert to a format that can be burned to DVD? A dvd that will play in a stand alone dvd player. I am trying Any Video Converter now, but don't like the options for the DVD menu.
Thanks for any reply.

"Realplayer" used to have a free version. "DivX" is a good player.

Here is a freeware: Super Video Converter by eRightSoft

It looks like there is an option to convert to DVD (.VOB) format. Most DVD players these days can play the SVCD format which is the size of a CD.

Do you have an rather newer TV? Most come with a VGA ( PC video) plug so you can hook up your TV to your PC and watch movies and video files that way. Or, if you have a home network and an XBox, you can share videos in a Homegroup, and pick them up on the XBox, playing them on the TV.

Be aware of pixelation when going from a small compressed format such as a flash file (.flv) and "up-scaling" to a DVD (.vob) format. The result may not be watchable on a TV without annoying pixelation.
