HowTo: Convert AVI to DVD

I download TV shows off BitTorrent and sometimes I want to share them with friends.

First you need to convert them to quicktime. So you'll need a quicktime codec like 3ivx.

Then use Divx Doctor to convert it to a .mov. This takes a minute or so. When your done preview it in Quicktime.

Next open Toast and select Video and drag and drop the files. If you are putting multiple files select Create DVD Menu in the Advanced Options. It takes a few hours but when done you've got a great quality DVD.

The only downside is it's limited to about an hour of video so if you have a large file you might have to split it with Split me.
