What format should be using to play movies on DVD players? I have a movie on my hard drive in AVI format. I convert to 740*480 or what ever the standard is and I usually end up with a 20-30 gig file. The few times I've been able to get a file under 4.7 gb I use DivX player to burn them.

What am I doing wrong?

Convert to MPEG 2 DVD (NTSC). If the resulting file is more than 4.7 gb in size, you may need to use the Split function to break the movie into shorter segments.

To create a video DVD, you must use DVD authoring software.

DVD Author Plus is free.

Be sure to select a "Video DVD" and not a "Data DVD".
