Windows 7: Creating a dvd with a avi file in nero 9?

27 Oct 2009   #11

Windows 7 32 bit

There's a couple of issues here. If you try to just add an .avi file to a DVD using Nero it will probably try to encode it to DVD Video as in having a VIDEO_TS folder. The other issue is, if your stand-alone can play .avi or not. If not, the easiest to use is probably DVD Flick if yes, then just use Imgburn. The third of the 2 issues is, you might need Shark's Windows 7 codec pack. Makes life easier generally.

Windows 7

I have updated my codecs with sharks, that was the first thing i tryed before posting.

As for nero vision, it is design to take, mov, avi mpegs and so on and trans code them into a dvd format like the one you mentioned. Windows DVD maker is also suppose to due the same thing.

There was never any problem doing this until i upgraded to Windows 7, i am not saying its windows fault. There is something wrong and i would like to track it down.

On a second note i tryed using ConvertXtoDVD and it worked fine, but the qualty stinks.

Thaks for helping and posting,

For quality I don't think you can do much better than HC encoder 2 pass using Best Profile. Both AVStoDVD and FAVC can do this. I bought Nero Ultra 6 when I first started burning CDs and wanted to get a package that did everything. If you go to CD/DVD burning forums I think you'll see most have in common the opinion that you can get freeware that does much better conversion that Nero. DVD Flick as I mentioned has good quality. Try using AVStoDVD but use the Lock Button on the video encoding settings page to force it to use HC 2 pass no matter what the bit rate range. I think you'll see quite good output.

FAVC is faster if you have like a quad core. It can launch a copy of HC for each core. Plus you can just copy and rename the exe file from the latest October HC beta to replace the HC encoder that came with AVStoDVD or FAVC. It kicks ass.

For more info on AVStoDVD go to its thread on the DOOM9 forum. The author is there and is very good about answering questions.
