Difficult to advise without knowing a little more. Can you supply full details of the properties of the video clips you are importing. If you can't find that detail then download a file analyser like this one:
5star Media Analyst - Analysis of video clips and audio files
It's free.
From what you say it sounds like you have a small size clip which is being stretched to fit a full screen. That's what gives the pixelation that you are getting. If the original clips are small in size like from YouTube then that would cause the problem. Be mindful of the fact that whatever you do you cannot improve the quality or size of the original clips. That's why knowing the properties is so importatant. I'm not familiar with Vuze but will take a look at it during the day.

If your downloading movies from torrents, the quality of encode itslef is going to be the largest factor.

The problem is, when you convert a file (AVI,MKV,MP4 whatever)to a DVD format, you must recode the it so it has a proper structure.
Theres several apps that can do this, (ConvertXDVD being the most simple but also not the greatest quality)

When you go through the re-code process (regardless how good the application is) there is always a quality loss. If the original source is borderline in the first place, theres simply no way of getting around artifacting.

Many also crop the black borders which is, IMHO, the worst possible thing you can do as you gain absolutley nothing other than messing up native resolutions and causing more work for future recodes.

Burning the disc slower will not help sadly.

Also, as suggestted, if its a low resolution: recoding and resizing at higher bit rates may help slightly. Though not much if the original source is of poor quality.

If i'm not mistaken can't you just burn the movies to a DVD by using the built in windows program called Windows DVD Maker . Ive used it myself to burn movies to a DVD and the DVD worked on all the DVD players I tried it on.

You can indeed but I think the problem we have here is the quality of the finished DVD. As you say burning the DVD is no problem, I haveven't tried Windows DVD Maker but I guess it produces the two standard folders VIDEO_TS and AUDIO_TS with VOB and IFO files in the VIDEO_TS the same as any burning software that shows the option "Create DVD"

Hi wishmaster. I completely agree with you. And at one point I would disagree mildly that not only the convert x to dvd but also any other dvd structuring program ( including sony architect ) cannot improve the quality of the movie from bad to good. It may do it a slightly better.

what ye all say makes perfect sense now that i think about it guys, yes i do download from torrents and youtube, so it does makes sense that the finish product seems to be stretched to fit the widescreen tv. i'll keep trying tho it wont beat me yet lol

Good on ye! Don't tear your hair out though else you'll look like me and that will never do!
Are you able to put one of your downloaded video files onto a server so that I may download it and have a go at producing a decent DVD on my Video editing software. Just to se if it is possible. I would enjoy the challenge.
