Well I'm outta my depth here and instead of joining another forum I thought I'd post here and would appreciate any advice on what to use. I have some .avi's and want to convert to dvd. I've read a lot, learnt a little but basically I've honed it down with the help of afterdawndotcom by using freeware tools with the Avi2DVD gui OR I've also come across while googling WinAVI. But I would also need some filters. For these I've found free-codecsdotcom (is this a good site?) and I'm wondering what I need for audio and video or should I just go for a codec pack?..such as the xp-codec-pack. What do others use? Do you have a nice guide to share? Many, many thanks.
