Congrats Ahamay,
I suggest you convert 1 copy to mpeg2 for dvd, burn 1 copy as is for backup/storage.
That way, you dont have to worry about quality lost during conversion.

to play on a normal DVD player it has to be in Mpeg2 format. Some newer players support DiVX or other formats. It also inst just a straight copy to the disc, there is a specific file structure that needs to be in place which is created by the software when using the Create DVD function, or omehting similar.

If you want to shrink the video for use on the computer, DIVX and apples h.264 codecs are currently the tops in quality. You can get a variety of freeware programs that will convert between any of the formats


heres a Divx encoder.

look on the site for any of your audio and video software need
