Is there any one program (or two at most) that would let me:
[*]Convert a Divx / Xvid file to a VCD (i.e. when 700Mb or lesser)
[*]Convert a Divx / Xvid file into a DVD (i.e. when greater than 700MB)
[*]Join two Divx / Xvid files (e.g. when a movie is in two parts)
[*]Burn a DVD (or make an iso) that would let me have 3 or 4 such above mentioned video files on the same disc, i.e. will let me make the "Root Menu" of the DVD from Jpegs
[/list]In essence I want to do two things:
[*]For video files I don't particularly care for or which are of a lower quality, burn them to a CD-RW or DVD-RW to view them once on a standalone DVD player.
[*]For video files I want to keep long term, burn many of them onto a single DVD-R to view on the TV or on the computer.
[/list]

dvdsanta is too basic, and too "1 click and you are done" for my liking... I tried it but it would convert each divx file into a 4.something GB vob(dvd) file, even though the original size was a fraction of that.... and moreover, it took 3 hours to do that!!

will try mediacoder once I am don with my exams (tomorrow :)).

Would Ulead DVD Movie Factory let me do what I want to dohttp://www.broadbandforum.in/index.php?act=findpost&pid=51741?

ok I am just totally lost in mediacoder... I tried to follow the guide on it's site to convert avi to mpeg2(vob) but firstly, the guide is not well written, and secondly, I get an error message and it doesn't transcode.prathapml, can you give a brief guide in case you have converted from avi to dvd before?
