Hi chaps

I'm trying to get films / clips that I've downloaded from various sources (such as uTorrent) onto DVD. Can anyone recommend a simple and cheap (ideally free) software?

Any ideas gratefully received.

Cheers

Chris

Can we clarify the question: do you mean you want your digital videos watchable on a standard DVD player?

Yup! :woo:

Right then, DVD Flick it is. And if there's anything else you want to do, I can pretty much guarantee you'll find a program for it on DVD Pimper... ;)

Back to this...

I've recently changed machines and downloaded DVDFlick again. However, it does not work - a Vista problem? It gets all the weay through the encoding proces then stops working - even when I jut select create ISO it doesn't work.

Any recommendations for creating and burning ISOs from digital video stored on my hard drive??

Cheers

Chris

Chris - there's no point (in my opinion) converting DivX (avi, MP4, xvid or divx) to a DVD to play on a DVD player. You're going from mega-compressed lossy file to a high-quality format. You are far better off (money wise and time wise) getting a DivX-compatible DVD player to use with your TV. Most Philips ones will do, and when my last 30 Asda one gave up the ghost after 3 years recently I go a Philips one from Currys/Dixons for about 45.
