    So I was put in charge of putting my brothers wedding video on dvd. Whats the best option for getting an AVI file to dvd format without losing much in terms of quality?

    if u want the easy solution u can use ConvertXtoDVD by VSO-software it does a pretty good job and u can do 2passes encoding and add more audio tracks, subs or even make a custom menu if u want that.

    Yep, that is the easiest, and not really any quality loss. Any quality loss will mostly be caused by the video only being 480p, which is unavoidable regardless of what software you use.

    What Puma said, I've used the program for year's and it does everything you generally need plus that little bit more.

    I have used ConvertX as well.
    I like how customizable the menus are.

    Windows has done a fine job for me so far.. Quality hasn't seemed to degrade.. My two cents..

    I found it to have spyware in the program but that was a year ago or so.
    Anyways..
    Im not sure if Handbreak does Dvd, but I found it to be about the best for not loosing any quality during a conversion...

    AnyDvd works well but your going to loose some quality..If you know what settings to use im sure it will work well for ya but ya never know.
