    Needs to be encoded in MPEG-2 format to play on DVD players.

    Just some expansion on this:

    Yes, moves on DVDs are encoded in MPEG-2 for the video and AC-3 for the audio. So your avi file needs to be encoded as such.

    Also, .avi is not a format. avi is simply a container for video and audio streams. For example I could have an avi file that contains an Xvid video stream and MP3 audio.

    As to actually getting your movie files on a DVD, you will need a program that is able to encode to Mpeg-2. I do not know of any that are free.
