Two quick questions:

1) I have a lot of AVI video files that I would like to put into iTunes just so I can keep all my music and movies in the same place. Does anyone know of a good converter (hopefully free) that will allow me to change the video file type so iTunes will accept it?

2) Also, I would like to put multiple AVI video files on one dvd (such as, two or more episodes of a tv show on the same DVD). So far, I haven't found a way to do it. The program I use only allows me to add one file to burn and it won't allow me to add any more. I know that the files aren't that huge so one file shouldn't be taking up the entire DVD. Can someone point me in the right direction by giving me the instructions or a program I should use?

Thanks in advance for everyone's help.

To get more than one file on a DVD, you have to convert the files to DVD format (MPEG-2). This is because DVD players can't read AVI files, specifically DIVX or XVID codecs.

Thanks for the quick response.

I know how to convert and burn the movies to DVDs. I guess I really shouldn't have said "AVI" files. That's just the type I have now that they are on my computer.

It's just the fact that I can only fit one at a time on there. Maybe it is the size. I think I may be trying to cram too much on one disk.
 
Are you running a PC or a Mac? If it's the latter, I have a GREAT program that will handle all of your video converting needs. It's smart as hell, with tons of presets (especially Apple related products), so even the stupidest newbie would find it easy to use.

If you're on a PC though....eh, can't help you there. :o
 
I use Nero for making DVDs out of video files. It'll do pretty much anything, I have a small Scrubs compilation of my favorite episodes sitting somewhere in a jewel case.
