Yes. However, make sure the resolution of the AVI file is at least 640 pixel in height or it will look bad on TV.

Get ff mpegX, it can handle your task.
It will take time to convert the AVI file to MPEG-2 and make sure you have plenty of RAM and a fast CPU.

It ends up two files... one for the video and one for the audio.
Then use Toast 6 (in my case) to burn them.

Or, you buy a DVD player that can play DivX/XviD/MPEG-4 files.

Kenneth,
What toast setting do you use? DVD-ROM under data or something under video
Thank you
