    Divx is already compressed to WAY below DVD quality. You cannot get it back.

    I mean the best quality relatively possible form avi-mpeg-flv, not the highest one. I did not mention Bluray quality.

    FLV is most likely the lowest quality on your list....especially if the video is ripped from sites like YouTube.
    Divx/Xvid can be made to look acceptable on a normal sized television.
    Mpeg is DVD - DVD is mpeg (mpeg2)
    Mpeg(mpeg4) is Divx/Xvid.

    DVDFlick is the easiest (and free) tool to use.

    From Divx/Xvid the best you can hope for is barely VHS quality especially if you are talking about movies @ approx. 700mb file size. They have already been squashed from about 5 or 6 gigabytes in size to 700MB...(as I said before....)the quality has already been severely compromised compared to the original.
    DVDFlick will turn it into a DVD that is playable on your player....that is the best you can hope for.
    If you use a quality burning program and quality DVD blanks...they will last as long as any other DVD you burn.

    Yes it does. But only if your sources are of high quality, which is not the case here.

    Edit: Ah, hech54 was a little earlier

    Hand drawing with crayons give better quality than DVD Santa.

    I like AVStoDVD, which uses the high quality HCEnc encoder, and is free. DVD Flick would be second on my list, followed by the payware ConvertXtoDVD. DVD Santa I would lump with WinAVI at the bottom of the encoding toilet bowl.

    However unless you are going to do a lot of avisynth filtering, you will not get anything better than your source, and possibly a little lower in quality. All your source videos are compressed, most heavily by the sounds of it. Lots of damage has been done already, and re-encoding will not make them better.

    I tried DVDFlick, Windows Movie maker and DVD Santa, and I see that Windows Movie maker is much much better. DVDFlick seems to be the worst one. i will tray AVStoDVD
