Now that there are no further developments on DIKO (GREEEEEAT SOFTWARE), I am starting to look other ways.
I have tried a lot: AVStoDVD, TheFilmMachine, AVI2ISO and DVD Flick, but none of them works as I would like.
What I need is a stable program with "one click" function. As automated as possible.
It needs to automatic fit up to 6 houers on one DVD. I encode 3 movies to one disc.
Of course I need the subtitles.
The menu I'll do in DVD-lab afterwards.
I think TheFilmMachine looked great, but I can only get it to fit 2 movies on a standard 4,7 GB DVD.
What is the best solution. I don't have to be freeware...
I have made quite a few dvds with 3 movies (xvid) on one DVD and the result has been fair with DIKO.

file size = bitrate * running time
If you want six hours on a DVD you need to use a bitrate around 1500 kbps. At that low a bitrate you'll usually need to drop the resolution to half D1 or quarter D1.
Get a DVD player that can play Divx/Xvid files and you can play most of your files without conversion. Or a media player like the WDTV Live.
I had a similar question last week, and have to say that AVStoDVD once tweaked handled the job quite well using the HEnC 2 pass setting. THe results were as I expected, and actually looked pretty good on my TV.
I suggest giving this a try.
