  1. Hi,

    I have several AVI videos with duration of almost 8 Hours. I need to burn them to Single Layer DVD (4.5GB). So, can you please suggest me a DVD Burning Software which gives minimum quality loss output Video.

    I guess you want a real DVD-Video(that should work on most dvd players)? See https://www.videohelp.com/dvd#tech

    8 hours on a single layer dvdr in dvd-video mode wont look good. But you can use free software like avstodvd and load your avis. Or try Convertxtodvd.

    But I would recommend put it on at least 2 DVDs.

    ImgBurn for burning, but I think you want an encoder program instead.
    BTW, 8hrs of video on a DVD will be really low quality. And a single layer DVD holds about 4.37GB.

    But you might try 1/2 D1 MPEG encoding to conserve a bit of quality. (352 x 480 pixels MPEG2)
    Maybe AVS2DVD for freeware or ConvertXtoDVD for pay if you want simple.

    (Or what Baldrick said.

    Even at half-D1, which avstodvd does support I do not think you can get 8 hours on a single disk. I think it would max out at about 3-4 hours.

    To get 8 hours you would have to consider vcd quality - a dvd recorder often supports a '10 hour' mode and this is essentially vcd. Not sure if avstodvd supports that.

    Half-D1 is an acceptable viewing experience but vcd on a modern tv would, I guess, look, as has been stated, not very good at all.

    So to put all these videos on to one disk is really making problems for yourself. Even with two disks you are still really restricted to half-D1

    DVDFlick works best for me and have tested on three brands. Its free and opensource. Has quality control, but is a little slow (I think?)
