    DIVX2DVD, i like this program but i dont think it can do multiple DIVX files on one DVD,.... is this possible? anyone know a good tool for that? i heard DVD SANTA is good... i also heard that XVID is better than DIVX, should start encoding to XVID? and is there a good XVID2DVD program that does multiple files to DVD? thanks

    fyi... i have a ton of boxin fights encoded to DIVX with avg bitrate af about 850kb with sound at avg 160kb, ... the quality is pretty good, i am content but i want better and i only have about 200gbs to play with, so i am running out,.... i gotta start backing up to DVD so i can watch on dvd players aswell, so i gotta find a good encoder too,

    and...

    i forgot to mention that i am usually converting from MPG, AVI (uncompressed i guess) and some XVID aswell, the sizes for MPG/AVI are usually 600mb, i get them down to about 350-400mbs after conversion using Dr Divx 1.6 w/ 850kb/s video and 192kb/s sound ... with XVID i get about 250mbs after conversion....

    If you are interested with coming away from those all in one tools, I suggest you give TMPEGEnc a try. DVD is simply authored MPEG. I don't use all in one tools because it doesn't give me very much flexiblity with my movies. I suggest heading over to www.videohelp.com and look at all the ways and tools to do what you want to do ... but do it better.
