    I have a bunch of xvid incoded .avi files (podcasts, not what u think) and I want to burn to disc. I have about 21 of them.

    I notice when you buy Seasons of shows you get like 2 discs at the most.

    How do they put 15 to 25 episodes onto 1 or 2 discs? I don't understand.

    I can fit, using DVDFlick 4 episodes on 1 disc.

    Explain please.

    I find most shows get between 3 and 6 episodes on 1 disc. Which series are you thinking about?

    Also, Nero is quite an easy way to make fairly good looking menus.

    It is not a series, it is a podcast show, totally rad show. Same length and such. So I guess I am stuck with 4 per dvd. Where is Nero can I make the dvd menus, I never knew it could do that?

    Use the help feature in Nero man. It's not that hard to find it if you look.

    There is none, I can't find it, the help menu just has the thing where if you click on something it explains it.

    Go to Downloads then you will find Help Files for 7 and 8.

    Lower the bitrate of the video.

    If you're burning these DVDs to be watchable on a DVD player, then its converting the video to MPEG-2, which has insanely low quality for high bitrates thanks to bad compression. Thats why xvid rips of DVDs are 700mb when the DVD itself is 2.5GB or something.

    In the advanced options of DVDFlick, lower the bit rate. By default it's set to auto fit and you're usually ok dropping the bitrate automatically.
