Format for DVD players


I have a video in .avi format, but what format do I need to convert to, to play on my DVD recorder, please can anyone help?


Toast is the program for converting and burning DVDs on a Mac. I don't know what kind of formats the program takes as input, but if .avi isn't supported, you can use MPEG streamclip to convert your .avi to a format that Toast can handle - but do make sure to read the requirements section for MPEG streamclip very carefully and make absolutely sure you've got all of the needed software.
