I d/l one hour programs from torrents. Say I missed Las Vegas last Friday, I d/l the .avi file and watch it on my laptop connected to my TV via s-video or burn the avi to CD and watch it on my Philips DVD. It is Divx compliant and plays avi files jut fine. I also have some movies that are out on DVD and someone, (not me), has converted them to Divx. That's great I can burn a DVD movie onto a CD. Sometimes I have to overburn 10 to 15 megs, but it works fine. I want to be the one who converted the DVD to avi format. What shareware/freeware programs are able to convert the contents of my TS_VIDEO folder, from 4.3 gigs to avi 700 MB. Hell, I'll buy thre program, if it's good, doesn't have to be freeware. Thanks, muyflaco.
