How to Convert AVI to DVD for Free With No Watermark

By Randall Shatto

Microsoft developed AVI as a video and sound file format. AVI (Audio Video Interleave) can play on almost any media player. Converting AVI to DVD is important to play the videos or movies on a home entertainment system. Once you convert the AVI file to DVD, you can burn it onto a disc. Typically, demo applications require a watermark on your movie along with other limitations. Free Videos to DVD and Quick Media Converter HD are free applications that can convert AVI files to DVD within a few minutes.

Free Videos to DVD

Step 1

Select the “Start Menu” and “Program Files.” Click on the last program in the list, “Videos to DVD.” Open the program and a “Step 1” window appears.

Step 2

Insert the name of the DVD, such as “Home Videos.” Change the “DVD Format” to “NTSC” and “16:9.” Click “Next” to move on to “Step 2” of the application.

Step 3

Press the green arrow to add the “AVI” file. Browse your drive and highlight. Click “Open” and the “AVI” file name will display in the center of the program. Press the “Next” button.

Step 4

Choose the “DVD with Menu” or “DVD without Menu” buttons. If you choose a menu, fill out the options. These include title color and font, chapter titles, as well as chapter settings. Click “Next” when you finish or if you decide on without menu.

Wait until the conversion completes, roughly five minutes. Open the DVD or burn to disc from the default convert folder.

Quick Media Converter HD

Step 1

Open the Quick Media Converter HD from your “Program Files” list. With this version, you can burn your movies or videos in DVD or HD quality.

Step 2

Click on the “Easy Mode” button. Press the “DVD” button in the “Conversion Format” menu. Choose the “NTSC DVD Format Good Quality 16:9” option in the drop down menu.

Step 3

Select the “+” button on the left side. Find the “AVI” file on your drive. Highlight and press “Open.” The file name shows in the middle of the screen.

Click the “Open Door” icon to choose a save directory. Press the “Circle Arrows” icon to convert AVI to DVD. Let the process finish, about two minutes depending on the speed of the PC and the converting options.
