the m2v has, afaik, a linear size compared to length of the video. you can't tell how big it should be comapred to an avi. as the avi, assuming it's actually divx, could be compressed to all sorts of qualities... a full length film would generally be about 4gb on the dvd in it's finished state, for bout a 2 hour flick.
