DVD video burning


I'm trying to burn avi files to a dvd, but when I open k3b, It pops this message up:

Code:
Be aware that you need to provide the complete Video DVD filestructure. K3b does not support video transcoding and preparation of video object files yet. That means you need to already have the VTS_X_YY.VOB and VTS_X_YY.IFO files.
I don't really understand what they mean by this, and I don't really what video transcoding is. Can someone explain to me how I can burn the avi files to a video dvd?

Thanks for any help.

I can tell you that means it cannot put it to the right format that you can play it on the dvd player on big tv. I am in the hunt for this as well so I will let you know if I find something out. And I hope vise versa.

Okay, I'll look for anything also. Maybe there is another program that can do it?

Is it possible for me to burn a divx file straight to the dvd? I think I read somewhere that it can be done.

The videos have to be 720x480 mpeg2 with uncompressed wave sound. Check out dvdauthor and transcode on freshmeat. The GUI frontends are gtranscode and qdvdauthor.
