    If you want to be able to play those files on a NORMAL DVD player, then your going to need a commercial package (such as Roxio Easy Media Creator, or Nero 7) that can transcode your video files into a ISO dvd image

    You may want to check your installed programs and/or software discs that came with your computer. It is rare that any computer comes with a writable drive without software--albeit trial software in some cases. Even if that is the case, if you like it or get used to using it, just purchase a license online.

    If you are an unlucky consumer who has indeed purchased a computer that comes with a writable media drive but no software, I suggest you state more about your computer (platform, OS, general specs, drive manufacturer, etc), and I'm sure people will let you know their opinions.

    Depends on your needs... XP Media Center Edition does come with minimal DVD burning software (for burning files), but you still need the commercial packages to burn ISO DVD video formats...

    Something simple to use but can be modifyed so that the ISO will be recoded acording to the bitrate of the file rathere then just wasting space thats not needed.

    Now this will be a poor solution, but if you install PEBuilder, it comes with mkisofs.exe and cdrecord.exe. They are command-line image building and burning software. Tricky at first, but free.
    Read your DVD-player manual, it should be able to play some AVI files. To perform the conversion to the AVI container from, say, Matroska, use free VirtualDub. I know that this solution is not optimal, but at least it doesn't get blown up in size like if you convert a 3 MB Youtube video to a 100 MB entry on your DVD.
