    The easy and free (as in freedom and free as in beer) way to encode an .avi movie to DVD format and burn it to a DVD is to simply install devede from the Ubuntu repos:
    http://packages.ubuntu.com/lucid/devede
    http://www.rastersoft.com/programas/devede.html
    Just open a terminal and run:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install devede
    Or use synaptic, or the Software Center, which ever you like, and you will be good to go.
    The only other thing you will need is the popcorn!
    Write back if you need more help.
