Myfile.avi is 693MB long.

For this and future cases I would like to know how can I save it to make a dvd or movie-cd.

This time, I want to save it in a 700MB (80 min) CD-R in a Ubuntu Hardy system with Nautilus, Brasero, Serpentine, KAudioCreator, K3b, KMid, MPlayer, fmpeg, Totem and many other media applications installed.

1. How can I get media info about the file? (apart from the info in the Audio/Video Tag on the file properties window which cannot be copied)
2. What info is relevant to the ways I can save the file?
3. In what ways and how can I save the file in the CD? What types of CD I can create besides a data file with the file in it?
