Clarification Request
Most folk just place the files on the media

As your average PS3, XBox and many BD players can play the files with no conversion, why not just burn the files onto the media and play?

Also, you could skip all this and get an Apple TV and let it play them from your Apple.

So this media can hold those files just fine. If you want a Video DVD then you can only put so much on each blank and most folk use whatever Video editor they are comfortable with.

As an average movie is 120 minutes long, there is no possible way to fit more than one movie per standard Video DVD onto one disc. But I'm sure you knew that and that's why putting the files you have onto the DVD is the only solution today to fulfill your request of more than 1 movie per DVD.

Convert X seems to take .AVI and such files and possibly make Video DVDs. On an Apple there are dozens of apps that we call Video Editors that you can add compatibly encoded videos and create a Video DVD.

Look up iMovie for example.

But the fact you wanted more than one movie on a DVD but didn't share it was to be a Video DVD has me take your question at face value and guess you wanted more than the usual 120 minutes. To that end the simple cure is to take the source video files and burn them directly to the recordable DVD media.

Since such can now be played on many devices and again you didn't detail that the only playback was a Magnavox R232 I offered a solution that works for most of us.
