A video cd or DVD is a very specific set of files in specific spots
with specific names and types, framerates etc.  You can't just burn a
movie file to a disc and have it work in a normal DVD player.

You can try k3b or devede or search in Synaptic for other choices to
convert your data to the required formats.

Note that .avi doesn't say anything about what the video file is.  avi
is a 'container' kinda like a directory that can hold many different
kinds of video and audio file combinations.  .mov is another example.

All you need to know about Ubuntu 9.04 Jaunty -> gconftool -s --type
bool /apps/update-notifier/auto_launch false
