You might also want to download a HR or 720p version. The end result would be better quality video and 5.1 AC3 audio. Easier still would be to buy an MPEG-4/avi compatible standalone. That way you can burn 12 or so episodes per disc, no need to convert.

Lost is a commercial video. Where did you source it as an AVI?

No I meant a MPEG-4/avi compatible player. Should point out though that most won't play anything with a higher resolution than 720x576. So 1280x720 is definatly out.
