video_ts file.. kinda a long process, but heres how i did it.
TMPGEnc to convert the AVI file (and add the sound) into a usable MPG. you have to convert it to mpg first before making the dvd video.
in the wizard. just
select "NTSC 16:9" then
"CBR MPEG-1 Layer II Audio (MP2)" in the drop down box
select the video file, (the audio file will auto populate, change that to the audio mp3 file if it doesnt have the audio yet else leave it alone)
under the Aspect ratio select "4:3 525 line (NTSC, 704x480)"
click next again
click next one more time
then click ok.
your file should now be a high quality mpg

click, "create new project"
click "add file" and select the mpg you just made
click "OK" in that window
accross the top, click "Create Menu"
select "No Menu" in the drop down box on the left
accross the top, click "Outut"
check off the box "Create DVD folder"
click begin output
whole process will take 15 mins (depending on PC speed).. and it will make the needed VIDEO_TS files (VOB files)
