Guidance requested for multimedia conversion

Hi all,

Being much more a system programmer / database person
than a multi media type I am requesting a 'recipe' from
a video media expert.

I need to convert an 8 minute .avi file into a basic dvd.
No menus or anything, just a dumb as possible 'load it, press play'
disk. As long as I can do that, and also get the dvd player to 
do loop play, its fine.

I have a dvd burner, have used it via command line and k3b to
burn data Cds and data DVDs.

I am quite happy to load a list of ports to do the conversion,
layout and burning for the video DVD... I just need a list of 
ports to load, and the sequence of command lines to execute.

FreeBSD 5.4 Release,  KDE 3.5.4.
Ports tree within 1 week of current, normally use portmanager
for port installs, but direct make is ok too.
