Yup. Make a vcd. Most DVD players can play them. I use Nero. In Nero, when you start it up and it asks what type of disc tot create, choose "Other CD Formats" Then choose VideoCD. Drag your file into the Layout window on the left. It will check the file. When it is finished, click Burn! It may take a while though for it to encode before it burns. That is how I do it anyways, but I am certainly no great expert.

Good Luck!

Most likely not. If you want better quality then use TMPGEnc instead of Nero for encoding or better yet encode to SVCD with CCE. DVD if you have a DVD burner would offer around the same quality, although when ever you re-encode something (exluding lossless formats) you lose quality.

TMPGEnc is good when making vcds,svcds, etc. but its recommended to use a program like virtualdub to rip the audio track from the .avi file to a .wav file and then set the .wav as the audio source when using TMPGEnc. This will help reduce the chance of having audio sync issues that you could get when taking the audio and video directly from the .avi file.

Not tried it personally as I don't encode AVI's to (S)VCD, but frameserving via AVISynth should have the same effect, but without the need to create a wav file.
