Trying to convert AVI files in Opensuse12.1 x64, kde4.7.2, ffmpeg 0.9.1-1.1

ffplay info:
Input #0, avi, from 'FILE0018.AVI':

    Stream #0:0: Video: h264 (Main) (H264 / 0x34363248), yuv420p, 1280x720 [SAR 1:1 DAR 16:9], 29.97 fps, 29.97 tbr, 29.97 tbn, 59.94 tbc
    Stream #0:1: Audio: adpcm_ima_wav ([17][0][0][0] / 0x0011), 48000 Hz, 2 channels, s16, 384 kb/s

so I can create a DVD.
They are off a Kogan video camera (read: pretty cheap, generic from SE Asia). Have tried various things to convert/publish and always seem to get a DVD that starts playing OK, but after a minute or 2 starts faltering, won't FF or jump to next chapter etc.
Couple of command lines I have tried:
ffmpeg -i <input filename> -target pal-dvd -sameq <output filename>
ffmpeg -i <input filename> -target pal-dvd <output filename>
etc (not very inventive... Know next-to-nothing about ffmpeg, but willing to learn!)
Have then tried to author/burn the DVD with kdenlive/devede.
Any help appreciated!

Thanks, John.
