I have a lot of large mpeg files on an external hard drive. I would like to put them into ivideo, do some editing, and then put them on a dvd that can play on regular tvs. Please let me know how to do this, what formats I should use, what software I need, etc. Easiest cheapest way possible please

Thank You

You'll have to convert them. Something like MPEG StreamClip may be the solution. Convert them to QuickTime. There are plenty of thread here regarding that type of convertion.

You can then use iMovie to edit the footage. Depending on the version of iMovie, you could share directly to iDVD to make a DVD playable on through a regular DVD player. Older players may not work.

The iDVD software is easy enough to use.

Apple has some tutorials for their iLife apps accessible via their iLife page.
