Hi, I have a MacBook and a Canon Vixia HG20. The videos are in AVCHD format and upload to iMovie 08 just fine.

My problem is...I want to get these files onto a standard DVD (still wondering why I got an HD camera in the first place!). Even a tiny 2 minute movie is way too much for a 4MB DVD.

Are there programs out there that can compress these files somehow? I have tons that I just need to get off of my computer and onto a DVD. Nothing fancy, just a matter of archiving. Most of my videos ended up on youtube anyway. Part of me is almost tempted to just load the small quicktime files onto a dvd but I know I'll regret it someday if I can't just play the dvd and watch it on tv.

Advice? Thanks!
