    If the original file is widescreen, you'd setup an anamorphic 16:9 widescreen, or transcode the material so it is permanently letter boxed. Anamorphic would be a better choice as if you do playback on a widescreen TV, it should scale appropriately.

    In terms of exactly how to do that in iDVD, I'm not sure (I really don't use it, I use different products for authoring), but at least with the knowledge of anamorphic, you should be able to do a search thru the iDVD manual to find how to set it up for that.

    1. Open iDVD
    2. Click "Create New Project"
    3. Save it.
    4. Drag the video clip into iDVD.
    5. If you don't want a menu, click View -> Show Map. Then, arrange the video clip before the menu, click it, click Advanced -> Loop.
    6. Burn.
