hi all,
i've been using handbrake to back-up some of my dvds onto my hard drive. it works great, yadda yadda. most 2 hour movies end up at about 500 mb (in an mp4 format). i have the 12" powerbook, so wathing movies on my tv through my computer is no prob. quality/sound is actually pretty decent. i do have one question though: is it possible to take that 500mb mp4 video file and somehow burn it onto a dvd disc that could be played on any regular dvd player? (not a computer)
QUOTE Thanks

yea just use toast, i believe it can handle mp4 files. if not i would def suggest you start ripping with mactheripper to create a video_ts folder set and then use toast to compress and burn...then delete the stuff from your had drive and it will play on 98% of dvd players

Yes, toast has a very easy-to-use DVD authoring method built in. You just drag the file, name a few thing, choose some others...and burn. I burn all my....'backups' like that.

Use MacTheRipper instead of Handbrake and you'll have the entire full quality DVD with everything including extras, chapter selection, etc. Then select the folder created by MacTheRipper with the DVD's title and burn it with Popcorn or Toast 7 (Has to be one of the two because they compress it so it fits on a DVD-R or DVD+R).

I have Mac the Ripper and I went ahead and ripped a DVD to my harddrive, then what do I do? I have toast but what do I burn it as?

Data?
iso?
DVD?

You use Video -> DVD Video from VIDEO_TS.

Then just drag the folder MTR created.
