Okay, here's the deal. I have about a 700Mb .avi file that will play under VLC Player, but I want to put it on a DVD.

I usually just drag it into Toast and it will encode the file and fit it properly on the DVD, but not the program just hangs and I have to force quit it.

Then I thought I could drag the clip into iMovie and make into an mpeg-4 video so it wouldn't needed to be encoded, but then iMovie never responded and I had to force quit it also! Help!

a lot of support here - http://www.apple.com/support/imovie/

make sure you have the latest free update 6.0.something

then post back if you've made any progress or fixed it.

Thanks for the link buddy. I currently found a free program that will convert it all for me, it's called "Burn" and it's doing it at blazing speeds! It's at about 36% and has been running for about 25 minutes, which I consider to be pretty good for a 700Mb file.
