I'm an UBER-beginner on this whole video thing....so I just had a few questions i was hoping someone could answer

What format do video files need to be in to be burned onto a dvd and played in a standard DVD player? and should i be using the HandBrake program for that conversion?

My end goal is to take a movie file taken in iMovie (which i believe goes directly to m4v files right?) and to burn this file onto a dvd that will play in any dvd player

I'm starting out small! haha

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, as I'm somewhat lost...

Once you have editted your movie. Then save it as a quicktime mov file. Then import it to iDVD to create and burn the final DVD product.
