Hi.

I was intending to burn some TV shows into DVDs using iDVD.
It seems that after adding 4x20 minutes episode, it says that the disc is full the size of the disc is now 5 Gigs plus.

Is there any way to reduce the quality of the video ever so slightly so that I can put more episodes of the show in the disc?

Thanks.

What format are the shows in? You could always try changing to a more compressed format like .avi or something.

Use not abuse the rep system!

It's already at .avi

On the DVD it says that it can store 120mins or 4.7 Gigabytes.
But on iDVD it only allows for a runtime of 90 mins. Is there a reason why it is so?
