    Help with burning movies
    Hello all,
    I looked thru the previous post but may have missed a similar question. I'm attempting to burn a movie to allow me to play it on my home dvd player. I have some avi and mp4 movies on my mac. My question is, what format should I convert these to in order to burn them on dvd-r disc? I tried using BURN but it doesn't recognize avi, mp4 or quicktime files.

    Specs:
    17" MacBook Pro, 2.5 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Processor, 2 GB 667 MHz DDR2 SDRAM, not unibody
    If you have iLife (comes on every Intel Mac) you can use iDVD.

    As mentioned, for what you want to do, iDVD is your answer. Apple has some video tutorials.

    It is recommended you use the "Save as Disc Image..." instead of "Burn DVD...". That way you can test the result before burning to a DVD. Those AVI files may give you issues.

    When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.
