    Therefore to clarify:
    • You may not discuss breaking DVD or BluRay encryption, copying, or "ripping" commercial, copy-protected DVDs.
    • This includes DVDs or BluRays you own. Even if you own the DVD or BluRay, it is still technically illegal under the DMCA to break the encryption. While some may argue otherwise, until the law is rewritten or the US Supreme Court strikes it down, we will adhere to the current intent of the law.

iDVD encoding issue?

I am trying to burn a movie in iDVD but when I throw it in my player it will chop up and sometimes not even read the disk. It is a movie edited in Final Cut Pro, I have been doing it for a while now and all of a sudden it just stopped working. Odd thing is if I burn the movie in Toast it works in the DVD players fine! Any ideas?
