I apologize if this is an oft-repeated question. I am new here. JUst got the Phish montage vid which plays well (a little out of sync) on my Mac's DVD Player. My question is, how do I burn this onto a DVD? Using iDVD? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks for your patience.

iDVD should work fine i believe [i've never used it though]...chech iDVD's help files for more info re: burning DVDs

my preference for burning both DVDs and CDs on OSX is Toast [Roxio], but you have to purchase it [$79.99 from Roxio right now]...well worth it in my opinion, no glitches yet

hope that helps...cheers

Assuming you have Toast 6.0.7 or later you can go Video tab->(click the little bluish circle that makes the options drawer on the left come out)DVD Video from VIDEO_TS and drag the VIDEO_TS folder from your download into the main Toast window. If you have an earlier release of Toast or would like to use up spare space on the disc to archive other data you need to go Data tab (click the little blue circle etc.) DVD-ROM (UDF), New Disc and then drag your VIDEO_TS folder in. For best compatibility with older DVD players, hit New folder and create an empty one named AUDIO_TS. Any unused space can be filled with any data folders or files but make sure they are not in the VIDEO or AUDIO_TS folders by mistake.

Yeah, that does help. I have Toast already but -believe it or not- never even thought of it for that. Thanks.

iDVD will NOT work
if the dvd is playing on DVD Player then its already authored and iDVD will not do anything for you
you will need Toast or DVD Studio Pro

there is a way i THINK to do it with disc utility too
check out U2Lynns web page on it

I spoke too soon. My Toast is 5.1.3
It says it doesn't recognize a DVD-ram burner.

I then tried iDVD. It's says it doesn't recognize the .BUP, .IFO etc... files.
