Re: best way to fit 4656gigs on dvd? author ??

No, you can't overburn. I never liked the idea of overburning, even on CDRs, as it is somewhat unstable and relies on anyone you trade with to also have that capability.

There are two things I think would help you get your disc under the limit, and both require a re-encoding from the original source:

1. Trim a minute or so off of the disc...if there is some useless stuff at the beginning or end. If the entire thing is good video, this is not an option.

2. Starting from the uncompressed video, change the video bitrate down a few notches until the result will be small enough to fit.

Also, you could go with DVD-9 and max video bitrate or spread the video out over two discs. I think that's the best option as it maximizes the quality of both the audio and the video.
Through the clouds,
Throught the lies,
We'll never see,
What's never been,
At the ending of life and the coming of death,
Pass not through its gates but into the dark.
