Re: M4V

Handbrake is another that'll do it [as long as the m4v files don't have DRM]

Re: M4V

Handbrake'll go the other way (MPEG-2 -> MPEG-4) but not what the OP wants.

Re: M4V

PQ Video suite (includes PQ DVD) will do it for you...

also, the protected flavour is usually .M4P, I think - but, of course there are alwasy exceptions.

Re: M4V

I wouldn't bother authoring a DVD, especially if it is high definition resolution. mpeg4 compresses smaller and with higher quality than mpeg2. So in order to author a DVD, you will have to bloat the size and re-encode it, which will lose quite a bit of quality. You could watch it on your PC or stream it to an HDTV as is, or author a blu ray.

Re: M4V

will a bluray player play m4v if it isn't h.264?

Re: M4V

hmmm, not sure. DVDs are so 1998 though. Why needlessly bloat the size and lose quality?
