My primary computer is a mac. I didn't realize it [didn't have a?] DVD burner until tonight. I need to burn a DVD.
I took the m4v file to my windows tower, and I can't get it to burn as a DVD people can watch in a television.
Is there an open source solution to this issue that anyone knows of?
This is an old post, but, maybe someone else can use this info.
Here is another solution, in addition to all the above.
Create your MV4, FLV, or MPEG 4 or whatever video in iMovie / iDVD on your Mac.
(I use Mpeg Streamclip to convert to DV. The quality is much better IMHO)
Then in iDVD, drag your video in, create your menu or whatever, then under "File" > "save to disc image" Click the burn icon. And wait . . . And wait . . . and wait. (incidently, iDVD will create a DVD with PCM, so that's cool)
When iDVD is done, Find and double click the the disc image to show the VIDEO_TS folder. (You don't need the AUDIO_TS folder)
Drag the VIDEO_TS folder to a thumb drive or external hard drive.
Now move to your windows machine. Connect thumb/external drive to Windows USB.
Copy the VIDEO_TS folder to Windows. Or burn right from the thumb/external drive, your choice.
Burn the VIDEO_TS folder with Imgburn, or whatever you like.
My superdrive died on my Mac, so this is how I do it now. Works good.
Or, just buy an external DVD burner to plug in to the Mac.
