    Hey Mac newb here so not sure if this will work, but what worked for me in my broadcasting class a few years ago was this.

    See the DVD pic that pops up when you load the disc. Well if you drag the file(music video) to the DVD icon it should burn it on their.

    I dont know if you need software to do that or if Mac's do that out of the box. Sorry, its just how I used to do it...

    Try iDVD...very easy and intuitive!

    Put all your music videos into your Movies folder (path = /Users/your_username/Movies ) so that you can access them from iDVD. Launch iDVD, create a new project, start dragging and dropping the music videos onto the screen until you've run out of space or videos.

    Does any one know if the way I explained works, or how did I do that on the G5 I was using 2/1.5 years ago?

    I'm pretty sure that won't do want the OP wanted (ie play in a DVD player). It would work fine if you're playing them through a computer, but if you want the files to play on a DVD player you'd have to use iDVD or Toast to get it to work.

    Yup, no problem for player on a computer. Just stick in a blank disc and drag and drop the files to it and eject the disc (ie burn).
