    So, I have three video files, .avi format, each about one and a half hours long, all totaling 2.1 GB. Is there any way to compress these so that I might burn them onto a DVD for use on a regular DVD player? I tried using Toast Titanium, but it would barely let me put one file on a single disc, much less three. Thanks for any help!

    if your dvd player can play divx/mpeg4, then encode them in that. if not then the compression would probably be really high to get 4 1/2 hours of mpeg2 on one 4.6GB dvd, although you could get a dual layer burner and it'll probably fit.
