    hi all, i've got some video files i want to watch on my DVD player. i need an App that'll convert my video files into a .iso file so i can then burn it on my DVD burner and the DVD burner is only on Windows so i need to take the .iso file with me to the Windows machine.

    thanks for any help!

    How would you watch video on your DVD player? Does it have a screen?

    Just checking...so why not spend $90 and get an AppleTV to stream your video? That would be more cost-effective and save time compared to trying to burn the video to disc.

    I personally use Roxio toast for my conversion / burning needs. It allows you to create DVD files and either directly burn them or just save them to be burned. If it will allow you to go across platform with the files, however, I'm not sure.

    The easiest answer is, as stated, to get an apple TV or, if you'd rather not stream your content, a USB optical drive for your mac and burn directly from OS X using Toast, Burn, or any similar application.

    I am not sure about it but maybe the free Burn can help you.

    Is DVD2OneX still being updated? I used that a few years ago to convert a bunch of .avis and burn them to DVD.

    This. Most of these apps give you the option to finalise for DVD players anyway, so choose the one that best suits you and you're good to go.
