    What is the format of the movie? Where is it going to be used (on DVD player or copied to another computer etc)? You could encode it with HandBrake to make it smaller. Or you could buy a dual-layer DVD which can hold around 9GB IIRC

    Why don't you go for 8.5GB Double Layer DVD, save you time, and the quality of the movie you're trying to burn.

    If you are using iDVD, click on Project Info in the Menu bar and change the quality.
