my buddy was telling me about this program he has for pc where it just burns movies directly from avi or MPEG without having to wait for encoding. Does this kind of app exist for macs too?

You can burn anything with most burning apps without encoding if you just want to burn the files. But if you want it to be a standard DVD, there's no magic way to not have to encode the files. (except for certain DVD players that can play back certain non-standard file types).

Like I said, there's no magic that his windows app has that's not available on the Mac. It must be one of the options CanadaRam laid out.
