    I have a JVC video camera which only downloads into .moi files. I have since converted the files into .mov files using ffmpegx.
    Now I have loaded the clips into iMovie but it can only seem to hold a maximum of 11 minutes of playtime for my DVD.
    How can I get at least 30 minutes to an hour of playtime onto these DVD's?

    I know that I should compress these video files but:
    A) How?
    B) Should I compress the clips when I convert from .moi to .mov? (How to do that)
    C) Can I compress the recently converted .mov files and then should I load them into iMovie?

    Export the movie from iMovie then use iDVD or Toast to author a DVD-Video.
