    Hello everyone
    Im trying to burn some movies to DVD so they can be played in a DVD player with no menus or anything, just watch the movie. The files are .m4v I have tried using iDVD but it wants to create a DVD project every time and is not the most efficient. I have also tried Burn, but that keeps crashing
    Please help
    John

    I use toast titanium. It is very easy to use and fast.

    I just did some burning with some .m2v and its associated .ac3 files in dvd studio pro and that was very easy but it is one of those project programs.

    I would go with toast.


    To burn with Burn you need it to be a disk image.

    iDVD allows for self starting movies. This Apple discussion mentions it in the first response.

    iDVD has help too. I don't doubt it mentions it too.

    P.S. I didn't read the whole response.

    Creating a DVD that Begins Playing Movie Upon Insertion

    In version 7 of iDVD, you can accomplish this by selecting "OneStep DVD from Movie" from the File pull down menu. It supports .mkv movies.

    did the DVD end up playing on your dvd player? or will it only play on the computer?

    DVD specification require MPEG 2 to play on most if not all DVD Players.
    That is why you see all those Applications doing a conversion of .m4v to MPEG 2.
    If you try playing .m4v (MPEG 4) in a DVD Player it will fail.

    I just played a .m4v on my 2 year old sony dvd player and no issues here with m4v...the only thing i did notice was the frame rate was a little choppy.
