    No, it won't, but you didn't specify that it had to play on your DVD player. If it has to play on your DVD player, then the only way that I know if is to buy a Dual Layer DVD, or high definition disk format.

    Get the "Toast" application, if allows you to compress a video file to fit more video on a standard disc. I took a dual-layer DVD and fit it on a standard DVD with Toast.

    From their website:

    I assume this just transcodes it to a lower bit-rate then? How did the quality look, compared to the original DVD-9?

    What applications are you using? I think (think) DVD Studio Pro can shrink your video to fit on the DVD, at the sacrifice of quality, if you give it an original format and not MPEG 2.

    They way I would do it is use Compressor to compress your MPEG2 and audio file, using a low enough bitrate that you can fit the final thing into 4.7GB. You will be sacrificing quality, but if you play with the GOP structure, it won't be entirely horrible.

    Try DVD2oneX2. I just spent the day backing up some of my DVD collection. It will take your large Video_TS folder and reduce it to fit on a standard DVD-R disc. You can output it in the software as an .IMG and then just burn away. So simple.

    I didn't notice a huge change in quality but then again I didn't watch any of the discs I made in detail.
