    Keep in mind that the recommendation above to use Burn may not work if the size of the Video_TS folder is greater than the storage capacity of the blank DVD you are using. If you are using single layer disks that limitation is about 4.7Gb, and if you are using double layer disks the limitation is about 8.5Gb.

    If you want to use single layer disks with a Video_TS folder greater than 4.7Gb it will require pre-burn compression- something Toast and DVD2OneX (mentioned above) both do quite well. Personally I find Toast easier to use to compress and burn Video_TS folders by far, but different strokes and all! ;)
