    Is there a way to compress them to fit them into a single dvd. Its annoying to cut them into parts and into several dvds. Is there a program or wad that does that?
    Thanks alot:D

    iDVD will do it, but you need to tweak the quality settings in Preferences.

    i'd recommend downloading handbrake and converting it to a 4.5 gb file. that way you have some space to work with, and it still looks decent

    You're still going to have to convert it again to burn to DVD, so may as well skip that middle step.
