    I'm trying to burn a series of shows onto DVD. I'm using iDVD, but can only get 2 shows on one DVD. The shows are 45 min long each and in mp4 format. Is there a way to get more shows onto the DVD??

    IIRC iDVD has a limit of 2hrs. You might have better luck w/toast though.

    try the different encoding settings in idvd to get more hours... best performance/quality options should do the trick to fitting more hours on a dvd. toast would be a better solution though. you can squeeze more hours of video using their auto compression. you can even create a dual layer dvd project in toast and compress that to burn to a standard single layer dvd. toast is your best bet.

    You can also use an app like VisualHub to convert the files to a dvd and pick your own bitrate.
