    I want to make a DVD with iDVD but my .mp4 movie is too large. The notice says that "Your project exceeds the maximum content duration. To burn your DVD, change the encoder setting in the Project Info window." so i changed to encoder setting from "Best performance" to "High quality" but then this screen comes up.

    Notice how it does not encode and im left with a gray shade?
    I tried to burn it, but it says "There was an error during the encoding process"

    Any suggestions? Thanks! :confused:

    Strange, as the window you show us, says that the video is 98 minutes long and the resulting disk capacity after the transcoding process (from .mp4 using an MPEG-4 codec to an MPEG-2 encoded format) is 3.12GB.

    Have you tried going via MPEG Streamclip and transcoding the .mp4 to a QuickTime (.mov - CMD+E) using the Apple Intermediate Codec for video (Compressor) and Uncompressed for audio (Sound) and then using the resultin .mov file in iDVD?

    Analyse the source .mp4 with VideoSpec (I prefer that, though it hasn't been updated since 11/2009), MediaInfo Mac (10/2010) or MediaInfo (10/2010, there is a Mac OS X version to download, VideoSpec and MediaInfo Mac are using the same library as MediaInfo) and attach the report to your next post.

    It seems that movie file has some corrupt things inside (late, tired, thus no proper words for now). I just tried it myself with the same file you have.
    Why not try an SD version, as you make an SD version anyway?

    Use the same way you acquired the HD version you have. Getting into anymore detail will violate the forum rules.
    Maybe it would be easier to connect the Mac to a TV?
