    Yep iDVD, it lets you create chapters and menus with music etc and then burn it to the DVD. It works really well. Its part of iLife it should be on the Mac especially if you're buying it new.

    No, you have to convert them first using MPEG Streamclip to a .mov file using the Apple Intermediate Codec (AIC).

    You could use Roxio Toast Titanium.

    I believe the free (and wonderful) Burn can do this, also. Burn handles most video formats and does the conversion....

    Actually, while i love both of these, I'm pretty sure Burn and VisualHub won't create chapters automatically, and I don't know about Titanium.

    MPEGStreamclip will convert, but not sure about the chapters parts there either.

    Really it's only two steps....not that bad is it?
