    I'm having problems with my movies getting cropped once they are burned onto a disk for dvd players. I included a video of my issue with hopes that it will explain it a lot easier.

    Very unsure why this is happening. I am a novice when it comes to this type of stuff.

    What is the resolution and format and codec used on the source footage?
    What settings did you use in iMovie and iDVD to import, edit and burn the footage to DVD?
    Be as precise as you can.
    And what iMovie, iDVD and Mac OS X version do you use?

    That was 720 x 405. It also happens with 960 x 540. The codec is H624. This happens on all my dvd players and even if i bring the movie file (.mp4) to a flash drive and watch it in my blue ray player.

    But can you share more information? Like how did you import the footage into iMovie with what exact settings?
    And what settings did you use in iDVD?

    Have you considered connecting your Mac to the TV directly?

    I used the magic dvd setting in idvd. Not sure how i imported it into imovie. Are there different ways? I do know the aspect ratio was 16:9 in the project properties. I hope that info helps. I'll try to give you any info you need.

    There's an Overscan setting somewhere in your workflow that needs to be changed. It may not be a result of the DVD burning.
