iDVD MP4: Burn Movies in MP4 on iDVD

Brian Fisher updated on 2022-05-05 10:34:09

iDVD does not fully support MP4 format video files. When you want to burn MP4 in iDVD, you might get MP4 corrupted for the reasons that MP4 format and its codec are not supported by iDVD. MP4 files are container files that may include video data that was encoded in a format that iDVD does not recognize. Because of this shortcoming, many users of iDVD are unable to create DVDs from the MP4 files they downloaded from the Internet or created with their cameras. However, that is not the end of burning MP4 in iDVD. Here is the best solution for you.

Step 4

Once you have arranged all of your MP4 files you want to burn to DVD and have edited them to your liking, all that’s left to do is burn the DVD. When you create the DVD disc, DVD Creator allows you to choose from a range of option including burning a physical disk, creating a disk image (for creating multiple duplicate disks) and many more. You can also select options at this time that will determine the quality of the output file and the speed of the burn process.

And that is pretty much the end of it. Depending on the size of the MP4 video files you are burning to DVD, it will take a few seconds to several minutes to create your disk.
