so Unless you know about them lets keep them as it is ...we will consentrate on the Target Disk Size ....Now there are many ways to Set the Disk size...you can Individually select each movie and target it to a 650 MB or 1.4 GB Size..and add the files later on to Project..but for Simplicity sake ..lets just take the 4.7 GB Size ...Click 4.7 GB then OK

Good tutorial, but i wont sacrifice even a single point of quality loss whatever maybe the cost so i dont do such things.
The problem with this tut is that he uses all paid commercial software.
I want a tut which uses freeware.
I was recommended this software by a friend of mine.It is called ffmpeg2theora.It is like DOS based.It really compresses the video like anything.But it wont be played in DVD players as the format is .ogg .But wud be gud for making movie backups.
Keep up the good work bro.

Did anyone really try this out? and its work
cuz i did every step in the tutorial
and i can only burn 2 movies max
BTW why do we have to use DVD SanTa
to convert it to DVD its just wast of time
why not just leave as like AVI format and
use nero vision to burn it out
"The Future Is Open"
same here but there still are ways to atleast cram 2 movies without virtually any quallity loss...... DVD Shrink is one simple way..... what it does is make you sacrifice on the menues, multiple subtitles (u only need eng),trailers, multiple audio track (again u only need eng), audio codes(you can skip the DOLBY when you have DTS.....this reduced noticible space)..... and audio channels as well..... you can choose to downmix audio to 2.1 to save more space(if so u wish).........in all the video quality remains untouched and you still have 2 movies in one DVD.
I did this on my Saving Private Ryan DVD9 (8GB DVD). I used DVD Shrink to cram the movie to a conventional 4.7GB DVD5 without ANY loss in video quality.

I agree dats a gud tut but instead of usin da dvdsanta u can simply use nero vision. Its a damn powerful software but codecs need to be installed. I recommend u first install K-Lite Mega Codec Pack and then u can use Nero Vision to make all sorts of video discs.
