I got some home brew videos from my webcam, and I got a couple movies on the drive I'd like to burn to DVD. The thing is, I don't know what's a good product for that, being a recent Mac convert and formally a heavy Windows user.

I keep finding things about iDVD when I search but from further reading iDVD is no longer available. So doing a quick search on google you get your standard "This app will do it all" type sites, usually really crappy software so I don't want to waste 20, 50, 100+ dollars on an app that I'll use once in a blue moon or on an app that's actually worthless.

Please stick to one topic for one questions, additional questions may easily be missed and will definitively making answering more difficult. – patrix Jun 17 '12 at 16:32
Most people will answer this question as if you were triying to burn data files ( that happen to be video files ) to a DVD-ROM. I'm sure you want to make a DVD-player-playable-movie DVD, in which case some convertion has to be done and even adding a menu. Am I wrong ? – Tulains Córdova Aug 14 '13 at 20:38

If you're going to burn to DVD, you need a replacement for iDVD, and you don't want to spend beau coup cash, use Burn. Burn is free, and works swimmingly.

Great tool - just found it via this answer. It won't recode to fit a target size if your films are larger than the disc size, but other than that it does everything that you need for making simple DVD from MP4 videos. – stuffe Feb 14 '14 at 21:37
