I can burn a data DVD on MacOS Catalina but getting a movie DVD burned is escaping me. Is this possible without additional software?

A VIDEO_TS folder is what I am looking to burn... VLC plays this perfectly including displaying the DVD menu. How can I burn this?

  • How about using iMovie, the built in tool of macOS. – Udhy Dec 31 '19 at 11:19
  • I'd be pleased to do so, but could not find the option. File -> Share does not include a "burn" option. Where would I find this? – Marcus Dec 31 '19 at 11:22
  • @Udhy thanks but the instructions for iMovie on that page are very outdated... iDVD does not seem to exist on Catalina. – Marcus Dec 31 '19 at 11:44

No. Sadly, since Apple discontinued iDVD, there is no built-in way to burn a movie DVD.

Burn is an excellent free utility for creating audio, video and file storage on optical media.

  • Thank you. Unfortunately Burn has been quitting out on my unexpectedly. Not sure the issue. – Marcus Dec 31 '19 at 13:03

    Latest version is 2.7.8. Make sure you're up-to-date. There are other apps if it doesn't work for you. – benwiggy Dec 31 '19 at 13:36
