    In front of computer...
    My objective is pretty simple

    I just want to make a DVD with multiple Movies in it

    But after using certain programs i find that one video (around 700mb) takes up 80% of DVD!
    What the heck

    Can someone help me here?
    Also this is just for my car, so the quality can be low as its gonna be playing on a portable DVD player

    Are you trying to burn it as a regular DVD movie? If you're trying to burn it that way, it's not measured by GB or MB, or any file size. It's measured in MINUTES. That would explain why your movie which is 700 MB fills up almost the entire 4ish GB dvd. I don't remember the minute capacity because it's absolutely ridiculous. I just burn file DVDs now and hope the cheapy XVid DVD player can still read them... Or I used to, since I have a hometheatre PC to do it now. But since you're using a portable DVD player, I wouldn't know if it supports file DVDs.

    Yeah, but not all DVD players can use data DVDs, only movie DVDs.

    Maybe you should give Adobe Encore a shot. It is an easy application that lets you create DVD menus so you just create a menu and create two link. One goes to one video, the other link goes to the second video.

    Win avi video converter 8 works well for what you need and is fast (about 20/30 mins to encode a dvd).


    Nero showtime and Convert X to dvd will also work for you but are slower at encoding than win avi. Encoding time allways comes down to how fast you cpu is.
