So you have a lot of home video footage that you’ve been compiling and sharing over the web but you want to actually burn that data onto a disc. You will quickly find out that it is not quite as simple as say, burning some of your music to a CD. Creating a DVD from video content (typically .mpg, .mov, or .wmv files) is called DVD authoring and it involves compressing data (remember a DVD holds 4.8GB – an hour of uncompressed .mov file is about 101GB) and converting it into a format that complies with the DVD specifications (as set by the DVD Forum group) so it will actually play on a DVD player. Additionally, DVD authoring involves adding title pages, chapters, menus, music, and even closed captioning to optimize the functionality of the DVD.
