    Has anyone encoded QuickTime movies onto DVD?

    It looks like you can import QuickTime movies directly into Apple's iDVD, then burn them onto DVD.

    Anyone actually tried this?

    Yes you can do this. I have no Mac. I don't go through this trouble because I know that later we get them with better quality and sound on official DVDs. Only once I made a trailer on DVD-R from a QT file and it was the Forbidden Love!

    Sam, I'm curious as to how you did that on a PC, I assume...

    I've tried with TMPHEnc, but couldn't get it to work...'

    thx, Artur

    Artur... make sure you have the most recent version... I know that it's only been the last several releases that have the DVD templates (and thus DVD support?)
    Also, make sure you have the TMPGEnc Quicktime plugin, otherwise the program won't read the quicktime files.
    I do Quick Time > MPG conversions with TMPGEnc for my trailer VCDs all the time.

    http://www.ulead.com/ has a product called DVD Movie Factory. The capture utility that comes with it will convert QT and AVI into MPG. They have a 15 day trial on their web site. This is the Best dvd authoring program I've used so far and I own DVDit and MyDVD.
