As digital technology becomes more affordable, user-created videos are becoming more common. While digital recording devices, such as phones, cameras and web cams, create videos that are easy to view on computers, creating a watchable DVD can be more difficult. Mac users have access to iDVD, a program included as part of the OS X operating system. iDVD allows users to convert single or multiple video files in to DVD.
Open iDVD by double-clicking on the program icon in the "Applications" folder.
Convert a single video file to DVD. Go to the "File" menu and highlight "One Step DVD from Movie." Use the browsing window to navigate to the video file. Highlight it and click "Import." Insert a blank DVD in the optical drive. The DVD will begin burning automatically and eject when complete.
Convert multiple video files to DVD. Highlight "Magic iDVD" in the "File" menu. Select a theme for the DVD menu. Drag and drop movie files into the space indicated in the window. Add images and audio files to the menu if desired. Press "Preview" to view the DVD with your options. Press "Burn" and insert a blank DVD in the optical drive. The DVD will burn automatically and eject from the drive when complete.
