Hi
i am having dvd writer in the laptop. I want to write movies in the DVD of 4.2GB capacity. i do have movies of each 700-800 MB.
I want to write these movies in a single disk and want to play in the ordinary DVD player which is connected to the TV. I dont know how to do this. I know just to write the image file in DVD or CD and to run in computer. how i can write most 700 MB movies in DVD and to play in the normal DVD player. Please help me.

This much I know; you will need to copy the 4+Gb file as a divx file or a file small enough to fit onto a CD before doing anything. There should be software around to do this. There may be an application that does this as part of the process of burning the cd. I'll have a dig around.

If you have some movies that you have made yourself of have permission to use and want to try your hand at doing something with them with Ubuntu, you're in luck and have some options: open up "Add/Remove applications" on the "Applications" menu, and search for "DVD"

Could you please explain little more. I want to do this for my friend also.

Try tovid/todisc (http://tovid.wikia.com/wiki/Screenshots). Its command-line based and can author DVDs with nice menus and effects. I prefer to use it over others, as it can easily be scripted to run in batch mode.

Have a look here: https://help.ubuntu.com/8.04/musicvideophotos/C/video.html
You'll have to scroll down the page a bit to get to the section on recording DVDs.
