I just downloaded War Of the Servers (http://litfusefilms.com/movies/waroftheservers/), a machinima. I want to burn it so that I can watch it on a home DVD player. Does such an application exist? I checked add/remove programs, but nothing seems to suffice. They are in .wmv format if that matters but I have codecs installed so that shouldn't be a huge problem.

Thanks for the help.

Okay, i found qdvdauthor. But I can't figure out how to install it! its a tar.gz, a source code. I try to extract it but it won't let me. Anyone want to help me install it? I can't figure out how to do tar.gz's!

To burn DVDs for the purpose of watching them in a home DVD player, you could try Devede, Tovid etc. See part 3 of my howto (ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683).
