Desktop Video/iTunes DVD


I have an MPEG-4 video on my iTunes. Is this copyable to a blank DVD?
Also, is there a way to create excerpts and just copy the excerpts?

Hi David,

This is a very typical question.  Basically if you want to create a video DVD that is playable on your DVD player you would first need to author the video.  If on a Mac and you happen to have iDVD then that will do it. Otherwise you can use software from many vendors but I typically like to use Wondershare for both Mac or Windows.  In a nutshell this will allow you to take you video and do whatever you want to with it including authoring a DVD and cropping/cutting/splicing video.  Hope that helps.
