Question
Is there a software(app) for Mac which you can write file mpg4 to  DVD with good quality without compression. Thanks

Answer
Nope, doesn't exist. Not for mac, not for windows.

MP4 utilizes a compression known as h.264.

DVDs, are MPEG - 2 files (a different compression scheme.

It's impossible to take an MP4 to DVD without additional compression, since they're in different formats.

Expertise

I can comfortably answer most basic/advanced questions regarding Macintosh hardware and software - nowadays only OSX. In fact, if it's prior to 10.3, there's a good chance I'll reject your question. Forget OS9 stuff - Igave up OS 9 ten years ago). Please do not ask me about OS9. My particular specialties are in Video editing/DVD authoring. I am a certified trainer in the "pro apps" (Final Cut, DVDSP, Soundtrack, Motion). I have been using Macs since 1985.
