I'm not really *here* here, but I've been struggling with this stupid computer for two days and I just need someone to help me before I set my hair on fire.

Please help me burn video files from the computer to play on a standard DVD.

Take note - this is on a Mac. Any solutions for Windows won’t help me.

What I want to do:

Burn a video file to a DVD-R so that it is playable on a plain old standard DVD player.

What I have:

Three .mp4 files, around 600 MB each, and three .mkv files, around 1.7 GB each

A MACINTOSH COMPUTER (MacBook Pro with SuperDrive)

OS X Mavericks 10.9.1

Handbrake 0.9.9
FfmpegX 0.0.9y-L r2
MPEG Streamclip 1.9.3b8 beta
QuickTime Player 10.3
VLC 2.1.2
iMovie 10.0.1
iDVD 7.1.2
Burn 2.5.1
Toast Titanium 10.0

What I DON’T have:

money to buy any other software.

The problem:

While I have managed to burn two playable DVDs from one of the .mp4s (once with Burn and once with Toast), the video, which is widescreen format, ends up in 4:3 on the DVD, and I don’t know why.

When I tried to convert an .mp4 file to “DVD” using FfmpegX, I let the conversion run overnight, and it was only 33% finished by morning.

What am I doing wrong? Does anyone have a simple solution?

Um... hi!
