Sorry for the late reply, but GMail was giving me some trouble.

An easier way to do this is to use ffmpegX to transcode the video  
into a DVD-ready folder (VIDEO_TS) with properly formatted and  
configured VOB files, then use Toast Titanium to burn the VIDEO_TS  
folder into a playable disc. The result will be non-region coded, so  
it'll play anywhere, and far less annoying than dealing with iDVD  
(which only deals with DV video, by the way. It doesn't like anything  
compressed, or in any other containers, this includes DV data in an  
AVI file. And it especially hates MPEG-2 inputs)

Version: GnuPG v1.4.5 (Darwin)
