Well, the answer is obvious: MPEG 2

Yes, there is a whole lot of video conversion and DVD mastering software available, software supplied with the OS is not enough. The conversion software may depend on the you have the movie in, DVD mastering software is a must. Try to visit www.videohelp.com, under the section called "tools" you'll find all kinds of software.

All you need is ImgBurn it's free and does a great job, and there are dozens of applications who can do the same thing.

I have some software called ConvertXToDVD. It reallly is as easy as selecting a video file (or multiple, pretty much any format), create a menu if you want to, then click "Convert & Burn", it just converts it and burns it straight to DVD.

I can't be bothered with anything more complicated, but this works a treat with a couple of clicks.

Beware though any program will take several hours to burn a movie to DVD, a 2 hour movie takes about 4 hours to burn.

Cheers

Nero takes just under an hour...

Depends completely on your machine specs...

Get nero or sonic and when you go to burn select creat dvd and select the files you want to burn and the software should do the rest for you. I've always done it that way and never had an issue.

OR, you could just connect the S-video out from your laptop directly to the TV, and voila!

Nero is good for one thing, making coasters!

If I were you, and were to hypothetically burn a DVD to watch on TV I would think that the hypothetical file would be in a .iso format. In which case, I would hypothetically use Deep Burner, a free program that burns a DVD of 4GB in about 20 minutes, I've never made a coaster with Deep Burner. Now all of this is just hypothetical of course.
