Quick ‘n’ Dirty: How to Burn a Simple DVD

Here’s a quick guide to getting that DVD from Compressor onto a menuless (?menu-less?) DVD video.

With the default DVD presets in Compressor, you will get these files- a .ac3 (dolby digital) file for the audio and a .m2v file which is short for Mpeg-2 video:

DVDs require elementary streams, which are separate video and audio only files, and will then be “mux-ed” to a DVD as .vob (video object) files. You can open the mpeg-2 video file with Quicktime Player or Mpeg Streamclip to check if they are what you need, but be careful, as a large mpeg 2 file takes a long time to load in OS X. You are now ready to author a DVD in DVD Studio Pro.
