You can fit 3 hours on a DVD if it was captured at 24fps. Easily so with dual layer (with twice as much space).

2 things about DCDs
FIRST a 4.7 gig DVD is really 4.34 gigs (formatting the disc and other vital info that the mfg stores on it)
SECOND, learn about BITRATES-by setting the proper BITRATE you can get 3 hours of infomation on a single layer DVD-I don't recommend putting action footage as it will not be the best quality but I also shoot a lot of seminars and it can be done. I routinely put 3 hours of footage on a disc because there is very little movement to degrade the look of the images.
Bitrates are your friend ;-)
