iDVD More than 90 min?

Is it posible to get more than 90 min in iDVD?
My local 4-H has an oral history project that's about 5 hours which means that I can't even get it on 3 - 90 min discs.
I also have Toast 6, but only use it for copies. Can I do it in Toast?

Thanks, Chris

The latest version of iDVD does burns up to 2 hours. You can try that. You could also buy DVD2ZoneX (check google) to combine multiple of those DVDs onto one using greater compression. I think it would be the cheapest way to get more onto each DVD.

I have a quick question for you though. How long of a DVD can Toast 6 make? I know it can convert MPEG1 into DVD (I would want to take MPEG1 video files of TV shows and save them as DVDs), but how much time can be put onto it? 2 hours? 4 hours? Have you tried it?

Hey Mark,
I don't know. It doesn't say anything about it in the manual. The DVD's I got though says up to six hours of video. I can't check the Toast help right now because I got iDVD4 & am burning the discs. (Thanks again for that) I'll check the help tomorrow & if it says anything about it I'll get back to you.
Peace, Chris
