Length of Highlights

Considering the limitations on the amount of data a disc can hold, 1. what media are you using to ensure compatibility with DVD players. 2. how long are your videos? 3. how do you break it down? For example, preparation highlight, ceremony, reception, etc. I just cut my first preparation highlight and it was 1.62Gb. That was 4mins of video.

That doesn't sound like you rendered the Video to MPEG2, or if you did, it was HD. We need more information to answer. What file type are you rendering to, what resolution, what bitrate, etc.

The other questions are well discussed already. Hit the search feature for lots of good discussions.

Personally, I use Sony DVD-R discs for all my "generic" looking DVDs, and I use Verbatim Lightscribe DVD-Rs for all my weddings.
