    Are you wanting to put a couple of films on one DVD that can actually be played in a regular DVD player, or just to store the mpg/avi files on a DVDR to play on a computer?

    Yeah, but do you want them to play in a regular DVD player, or just have them as files you can play on a computer?

    If you do, you can reduce the bitrate, but reducing the bitrate too much will make it look like you're watching youtube :-/

    Have a look here: Bitrate Calculator

    And it will work out the bitrate for you.

    Depending on your DVD authoring software though, it may not allow you to go below a certain bitrate.

    As a guide, using 'Super Long Play' mode in Nero Express will allow you to fit 6 hours on one 4.5GB DVDR. That uses 1,691 kbit/sec and will half the resolution.

    In that case, I recommend Nero. It's dead easy, just drag and drop the movies in the order you want them to appear on the disc. There's even menu templates available so you don't have to do much work at all!
