For a GCSE in Physical Ed, these days instead of examiners going to the school to watch the pupils, they want video evidence sent on DVD. Our school's film contains a dozen or so pupils doing various sports. It is two hours long and has to fit on ONE DVD.
I intended to simply render it as WMV @ 3mbps, so the resulting file would be a couple of gig, and then just burn the file as a data DVD. This will be fine for the purpose, and I'm sure that our video will be easier to view than a lot of videos they receive from other schools (I've heard of schools sending in tiny resolution mobile phone footage, and even sending blank CDs by mistake).
However, the icing on the cake would be to include chapters and a menu, so the examiner can navigate a little. Or if not a menu, perhaps some kind of 'next' and 'back' points to mark each section.
But, I don't want to mess about actually creating a playable DVD. I've never done it before, and it seems like a giant hassle and very time consuming.
So what are the available options if I'm burning the video as a data file?
