Whew! Squeezing 4 hours onto a single surface disk and keeping quality is a very tough job. About the best you can use to do it is TMPGenc with a quarter D1 setting. And even then you'll still lose resolution. Using the low resolution setting and MP2 audio, you can get 270 minutes onto a single surface DVD-R. But many DVD authoring programs will not like this and try to 'fix' the video, messing up everything.
