File size is not that important, it is the time length that matters most. In what format is that video?

A standard 4.3 GB DVD can only hold about 60 minutes of best quality video. Reduce the bitrate until the video will fit on the DVD. If you have a menu then you will have to consider that also

In that case you'll either have to use a double-layer DVD, or compress the program file enough to fit on a single layer disc, because you can't trim bits off a program file and still have it run.

If you compress it, you won't be able to run the program from the disc but will have to copy it off and decompress it before you can use it.

Try using programs such as WinZip, WinRar, or 7-Zip, and see if you can squeeze it enough to make it fit.
