I have a DVD-R with a size of 4.7 GB.  I have a video with a size of 1 GB. The video is in a wmv format.
The 1 GB video will not fit on the 4.7 GB DVD.   Why?  Is there any way to make it fit?

Thanks for your help.

Are you wanting this to be playable on a DVD player? If so the video needs to be re-encoded to MPEG 2 by Popcorn as part of its DVD-making process. Since your source is .wmv you need to have one of the paid versions of Flip4Mac for this process to work. I think you need the Pro version of Flip4Mac which I think costs $49. As long as the video is less than about 2-1/2 hours long it will fit the DVD just fine. It can be even longer in which case you can use a two-step process to get it to fit. I can explain that process to you if it is necessary. But I doubt the video is that long.

Thanks for the information.  I do want this to play on a regular DVD player.  The program is 2:39.  I would like to get it onto one 4.7 GB DVD if possible.
I do have access to Sorenson Squeeze (no Popcorn) and am currently trying to squeeze it down to make it fit. We have PC not MAC.  Any tips would be appreciated.

If you have a PC you aren't using Popcorn. I'm a Mac guy so don't know how to help you.

Please provide the exact name of the software you are using. Store bought (or purchased online)? Are you trying toi make a DVD out of the wmv file you have? How long in time is the duration of that video? Provide details of what you are trying to do.
