Hello all,

A Mac question on behalf of one of my customers if i may?  I'm not versed in iMovie at all - and although it's kind of a B&O question it's more of a Mac question.

He has an iMac, running Mountain Lion 10.9.3 - and is using iMovie.

He would like to transfer some stills and/or a home movie onto a DVD which will play on his BeoVision 7-40" Mk3.  

The only option he can find is to export to Quicktime, which writes into files which will not play on his TV (.mov).

Would anyone have any recommendations as to a program or utility he can use?

Cheers,

Lee

Unfortunately, Macs do not come with iDVD any longer...

You can use Toast:

Thanks for your response but I think the query really relates to the file type that is written to enable the iMovie to be viewed on a beovision7-40. MP4 and .mov files are not recognised by the TV.

any suggestions of file type??

You can burn iMovie to DVD with iDVD. The following is the steps about how to burn iMovie to DVD with iDVD.

  1. Create a project in iMovie 10.
  2. First highlight the project in the iMovie Library. Then go to File > Share > File. And for Size choose 480p and click Next.
    *As DVD is standard definition(SD) not HD. 480p is the correct resolution for standard DVDs. If you share a larger resolution it is a waste because it will be encoded as SD.
    *If you cannot see “Share” button in iMovie or you can see “Share” button but nothing happens when clicking “Share” button, make sure your uninstall MacKeeper which will disable all the sharing functions of iMovie. Then reinstall iMovie 10.
    *If you do not have MacKeeper installed but “Share” button still does not work, try to delete iMovie 10 and install it again.
  3. Share lists in iMovie 10

  4. Choose a location on the hard drive to save the file to.
    For easy to locate your movie file next time, you can set file to end up on your desk top
  5. Wait for the blue circle activity indicator to finish.
    It will take minutes to finish if your file is small. However, it will take hours if your files is large. So wait in patience until the indicator disappears which means the share operation has finished. During the process you can click the activity indicator to see details.
  6. In Finder, verify that iMovie created an MP4 file in the location specified in step 3.
    If the file does not appear in the designated folder you created in finder then close iMovie. Open iMovie and do the share again.
  7. Open iDVD and click “Create New Project.”
  8. Give the project a name and save it to your hard drive.
  9. Drag the file you created earlier from the Finder into your iDVD project window.
    Or go to File > Import > Video and choose your video there.
  10. Make any adjustments to drop zones, etc.
  11. Click the Burn button.
  12. Insert a DVD and let it burn.

If you don't have iDVD, you can read through this guide on how to burn iMovie to DVD without iDVD to get the solution.

The much easier way is to install a Chromecast on de BV7. Easily the Chromcast can be fitted inside the cable panel behind the BV7. With the Chromacast you can stream your videos form your imac, plus you can also watch Netflix etc.

The initial question was asked in 2014.

Who burns a DVD today?

Of course things like the ChromeCast is a better solution.
