How to Import MPG to iDVD (Mountain Lion included)
Part I. How to import MPG/MPEG to iDVD on Mac OS X
I'm trying to make a DVD of home movies for a Christmas present, but have run into a problem. In iDVD, when I double click on any of my MPG files, they play fine, but when I try to drag them onto the iDVD menu, I get a message saying, This action is not allowed in iDVD. These videos were taken by my wife's Sony Cybershot, and have not been edited in anyway. They play fine in QuickTime, and in the iDVD preview pane.
There are so many users asking such kind of questions, but you know what, only a MP4 file with H.264 or MPEG-4 codec could be imported to iDVD.
