I am an event videographer here in Los Angeles and am coming close to finishing a recent project. It is 3 hours 30 minutes long and wondering what would be the best solution to deliver it onto DVD. I was thinking of doing it onto DVD-9, but my client plans on ordering many copies of it (50+) so getting it dubbed will be a very time consuming task. And also current DVD-9 writable disks out there just arent as compatible as ones made by glass masters.

I was considering of compressing it onto a standard DVD-5 disk or splitting the video between 2 different DVD-5 disks. What can you guys recommend that I do?

Trying to get it all on one DVD-5 would mean compressing it to 2.7 Mbps (with ac3 .192 Mbps audio) so that is not going to look very good.

I would at least break it up and if you can do it evenly you can encode each half at 5.5 Mbps. Duplicating 2 DVD-R would probably be a lot cheaper then 1 DVD+R DL.
