Hi. I just bought a laptop that burns double layered dvds, and i read up on it and everything to find out what it was. But. Since i'm completely new to dvds period, i wanted to ask was it possible to burn multiple movies to on one dvd. I asked someone and they said it would really decrease the quality because of the compressing and what not. But that person doesnt use double layered dvds. So thats what made me wonder, would it be possible to do that on double layered dvds without degrading the quality too much. Because i just odnt see the point in burning only ONE 700-1000 mb movie to a disc that can hold over 8 gigs of material. seems too wasteful.

Size of a home movie isn't so important as length because it gets converted (transcoded) to DVD standards and structure before being burned. The highest bitrate and therfore the highest quality preservation allows for about 1 hour of video per single layer DVD and 2 hours for a double layer. Setting the bitrate so that 4 hours of video will fit on a double layer will result in degradation but, depending on the quality of the original source file, you may notice little or no degradation. An eight hour bitrate setting will almost always show significant degradation unless the source is quite bad as well.
