    DVD's are not "high definition". iDVD can't make HD DVD's.

    If the HD video is under about 20 minutes you could make a "data" DVD to store an HD copy of the file.

    This data DVD can't be played on a set top DVD player or any other DVD playback appliance but could be copied to a local disk drive for playback via QuickTime Player.

    The end user would insert your DVD to mount it on their machine. Once mounted the QuickTime .mov file could be dragged to the user desktop. The file data rate is too high to playback properly directly from the mounted DVD.
