By use of any DVD encoding and structuring program as
• DVD Studio Pro
• Roxio Toast™
• Burn (only free application - and very simple - no elegance at all)
Burning via DeskTop/Finder will result in a Data-DVD - not a Video-DVD to be played on standard DVD-Players. To do that You need one of above.

Thanks! I am having the exact same issue! I downloaded the Burn Software but now I am hoping you can tell me what to do. Is there a way to export my IMovie to this software!
Thanks for your help!

From iMovie, you can use SHARE/MOVIE. Choose Large size, and save it in a place where you can find it. Then you can just drag it into burn.

I copied an iMovie project from a friend which I then put on my own computer in iMovie. I downloaded Burn but when I go to "share" in iMovie, everything is gray, not black so I can't go any further. I already did "finalize project" but I'm not sure what else to do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I have this same issue - I donwloaded Burn and was able to burn to the DVD - it played on my computer, but did not play on my DVD player.
I loaded my imovie video into the Burn program - chose Video and also DVD from the drop down menu - named my disc and when I clicked burn it asked me to convert my file to something different. I'll have to do it again to remember exactly what it was I converted to.
I would really love to figure this out - I'm doing this video for church and they need to play it on a dvd/tv set up.

When a DVD don't play on DVD player or even on the Mac that bured it - it usually fall back on
• Use of cheap media e.g. Memorex, NoName etc - Works for Data-DVDs but not for VIDEO-DVDs - I only use Verbatim
• Type used - DVD+/-RW usually do not work
• DVD+R usually do not work on OLDER DVD-players (So I use DVD-R)
• DL-DVDs usually more problematic than SL-DVDs
• BURN SPEED - by setting down burn speed to x4 or even x1 usually results in less burn errors and a BETTER DVD
