Default Usable DVD

hi,
i just recently purchased a few tv shows from iTunes. I want to take those shows and put them on DVD, which would allow me to play them on a dvd player and watch them on a larger screen because my laptop is very small. Does anyone know how i would do that since you can only watch and record dxata dvds in itunes. These of corse do not play on other dvd players.
How can i make a copy of my purchased tv show from itunes on a dvd disk that will play on other dvd machines?
thanks in advance. oh i have an intel macbook running mac os 10.5.8.

Hi, welcome to the forum .

To make a DVD that will play on a DVD player, you will need to make a video DVD. These can be made with DVD authoring software.

For Mac, you can find suggestions here on our superlist for Mac :

Here are suggestions for Windows :

You can visit the sites for the software, and see if they have a Mac version.

DVD Styler, which has a Windows and Mac version both, is quite good though.

You can look here for a small tutorial for it :

You did not explain yourself properly, I am afraid.

I don't think you can make a video DVD from iTunes itself.

I don't purchase material from iTunes, so I don't have any idea of the format, or process... so, I will ask if you can copy the TV shows from the iTunes to the Mac. Maybe you can try that with iDump, or anyway you can.. I don't own a Mac. If you are able to copy the TV shows on to the Mac system, as video files, then you can use any DVD authoring software to burn those videos.

I think iTunes may be too controlling to allow you to do that. You can install itunes on to a number of different PCs (up to seven I think) and run your purchased material via your itunes account on each of them.

Ive only tried this with only the one movie (1941) Ive purchased ..so may be wrong.

iTunes is free, and can be downloaded and installed on any number of computers.

oops - better reword that.. you can install it on any number of PCs but you can only run your iTunes purchases on a limited number of them.
