    Unfortunately like most new members here, you think that by being brief you are helping yourself but in fact your post is missing pertinent details we need to know if you want help.

    You say "fit in one or two dvds". Does this mean:
    1) I want to burn it in one or two dvds, but data discs are fine so long as the resulting file(s) are of high quality.
    or
    2) I want to burn it in one or two dvds in standard DVD video format so that any normal DVD player can play my video.

    There may be other follow up questions, but you really need to answer the above for now if you truly want help.

    The file should fit on two DVD-R discs if you lose the DTS audio which is over 1GB.

    My Brother's girlfriend bought a Philips Blu-Ray player about a year ago that plays data DVDs with x264/MKV. I myself rarely burn discs anymore. Everything either goes on the MyBook, a HDD drive I have lying around that will fit in my external enclosure or one of my 30GB thumbdrives.
