If all you want is to burn that MP4 to DVD as a data disc, then that's something else, but I don't think that's your intent. Or take the Lagarith AVI and make both MP4 and DVD.
If you want to go down the vdub/lagarith route you can not use your camera/firewire setup. Vdub can capture with these but you end up with a DV.avi just as you would using WinDV
You can still use handbrake to convert to mp4. DVD creation can be done with avstodvd and imgburn for the actual burn to disk.
To use lagarith you would need at the very least a usb capture device such as a Hauppauge USB-Live2. Avoid cheap devices since results are variable.
