Part 2. Burn iPhone Recorded Videos in iDVD on Mac
iDVD is a DVD-creation application for OS X which allows the user to burn QuickTime Movies, MP3 music, and digital photos to a DVD that can then be played on a commercial DVD player. The videos shot with iPhone can be directly imported into iDVD for burning. Below are the steps:
