How to convert iTunes music/movie/TV shows and burn DVD?
"I have discovered some old movies to download (archive.org) and purchased some music from iTunes. I download them in.flv, mp4 or m4v, m4p formats to view on my computer. I would like to convert them into a format that I can burn onto a DVD to play on TV via a DVD player. I guess, just generally, what format(s) will a DVD player accept to play on TV - besides Video_TS folders? Many thanks. "
