Hello, I have an HD movie file in MKV format. It is a 4.9GB file. I wish to make it readable using a DVD player... so my questions are:

1) Is it possible to reduce its file size to a 4.6GB so that it would fit into a DVD-R/RW?
-I have something in mind like reducing the movie duration up to 20% (from 100 min to 80 min, using an AVS Video Editor)

2) If i would be able to reduce its movie length, How can i produce it with same HD video quality?

3) lastly, how to burn the edited/reduced movie file into a DVD-R/RW (using Nero 9) to make it readable in my DVD player?

Thanks in advance

Yes, you can edit the movie such that the final edited size is 4.6 GB or less. 'Fading' frames can be reduced; some scene transitions can be shortened; some scenes can be 'cut'.

Select the options (High, Medium, etc) that will give you the finished size of 4.6 GBs. I have found that 'Standard' works best for me.

Select the burn format that your DVD player will handle. Mpeg?

That defeats the HD quality!
One it is a DVD format, you wont have the same HD quality (2)

Just play this file to HD media players like TVIX, WD, Seagate, DUNE....
