Shrinking files

please can anyone help. i am new on here and a recently took lots of footage on my digital camcorder and i am wondering how to shrink them down to fit on a 8gb dvd+R to play on a standard dvd player, please help

What format are the does the camera record in? AVI, MPEG, MOV, etc? Are these separate files or one big file?

Hi, these were filmed in mpeg and are all seperate files

You don’t say how big the files are collectively but if the total is 8GB then all you would need is a dual layer disk (DL).
