Download Perian here:

This will allow Quicktime to be able to play your file. When Quicktime can play your file, iDVD will be able to import it.

If this doesn't work, please respond back and I will try to walk you through a couple other techniques.

Here is the converter I use, it is called VisualHub, and can convert just about anything to the iDVD format. I wanted you to try the first method, because it is free. VisualHub will allow you to try the program for 2-minute conversions, to make sure it will work for your purpose. The full version of this converter is $23.32.

Here is the link to it:

If you are more technically inclined you can use ffmpegx, which does the same thing for free. It does require a bit more computer expertise to set it up.

Here is the link to that tool:

iDVD accepts both .mp4 and .mov files, so converting to one of those will be your best bet.
