Used iDVD for this and for some reason when I burn something the video (1080p) tends to lose its quality... Is there anything wrong that I am doing here? Help is greatly appreciated!

When you use iDVD, it converts to NTSC standard 720X480. You could burn the 1080p file as data but it won't play in a DVD player.

Your options are to either the aforementioned data disc, accept the iDVD limitations or upgrade to Blu-Ray hardware and software. Good luck!!

Thank you. I will try to do some research on burning video into a blu-ray and look for a software that does it. :)

You can use Adobe Encore to create blu-ray, but be aware that you will also need a blu-ray hardware in your computer.
