    You have several options.
    1) Burn it to a DVD+R DL disc which has a capacity of 8.5 GB (no loss in quality)
    2) Use DVD-Fab or Convert X to DVD to shrink and burn the 5.2 GB video to a standard DVD+R disc with a capacity of 4.71 GB (some quality loss)
    3) Use a video editor like Sony Vegas Pro to split the video into 2 parts so they can be burned to 2 standard DVD+R discs (some quality loss)

    DVD shrink can compress it and also clip from the begining and/or end of the movie. DVD shrink does not remove protection, it works with unprotected disks or DVD files.
