I don't have Toast, but I reckon it would be able to make a DVD out of
the proper directory structure (VIDEO_TS, etc.), which is what the free
MacTheRipper can do for you.

In any case OS X all by itself can with a little persuading. I use
Burn[1] which is an excellent little free burning program for OS X.

right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself.
