It is possible but you have to change the resolution before you burn it.

For that you need a separate reauthoring program that will reencode your video but just remember that if you start with a small resolution the bigger you change it the more image quality you will lose.

It is the same principle as a picture if you start with a picture of 320 x 240 and you enlarge it to 1280 x 960 you will see a big lost of image quality.

1. Open Windows Movie Maker. Once the video editor loads upload the video you want to burn into the program by clicking "File," "Import" and choose the video file.
2. Click-and-drag it down into the timeline of the program, then select "File," "Save Video As." An export window appears on the screen. Title the video, select a location to save the file too, then select "Advanced." A new window appears with additional options. Select the resolution area and increase the size of the video file. The larger the image the more room it takes up on the television screen but the grainier it is going to appears. Click "OK" and the video file exports as the larger picture.
3. Insert the blank DVD into the DVD burner and launch the DVD burning software you have installed on the computer. Choose "Video DVD" followed by "Add Videos." Select the video you just enlarged and click "OK." Once the video loads into the display window of the DVD burner click "Burn" and the larger pictured video burns onto the video DVD.
