Only fuss with DVDs, (or anything) being sent into Canada is the risk of duty and brokerage fees. FSS indicates they use the postal service, and under $25 is duty free into Canada - but if the same package was sent by UPS/FedEx/DHL - they automatically charge a minimum brokerage fee and duty on everything - a $15 purchase can be slapped with an additional $30 or $40 of fees ontop.  Had it recently happen with a single DVD purchase and UPS. As long as it is mail - it's low risk - but anything else is a gamble.

Sure I understand. I see how in your situation it wouldn't be worth it. Every country has their own rules.

There is very little that is subject to duty any longer. Part of the GATT agreement. You'll have to pay GST/PST/HST; depending on where you're at. As you correctly pointed out, Post Offices don't load you up with inflated brokerage fees.
