As long as it’s not too big to go through the standard letter frame thing at the post office you will be fine
Max length: 24cm
Max width: 16.5cm
Max thickness: 0.5cm
Max weight: 100g
I’d say you need a minimum of 2 First class stamps.
If it’s slightly bigger you will need to go to the post office and will cost you about £1.50
I've posted single DVDs with just a 2nd Class Stamp multiple times in the past.
They've always arrived at the destination.

I used the clear plastic "square" sleeves, plus a card style outer envelope.
Search Amazon for B01EFRX11S and B009P0GV68 for examples.
Just stuck two first class stamps on it. Surely that's enough postage cost
Stamp on the cd case several times and make it thinner. Then put the cd in and post. If recipient complaints you day 'it was OK when I posted it. Must be the post office'.

Should be. Jiffy bag will certainly be over 5mm width max of standard "letter" size so will drift into "large letter". LL 250g 1st class = £1.50

Yes that's right. This is what I thought. So stuck the two first class stamp on it

You paid £1.50 of postage charges with £1.40 of stamps?
I post DVDs every day in their case and it costs £1.32 second class and £1.50 first class up to a weight of 250 gms
I wonder if opening the DVD case flat would satisfy those above dimensions ? Increased danger of damage though

...but only after a trip to the sorting office and a Royal Mail fine for underpaid postage. If all you were concerned about was it reaching the recipient, there was no need to put any stamps on at all

As it's Xmas, and they're overwhelmed, I wouldn't be surprised if you get away with it though.

To be fair it will probably get delivered second class anyway as they never deliver on time at Christmas so I'll be sending the fine to them for a refund as I would probably have overpaid
