How can I burn a movie DVD that will work on my TV DVD player?

Susan February 1, 2010

I have burned a movie on a DVD but is only playable on the computer. It will not play on my DVD player connected to my television. What am I missing?

    I just found Freemake Video converter & my wife is watching the DVD I made on her TV right now. I just converted 671 mb of FLV files I downloaded from Youtube, to a 4.7 gb DVD. Why there's such a big difference in size, I don't know.

    I have Nero 7 and I installed VLC Player. I download the Movie, Open Nero Startsmart,Select "Make DVD",then "add video files"then select the Movie which is normally in "AVI" and Burn it,then Play the Movie on my DVD Player (It can take a while to Recode)

    Many DVD players won't play formats such as .avi and perhaps some others. I have a Samsung that will, but when I wish to be certain it will play on any DVD player I convert the files to DVD format, using a program called DVD Flick. It is very user friendly and works extremely well. I use both -r and +r disks with no problem.

    Depends. First fine out what your DVD will play (example DVD -r or +r.) Than ensure the burn to that media.

    If you are running windows 7 there is a program called Windows DVD Maker that you can access from the start menu and this will take a movie file like AVI or WMV and burn it onto a DVD that will play on any standard DVD player.

      I personally use Joboshare DVD Creator.It helps me to convert and burn all popular video files (AVI, MPEG, DAT, MPG, WMV, ASF, MP4, 3GP, VOB) to DVD easily . It works well for me,you can give it a try.

      Hope it helps.

      Well, Windows DVD Maker may works for you, or not. I found no luck with Windows DVD Maker myself. You know what, the simplest and professional application for this task is Aimersoft DVD Creator which works great. You burn a movie to DVD with this tool and then you can view them on your home DVD player. Very easy to use. Highly recommended and give it a try.
