Play MP4 via DVD Player
Commonly, a standalone DVD player can only read DVDs that have to use MPEG-2 or DivX. When you try to directly burn MP4 files to DVD or your DVD creator app has no feature of converting MP4 to MPEG-2, DivX, you will only find that DVD player cannot play MP4.
Most DVD players can only read movie DVD's (those are in MPEG-2, and if you view them in Windows Explorer, you see a folder structure with VIDEO_TS, and files like .VOB .IFO and .BUP). Newer DVD players that are DivX-certified can (in addition to the above) read data DVD's with an AVI file encoded in the DivX codec. Most of the time, you will fail to play MP4 on DVD player unless the DVD players have the "Nero Digital" label on them.
