I'm running windows 7 64 bit on a home built.  I have a number of MP4 video files that I'd like to play on a dvd player.  Looking for a solution.  Any takers?

Hi Zestypanda,

   I did that but my burning software (ImgBurn) burns the files as mp4 not video_ts.  my dvd player will not play mp4.  What software do you use and how do you tell it to burn as video_ts?

Hi Zestypanda

   Well I tried windows DVD maker but no luck.  When I tried to add my mp4 file the program in the add window it gave me the following error message:

 

ADD ITEMS

   0 Files were successfully added

   1 file could not be added

   The file pat1.mp4 is not a supported file type and it cannot be imported.

 

Any words of wisdom?

Since you are using ImgBurn follow the steps here, if this is NOT how you did it

http://www.afterdawn.com/guides/archive/burn_dvd_folder_imgburn.cfm

This article shows how to use ImgBurn to burn DVD folders (VIDEO_TS, AUDIO_TS) to blank DVD media. The resulting disc will be playable on pretty much all DVD players as long as the audio/video content meets standards.

I believe that Any Video Convertor has the capability of converting the mp4 to DVD format and burn to a disk.

Hi Queen-Evie,

  Yes I used ImgBurn and it burns the mp4 file on my hard drive to an mp4 file on the dvd.  The mp4 file works just fine on my pc but does not through the dvd player.  I've looked through the destructions (OK instructions) and I keep running up against this statement: "Remember, you must have a VIDEO_TS folder (often accompanied by an AUDIO_TS folder) for this to work properly." but nowhere does it tell how to get the video_ts file.

   The guides in the site you suggested look good but will take a month of sundays to go through.  Thank you for your help.

 

Hi Budapest,

   I'll download Any Video converter and try it out and let you know.  Thank you.

Hi Budapest, Queen-Evie and Zestypanda.

   Following parts of you threads I've come up with "a" solution.  If you submit an MP4 file to DVDFLICK and ask for an IOS image file it gives it to you then, if you ask, imgBurn is called and the file is burned to a dvd.  That image file plays on most dvd players.  Thank you for your help.
