Burn it in VCD, but make sure that your DVD player supports it, most will but 1 of mine won't.

Nero can burn VCD, there are also freeware to do it.
Read up on it at http://vcdhelp.com

what did you actually burn the file as........and with what program?.........you cant just drag/drop a movie file and expect it to play in anything except a pc..............in nero you choose to burn a vcd and let nero convert the file to mpeg and burn......but the movie has to be less than 70minutes or you will have to splice it with TMPEnc and burn it to multiple disks.
