For video to play on most standalone DVD players it has to be converted to mpeg2 and authored, specs are here: http://www.videohelp.com/dvd The exception to this is that some DVD players will play Divx encoded discs or mpeg's burned as data discs. That really depends on the player.

Final quality depends on many things like your source, the process you use, the encoder.... Lot's of variables. There is no best method, you have to take into account what you have and where you're going with it.

The file I'm working with is a very good quality to start out and I don't want to lose any of it if at all possible.
