    What you need to do is to convert the movie file to vcd or dvd compliant file and then author a dvd or vcd. Use for example tmpenc xpress to convert the movie and then use tmpenc dvd author to create a dvd compliant dvd playable on a standalone dvd player.

    If the mpeg movie is ok from the beginning, just use tmpenc dvd author and use the mpeg file is input file.

    I recommend to look at the excellent guide section here at AD on how to author a dvd or convert files =>
