How do you get x264 encoded videos to play on DVD player?

    I have a DVD player that can play DivX/Xvid files, what I do is burn a few videos, depending on size (1.39 gig or 700mg) and my dvd player is able to play those without the need of any long DVD Authoring. I burn these videos as data on DVD blank. I'm sure I don't need to explain any further. My real question is, if I do the same with a x264 encoded file, meaning - to burn the file as DATA on DVD blank, will it be able to play on a DivX/Xvid supported DVD player or do I have to convert the x264 to another format? (right now its at ".mkv" extension)

    The only thing that plays x264 on PC is VLC player, nothing else, but I'd really love to burn the vid on a DVD and watch it on TV. Possible? or not?

    thanks

    got it, then there is no way of bypassing the recoding process.

    thanks!
