If I backup a DVD to a DVD+R with compression on my computer, will the copy play on a regular DVD player (ie one made for your tv not one made for your computer). I copied Friends Season 3 Disc 1 to a DVD+R with about 30% compression (6.8 gig to 4.7). It plays just fine on my Apex DVD player, but I read somewhere (probably on another afterdawn thread) that Apex is just a computer DVD player packed in a regular DVD player shell. Can most DVD players play DVDs that were compressed on a computer DVD drive? or does it have to be uncompressed to play on a regular DVD player? Also, so I don't look foolish - what is the proper lingo for refering to a DVD player for your tv vice one for your computer (I know CD recorders are differentiated as audio versus computer CD recorders).
