MP4 Files is a widely used video format and compatible with most portable devices and media player. However, when you try to play MP4 files on a DVD player, you will encounter some question like below:

Q: "I have made an MP4 video with DVD Creator and need to get it to play on DVD Player. But why when I try to put the MP4 file on the DVD player, it says 'the file is not supported yet. What should i do?"

It is because a DVD player may play various formats: DVD, CD, MPEG-2, Divx AVI. Obviously, the MP4 format is not in the queue, which is actually a video container that has different video and audio codecs. Fortunately, this tutorial will share  two solutions for you to play MP4 on a DVD player nicely.Method 1. Burning MP4 to DVD Player (5 Steps)

1. Power on your computer and launch the CD/DVD burning software. You need to have the MP4 video on a disk for the CD/DVD player to read it.

2. Decide on if you want to burn CD/DVD. This may all depend on the size of the MP4 video file. If the MP4 video is larger than 700 megabytes you need to go with a DVD (700 megabytes is as much as a CD can hold).

3. Select either video CD/DVD on the menu of the burning software. Click and drag the MP4 video into the main viewing screen of the software, title the disk and click "Burn." The burning process will begin. Depending on the size of the video file, the burning process may take a few minutes.

4. Remove the CD/DVD from the computer once it has finished burning. Power the DVD player on and insert the disk into the drive. Turn on the TV and switch it to the video setting for the DVD player.

5.Wait for the MP4 video to load up on the television screen. Press the "Play" button on the DVD player to begin the playback.

Editor Note: The MP4 format is readily acceptable on most video programs you use on your computer and it is even possible to play the video on a DVD player. The only requirement is that the MP4 be on either a video CD or DVD. If the MP4 is not on either a video CD or DVD, even if you have successfully burn MP4 to DVD without converting, you will still encounter issues in playing MP4 on DVD player: Regular standalone DVD players can only read movie DVD's (those are in MPEG-2, and if you view them in Windows Explorer, you see a folder structure with VIDEO_TS, and files like .VOB .IFO and .BUP). Newer DVD players that are DivX-certified can (in addition to the above) read data DVD's with an AVI file encoded in the DivX codec. Most of the time, you will fail to play MP4 on DVD player unless the DVD players have the "Nero Digital" label on them.Method 2. Converting MP4 to DVD Player friendly formats (3 Steps)

Another easier and quicker way to solve the problem is convert MP4 to a fully compatible format with DVD player. You can take advantage of Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate Windows | MacWith it, you can do batch conversion from MP4, AVI, MKV, MOV, FLV, etc. video files to DVD player compatible  MPEG-2, Divx AVI in ultra fast speed and excellent quality.
