Burned DVD won't play on DVD player

I have downloaded a 22 minute video that I would like to burn to a DVD to play in my DVD player.  I have attempted on both DVD-R and DVD+R.  They burn to the disc but will not play on the DVD player.  The error message states that playback may not be available on this disk.  I have used the windows support search to problem solve on my own but have had no success.  I have ensured that I am selecting the CD/DVD player option to utilize the Mastered format.  I have gone into my option and have no filters on.  I have the video format on NTSC since I am from Pennsylvania/US.  I have not tried to burn it on slow or medium speed because it does burn to the DVD without problem it just won't playback on the DVD player.  What do you recommend as my next course of action for troubleshooting.

Are you using DVD+R r/w media?  Download and try Imgburn.

Re: Burned DVD won't play on DVD player

I would suspect that the video is not DVD Mpeg2 compliant.  Depending on the DVD player, some will play other formats, also.  If there are no video authoring programs on the computer, try Windows Movie Maker (free) to see if the video needs too be converted to DVD Mpeg2 standards.

Re: Burned DVD won't play on DVD player

TheOldMan,

        I installed the free Windows movie maker and that did the trick.  I burned my DVD and played it on my DVD player and no problems.  Thank you so much.  Kudos to you for taking the time to help me resolve this problem.  I sincerely appreciate it.

Re: Burned DVD won't play on DVD player

I put some photos on a DVD using the software for dvd movies (Movie Maker)...  It shows video burned to DVD -- and eventhough using movie maker -- it would not play on the DVD player.  Nothing would happen.
