Guide: Convert and Play MP4 on DVD Player

Step 1: Load MP4 files to the program

After you install the MP4 to DVD converter in your computer, just launch it. Then click add button to import your MP4 files. It supports batch conversion.

Step 2: Choose output format

Next, you need to click “Format” drop-down menu to select “DivX AVI(*.avi)” as the output format from “Common Video” category. It is a good format for playing on DVD.

Tip: You can also customize output video quality by click “Setting” button to change video bitrate, frame rate, video size, etc, keeping video quality as true and so on.

Step 3: Start conversion

Click “Convert” button to start and finish converting MP4 to DVD supported format. After the conversion, hit the Open button to get the output AVI files. Now it would be easy for you to play the output AVI files on a DivX-Certified DVD player.

Additional Tips:

If your DVD player lacks support for DivX, you can try to burn .AVI to DVD with Nero. Basically there are two different ways to burn an .avi-file on DVD with Nero for play in a DVD player:

1. If you have a DVD-player that is capable of playing avi-files, you can simply use Nero Burning Rom or Nero Express and burn a data disc with the .avi-file untouched.

2. However, for NeroVision, I suppose you don’t wanta data disc with an avi-file but a “real” Video-DVD in compatible DVD-format. For that you will need Nero Video. In the “Create & Export” menu, choose DVD- DVD-Video, then import the .avi-file and follow the instructions. You can either create a menu and chapters, or just make a simple DVD without menu and one video. In the final step, NeroVideo will either write the necessary DVD structure on a DVD or to a folder on your hard disk. If you used NeroVision before, it should be easy for you because NeroVideo is very similar.
