How to Burn MP4 Video to A DVD

burn-mp4-to-dvd

If you want to play your MP4 videos on a stand alone DVD player the files needs to be converted to a DVD-VIDEO disc format (VIDEO_TS directory with VOB, BUP, IFO files). Check out DVDFlick, it is free. Then burn MP4 to DVD with ImgBurn with ease.

Note, that SOME stand alone players can play .avi files on a disc, this is known as a divx disc, but not all and that mp4 file is just plain useless to your player anyways. Check the documentation on your player to see if it does support playing divx (.avi) discs, either way DVDFlick is your best option.

Once you have converted your two files to the proper DVD-Video format, you may then use ImgBurn to burn it to disc. This guide will cover converting a full set of Vob, Ifo and Bup files on your Hard Drive to Single Layer Media. We recommend only Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden Discs.

Firstly make sure your Vob, Ifo and Bup files are in a folder called VIDEO_TS. This makes the whole process slightly simpler.

Open ImgBurn and switch to Build mode. (In the menu at the top, click ‘Mode’ -> ‘Build’)

Ensure it’s set to output to Device. (In the menu at the top, click ‘Output’ -> ‘Device’)

Alternatively, click on the button shown below to switch the ‘Output’ between ‘Image File’ and ‘Device’. (Please Note: The picture shown below is what you’d see when the ‘Output’ is already set to ‘Device’)

Click the ‘Browse for a folder…’ button in the ‘Source’ box and navigate to the folder where your files are stored. Select the folder and click on the ‘OK’ button.

Press the ‘Calculate’ button to make sure your project will fit on Single Layer media.

The ‘Min. Req. Media’ text should match what you’re trying to burn onto. As this is the ‘single layer’ guide, it should read something like ‘DVD+-R/RW’.

Switch to the ‘Device’ tab and you’ll be able to select your desired ‘Write Speed’ for the disc.

Whilst here, if you’re using DVD+R media, know what you’re doing and your drive support it, you can mess around with the booktype settings so that your drive makes the burnt disc look like a DVD-ROM. This can improve the compatibility with certain players.

Now go to the ‘Options’ tab, choose ISO9660+UDF in the ‘File System’ drop down box.

Then go to the ‘Labels’ tab and enter the label in both fields (you can click on the icon shown to copy the label from one field to all the others)

Then when you’re all done playing with the settings, press the ‘Build’ button to get things started.

The Information box will then pop up telling you some details about what’s about to get burnt to the disc.

Press ‘Ok’ and it will start writing the Disc.

Then sit back and relax whilst your Disc is burning.

It will be dependent on your drive, media and firmware as to how long the burn and verify will take.

You’re done.

Editor’s Note: As mentioned above, some stand alone players can play .avi files on a disc, this is known as a divx disc. Then, why not try Brorsoft Video Converter Ultimate?
