Different home dvd players support different formats
Although so called file sharing is commonplace we don't support that (can't probably)

What is the media you use ? I know that DVD-rw does not play on my dvd-player; dvd-r or dvd+r is no problem.

sorry about not answering sooner when you burn movies you have to burn them with dvd-r. dvd-rw wont play movies in a home dvd player i usually use sony or imitation 4.7 GB and have had to use a few 8.5 GB for some movies that i didnt want to lose the quality on which are pretty good for the price i also use nero 8 in windows vista and im using nero 3 in linux you have to dwonload video -ts files for nero 3 in linux and you can burn video -ts in k3b also i just like nero because i can burn most any format and burn HD and blue-ray disc

This is totally false. In fact I just finished watching a PBS show about Hubble I just burned tonight on a Memorex mini DVD-RW.
What you need to know is not all dvd players are the same, and you have to check before buying.
I have also burned and played DVD-R, DVD+R, and CD-RW on my home player. My player btw is not new, at least 2 years old.

My player: Samsung Home Theater five disk player
My burners: Plextor PX-716A and an Optiarc AD-7170A
My Distro: FC8
Software: K3b

It's late or I'd go looking for the model number.

You want to obey the standard Video Format for a DVD Video to ensure playback on your home unit.

You will have to put your .VOB files into a FOLDER called
Code: Select all
VIDEO_TS
and burn that folder to the DVD-/+R.

Also, you may have to have the proper .ifo file in the folder, too. But the folder structure is the first step in compliance.

Or, go buy yourself a Philips DVD player. They don't care about the structure or the files, they just play everything.
