Hello Mona,

Where else do you want it to play?
I would like to give a copy of the video to each family of the child that played on the team, therefore i want the video to work on their Dvd players. My Xbox wont even play it. I tried putting a usb straight in tv, but audio wont play..

To play a video on a tv in must be in Mp4 format, to play another devices .avi might work.

Through which program did you write the disk? If NERO then does not worry sometimes it happens. Try it on a DVD player, if there is the same problem there, that would not be correctly indicated in the recording path. Personally, I advise you to re-write to a new disk (if there is such an opportunity). And my advice: in detail review all the ticks and messages that the program offers you before recording a new DVD disk.

Why would they try it in a DVD player? They already have, and it is stated by the OP with:
"it wont play on anything but my laptop"

I agree with Ambucias, the file format sounds wrong. If the PC has the protocols and codecs to play it, but a regular player does not, it is the file format.

maybe your movie was damaged.
