Hello,
I filmed a clients wedding recently. I exported the footage in .MPEG-2, .mp4, and I used Movavi to convert the .mp4 to .vob format. I didn't try playing .mp4 on my dvd player or his. Anyway, neither of these formats work. I'm using DVD + R discs. I'm thinking of using .mov or buying
DVD-R discs and trying the same formats.
Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong or any solutions? Please help as I do not want to keep burning through discs to help this client.

Your player probably can't read the video and sound codecs you have used.

Try to convert to .avi (divX) with mp3 sound.

Sorry, that is not the title I wrote. They must have changed it. The DVDs work on my DVD player. They do not work on his. I will try .avi with the .mp3. Will it make a difference if I use DVD -R instead of DVD +R?

I don't think it will make a difference.

Don't forget .avi divX

So I downloaded the free DIVX Converter. Then I converted the video file to .divx (I assume that is the .avi divX you were referring to). I burned the file to a DVD + R disc and it wouldn't read on my DVD player. Then, I re-exported the original project in Premiere Pro to .avi. The file is over 40 GB. Obviously that won't fit on a disc. I may just have to give this guy a flash drive with the files on it.
