How to Convert MP4 to a DVD Player

Want to watch the MP4 videos on your DVD player? Well, we all know that regular DVD players gives good support to an MPEG-2 DVD structure file, and very few of them are compatible with MPEG-4 videos. So if you have downloaded movies or recorded clips in the MP4 (MPEG-4) video format, I suggest you convert the MP4 format to another format like the MPEG or burn the files onto a DVD directly for playbacks on a DVD player.

In this article, the Wondershare DVD Creator (DVD Creator for Mac) is highly recommended to help you convert your video files into all sorts of other regular DVD-compatible video formats. After that, you can watch them cozily on your home DVD player or TV. Please refer to the step-by-step guide below on how you can do it for a Windows operating PC. If you're running a Mac, please adopt the Mac version to convert your MP4 files so it'll be compatible for the DVD player in a similar way.

Preparation: Download the trial version of a DVD Creator to burn your MP4 files onto a DVD.
