Unhappy-2 MPEG4 file ok, DVD burn ok, movie doesn't play

I think I am missing some critical information in the process. I am using a G4 computer, Mac OS X (and 9.2), I have an Ezquest DVD burner and Quicktime Pro. I am able to created MPEG-4 files, which I believe is the correct format for DVD and am successful in burning a DVD using Discribe software and selecting the DVD mode. However, when I try to play this on a video recorder (which is one that will play from any region) it says 'bad disc'. Does anyone know what I'm missing? Thanks

You are mistaken,. The proper format for DVD is MPEG-2...

I rang Apple and they said that MPEG-4 is the upgrade from MPEG-2. The latest version of Quicktime only exports MPEG-4 and not MPEG-2. Is this correct?

I have no idea - I'd suggest that you post your questions at a Mac-specific forum such as the one at 3IVX.com...
