DVD's use a structure that has to be followed in order for a movie to be played back.

Most newer DVD players will play files other than the standard dvd file structure with mpeg2. Try just burning the file as a DVD Data Disc and see if it plays. If not you can use Nero Burning Rom. If you choose DVD Disk it will automatically convert the file to DVD and burn. In some cases if it is not a common file format it might not work.
