On the whole, you should be able to play your MP4 videos on most devices, as they are one of the most widely-compatible formats in use nowadays. However, if you want to burn your video onto a DVD that can be watched directly on DVD players – you will need to use a DVD format instead.
While converting videos to DVD format can be a bit complicated if you’ve never done it before, Movavi Video Converter will help smooth most of the bumps you’re likely to encounter. In fact it will let you quickly convert MP4 to DVD so that all you need to do when it’s done is burn the files to a DVD.
How to Set Up an MP4 to DVD Conversion
To set up the conversion, you should first launch Movavi Video Converter and add the MP4 video that you want to convert. There are two ways you can do that: Either by clicking ‘Add Media’ then ‘Add Video’ and selecting it, or by dragging and dropping the MP4 video file into the working area as indicated on the interface.
After you’ve successfully added the video it will be listed in the working area. The next step you need to take is to set the target format – which in this case is DVD. That really is quite easy in Movavi Video Converter, as you just need to open the ‘Video’ tab near the bottom of the interface, select the ‘DVD-Compatible Video’ category, then choose one of the presets listed there.
At this point you may notice that there are two types of DVD-compatible video presets – PAL and NTSC. To be honest most modern TVs have no issue coping with either, though on some older TVs it may still be an issue. As a general rule, NTSC was the format used in North America and Japan, while PAL was used in Europe, as well as most of Asia and Africa.
Considering most modern TVs can play both PAL and NTSC, you should be able to choose either one unless there is a specific reason to prefer one over the other. Instead, the only real factor you need to consider when selecting the format preset in Movavi Video Converter is the quality – that can be low, medium, or high.
Once you’ve selected a preset, you should be ready to start converting your video. Before that, you could click on the ‘folder’ icon to check or alter the destination folder, then click ‘Convert’ to begin converting it. When the conversion is done, you can burn the converted video files on a DVD, and watch it on your DVD player whenever you want.
