I recently edited a video on Elements 23, made an MP4 version but wish to convert it to a format that will play on an ordinary dvd player. Have tried several conversion apps without success. Any suggestions?

You cannot convert a mp4 to use on a disk in a dvd player. You need an authoring program to do that.

window only:

TMPGEnc Authoring Works 6 - The Ultimate DVD / Blu-ray / AVCHD Authoring Tool - Pegasys Inc.

 

If you have a dvd player with an usb connection put the mp4 file on a flash drive and use that in your dvd player or plug it in your tv.

I used to have two Blu-Ray players, a Sony and a Panasonic.   I copied an H.264 MP4 file to a DVD "data disk".  The would play on one of the players.  I think it was the Sony.   I no longer have a DVD burner, so can't verify.  I looked up the specs on a current "best selling" $80 Blu-Ray player and it included H.264 MP4 files on the list.  

 

If it is an older DVD (not Blu-Ray) I don't think there is a chance that it will play video files.

 

That said,  I agree with Ann.  Put videos on a flash drive.
