I've made one 20 minute photo slideshow and one 3 minute one in VideoWave, brought them into MyDVD and created a project with menus, titles, etc. I've burned the project from MyDVD onto a DVD+R and it plays perfectly in both my computer and my PS4. However, when I've given them to friends to view, they have had some issues with playback.
One friend noted that on her computer it didn't open automatically to the menu screen and there were some strange file names that she had to figure out which ones to click on before the slideshows would play (but they played).
The other friend noted that it played okay on her computer, but was not able to play it at all in her DVD player.
I will need to be making many copies of these for distribution to 50+ people, and want to ensure that there will be no issues with playback.
Here's my QUESTION(s):
Is there another way that I should be burning these DVD's other than straight from MyDVD?
Is there some setting that I am missing when burning the DVD that makes the DVD playable in most machines (not just newer technology, but also older DVD players and computers)?
Is there a different type of DVD that I should be burning to that would make it more compatible with more machines?
Any help or insight would be most appreciated.
