If you chose DVD video as the format in the Toast Video window, then Toast created a DVD playable on any DVD player. Is your Samsung player a Blu-ray player? I didn't know that a standard-def video DVD player could play differing formats.

Thanks for info. I do have a Blu-ray player. The DVDs play on my other DVD player so I think you must be right. I will consider this topic solved thank you so much I appreciate it.

It's not solved yet. You should be able to burn a data disc with the video in one of those supported formats. Choose DVD-Rom (UDF) as the format in the Data window. The issue is getting the .m4v video exported from iMovie to be recognized as an .mp4 by the player. You might try simply changing the extension in the Finder. If you have Toast's Blu-ray plugin you can make a HD video disc burned to DVD media that should play on the Blu-ray player but not on a standard DVD player. The encoding takes a long time, however. Also, if your Blu-ray player has a USB port you can copy the video to a USB flash drive and play it from there. This is a good way to experiment with getting the format recognizable by the player before choosing to burn a disc.


The .m4v video is mpeg-4, which also is way .mp4 is. That's why I think you should be able to get the .m4v to play from a data disc or from a USB stick with your Blu-ray player.
