It sounds like you have made an SVCD instead of a VCD. Some DVD players have problems playing SVCDs. Read for more info on the differences betwen SVCDs and VCDs.

You need to make a VCD. You can encode your movie to the following standards to ensure it is a VCD:

PAL Video: 1150 kbit/sec MPEG-1 352 x 288 pixels 25 frames/second

Audio: 224 kbit/sec MPEG-1 Layer2

NTSC Video: 1150 kbit/sec MPEG-1 352 x 240 pixels 29,97 frames/second 23,976 frames/second NTSC Film

Audio: 224 kbit/sec MPEG-1 Layer2
