Actually you will need to convert your existing movie file ( avi,divx) to a vcd file format( mpeg). Most modern DVD players play vcd files now but you will need to check a dvd compatiblity list. I would recommend www.vcdhelp.com but currently it is down. You can google it and see if you can find a list of dvd players that are available in the market that will play vcd. In order to convert AVI/ DIVX files you will need to use a program like TMPENG. When www.vcdhelp.com comes back online check them out for details on how to do that.
