Hi all:
I've gotten my first video rendered as an MP4 and all of that went just fine. Now I'm trying to burn that to a DVD.But out of 4 or 5 programs/apps that I've tried to do this with, none of them work. They either don't recognize the mp4 - you know, when you have the file in a folder and you go to it and the program acts as if it's not there at all.

Is it just a case of re-rendering the movie in another format. And if so, then what would that be?
I'm using Win 10.

Thanks for replies

I use DVDFlick http://www.dvdflick.net/ it works for me - and its free - donations optional if you like it.

Should work with many formats but I use mp4 and thats fine.

Cyberlink's Power 2 Go - of course ! The free version is enough. .

Power2Go is my choice, too, but you can burn a DVD/BR within PD. Is there a reason you want to outside PD? HP Envy Phoenix/4thGen i7-4770(4@3.4GHz~turbo>3.9)/Nvidia GTX 960(4GB)/16GB DDR3/7,200rpm/w10x64---

As Barry inferred, I guess you are burning it outside PowerDirector because you want the file on a data disc, rather than a DVD video, right?

Because if you burn an MP4 to a DVD for playback on a standalone player, the video quality will be reduced. DVD video format is MPEG-2.

Try Power2Go Essentials, free download: https://www.cyberlink.com/downloads/trials/power2go-platinum/download_en_AU.html?affid=2581_1269_540

Question;
Why would installing Power2go want to remove WaveEditor and replace it with a trial version of (I believe it was) AudioDirector?
That doesn't make any sense, so I cancelled that part of the install. .
