Did you start with for example an .avi file,then converted it to a dvd file .vob and burnt it to disc? If so it is "finalised" and should play in any dvd player

I have no idea what sought it is but it play on the pc where i burned it , but will not play on my two other machines

Open the burnt disc on the pc and post back what file type it is,i suspect .avi,.xvid etc

If so you need to convert it to a dvd file and burn it to dvd using something like "freemake"

By machines are you meaning other pcs or dvd players

in addition to mart7's advice:

"I have just burned a film onto a dvd"

Tell us what file type the film was and what program you used to burn it to a dvd.

i used win media

it say MP4 VIDEO

  mart7 23:41 26 Jun 14

Thats the file type of the film,so in reality you have copied the file to a disc not actually made a dvd,

It may be the "other machines" dont play mp4files

As asked previous are you referring to other pcs or dvd players

dvd player both panasonic

That will be because the dvd player doesn't play mp4 files,you have to convert the film mp4 using software to a .vob file which when burned to dvd will play in your Panasonic dvd player

A popular free converter which gets mentioned on here is Freemake link below
