ED - watching question

If i download the AVI MPEG4 version
and throw it straight onto a dvd is it likely to work with my DVD player

just curious as a footnote on the site informs us that it will only work with VLC media player and Mplayer

I know this is a dumb question excuse my ingnorance

well, most DVD players that I know of play only movies in very specific formats… it’s possible that some can handle it, but I doubt it, unless you use some software to encode/ author it to dvd format.
just a guess though, I’m no expert on dvds

You need a conversion software. Unless you have a DVD player that is magically different then the rest of ours.

Or you could buy the real ED dvd!
