It will only work in a dvd player if it is capable of playing mpeg
files, which some are not.  Alternatively dvd players may not be able
to play a DVD that is left 'open' rather than finalised.  When you
made the DVD if there was an option to leave it open, so that more
data can be added later then it should not have been left open.

If your player cannot play mpeg files at all then you will have to
make a proper video dvd from the file.  I use DeVeDe to do this.
