    movies burned on my Imac wont play on a dvd player
    I took video on my Canon 7d. I downloaded it to my Imac and then right clicked and burned a dvd. Iw ill play on my mac and on the dell at work but not the dvd player.

    It is a MOV file.

    do I need to convert it or place it in Imovie before burning?

    any help would be appreciated.

    Yes you do

    The general rule is that if you can play the movie in Quicktime it will readily convert to MPEG -which is what DVDs use

    You will need the open source Burn, one of its options is to create a DVD movie disc

    To put this another way: what you burned is a DATA dvd. What you WANT to do is burn a MOVIE dvd. They are different. Take louishen's advice and try Burn.
