    No you need to unpack the .iso, so that you get a Video TS folder, which you can then burn to disc.
    Double clicking the iso should unpack it, and then you can use free software like Burn to create the DVD, or get Toast, which is better still, but not free.

    Use Disk Utility (which is already included with your Mac) to burn the ISO file to a DVD. If it's a movie (in ISO format) it will have to be burned first before you can watch it. The burn process should yield a video file and an audio file.
