Sounds incorrect in many ways.

MP4 is what we call a container. That means you have to check if your dvd, xbox and other things understand the file system and encoding of this dvd.

Frankly the native dvd burning in Windows is a crap shoot. I'd use DVD Flick to make Video DVDs and other titles for Data DVDs.

You recommend dvd flick? If so, where can i find some steps to take them out of the container and get them burned correctly?
Ive burned a lot of cds that way but not dvds. I usually beam my dvd to the tv.

That would be on Google.

All about video encoding, containers and more will not fit in a paragraph here or even this text box so back to school for that. Or google.

Example: DVD Flick Tutorials finds many such articles and I see some YouTubes as well.
Sounds like you have a lot of work to do now.
