[thelist] Question about creation of homemade DVDs

Originally, I was under the impression that it is possible to edit video digitally with a computer, and then save the video onto a CD so that it could be played in a DVD player. Now, I am confused.

I have a computer that is capable of editing video, and a CD burner. I tried to play a VideoCD on our DVD player without any luck. I then realized that while the player is capable of playing home-made music CD's, it is not as capable of playing video that is just burned onto a CDROM by a computer.

What equipment do I lack? Is this just a matter of converting my video files into a format that DVD players can read and then burning a CD? Or, do I need a DVD burner?

In the past I have spent, more like the companies I worked for, a lot of
money on Adobe Premier and After Effects to do video projects for
multi-media presentations. The control these products gave us was great and
well worth the expense.

But now I send everything out to a local vendor who is able to accept any
digital format and will output any format I need. On top of that, they offer
other services like archiving (think off site backup), animation, editing,
soundtracks, etc... By going to a vendor I have access to the best equipment
with the most up-to-date software available.

I am also able to rent time on any of their equipment so that I can do it
