Can't view videos on my tv

I can see my homemade videos that I burned from my Samsung S850 digital camera on my pc but not the tv. I burned this disc with Roxio Creator.
I'm using a Phillips dvd player/recorder. The message I get is the video image is not available.
Thanks for your time.
Have a nice day.

I'm not a computer expert but my guess is that the videos are recorded in a computer compatible format and not in a TV compatible format.

do you have Nero?

What is Nero?

RE: Can't view videos on my tv

Nero and Roxio are both Video editing programs, both do about the same, except Roxio can compile video files
(VOB's) without re encoding them.
get out the manual and see what type of video files your DVD players accepts. IE Mpg's or AVI's or hopefully DIVX as these are very easy to compile and fast to burn and are smaller files but with excellent quality.
Outside of DIVX, the best Video editing program I have found is Magix
Good luck, Gary
