    hello all,

    I downloaded a clip for a presentation for school, and i burned it onto a cd. I found out that it can only play on my laptop, not on my tv's dvd player... is there any way i can change the format or do something to it so that it can be played on a tv dvd player?

    Thanks, Matt

    You just burned the file to the DVD and didn't convert it to the MPEG-2 format required to play in a DVD player. You can convert and burn it in iDVD. And failing that, in Roxio Toast.
