    In short, video DVD store their video as MPEG-2 video, you transcoded it to another format using another codec (probably H264).
    Also video DVDs need a certain structure like VIDEO_TS folders and those .ifo, .bup and .vob files.

    By simply burning the .mov file to the DVD, you accomplish only burning the .mov file to a DVD.

    You can either use Burn (free) or Toast Titanium to burn a video DVD (playable in those physical DVD players).

    Be sure to select VIDEO DVD in both programs, and not DATA DVD.
