Default Playing VCD's on a DVD Player

Everytime i burn a homemade movie to a CD, it lets me play the CD on my computer, but it wont let me play it on my DVD player. When i put the CD in my DVD player it tells me there is no sound data, and won't even show the media that is on the disk. I have tried burning the movies to both mpeg and avi files but neither worked. Can someone please help, i have ran out of ideas!!!
(P.S. My DVD player is capable of reading cdr,cdrw, mp3, as well as dvd format disks.)

You must make sure that the video is first converted into mpeg1 then use something like NERO to make a VCD. I have had no issues making VCD's this way and playing them back on my TV with the good ole APEX dvd player..lol.

yes hes right, you must meet 2 conidtions: your dvd player supports VCD/ SVCD. your CD is made with compliance to VCD/ SVCD format. each format has a maximum and minimum range of bitrate for mpeg1 & 2. that link he posted is useful
