If I installed a DVD writer in my computer, and then wrote some family holiday film on to a DVD, would I be able to view this using a DVD player with a television?
I have a feeling that all the formats might be different, but it would be very handy if I could do the above!

It depends on your DVD player, you can check what your player will play on click here.
