Camcorder: Video To DVD Problems

I doubt if the computer matters, but I’ll include it anyway.
iMac (Retina 4K, 21.5-inch, 2017)
3 GHz Intel Core i5
8 GB 2400 MHz DDR4
macOS High Sierra
Version 10.13.06

Camcorder: Panasonic HC-V770 (2018 HD)
Last week I purchased Wondershare Filmora 9 Video Editor.
Everything seems to be working fine. I hook the camera directly up to my Mac, & save any videos I'm interested in.
I'm able to edit, make GIFs, change speeds, add text, etc.
For YouTube, I edit the video, save it to MP4, & upload it. Works great.

The problem arises when I try to burn a DVD.
I ‘was able’ to do this in the past.
I had a Panasonic dmr-es20 home DVD player/recorder. I’d hook my camcorder, (at that time, an older non-HD Panasonic) directly to the DVD recorder, record the sections of the video I wanted, then finalize the disc. (those discs still play on the 2 units that I'll mention later)

But the Panasonic recorder has since died, so that's no longer an option.
Since iMacs no longer have a CD/DVD drive, earlier this year, I purchased an LG slim portable DVD writer. (Model SP80NB80)
I know the unit is working, because earlier this year, I used it to install TurboTax.

I have the YouTube video shown above, saved on my Mac. I drag it into the video editor, & click export.
At that time, the following pop-up window appears.

As you see, there’s 14 formats available. I’ve exported the video in MP-4 - MOV - MPEG2 - & AVI & burned each one to DVD using the LG writer.

The MP4 & MOV versions playback flawlessly on the LG, the MPEG 2 plays with pixelation, & the AVI won’t play at all.

But when I try to play it in either of the following 2 devices, the message is the same. Unsupported Disc

Panasonic DVD Player:

Sony DVP-CX995V: About 11 years old.

My guess is that it has something to do with finalizing the disc, which I did back when I used the Panasonic DVD recorder.
I have no idea if the LG writer is capable of doing that or something similar, or how to go about it, if it was ?
Or maybe I'm doing something else wrong ?

Welcome to the digital world, finally (because what you were doing with connecting your camcorder to a standalone DVD burner is not how it is normally done).

If you want to do a proper DVD-Video, you need to author DVD-Video, which is a bunch of files and a directory structure of a specific format, not just a single file burned onto a disc. The export screenshot that you posted has DVD menuitem on the top right, what does it do?

My way of going about it may seem dated to you, but it worked.

All I see on the top right, is the bottom of the video window. Here’s a full screenshot without the export format pop-up.

I figured it out. Using Wondershare Filmora 9 & the LG portable DVD writer, I was able to burn DVD-RAM.
They play perfectly on all the units I wanted them to.

DVD-RAM, wow! Glad you figured it out.
