I have some pictures that I would like to store on DVD.  I'm going to add some audio.  And I would like a few people to be able to view this occasion.  Different people will have different DVD players.  What would be the best format to use so it the project will be compatible with all DVD palyers?  Thanks,

MPG2, in .vob, make a dvd video of it. or you want them separeted?
if so, it depends on the dvd's, mp3 for audio and jpg for images are the most common recognized formats

if you mean what format of DVD to use,  like DVD-r or DVD+r...

the 2 formats are pretty close as far as compatibility goes these days, because most dvd players play both.  Don't use RW (rewriteable) formats because they aren't as compatible.  

There is a trick you can use on DVD+R discs only called "bitsetting"  that makes them more compatible.   Its a little bit involved so a bit of googling for "bitsetting" is in order.

I personally would go for DVD-r if you aren't using bitsetting, just because a lot of people I know have Pioneer DVD players, which are often DVD-r only.

Cheers
