Burning Large Files to DVD

I have created some video projects that are larger than will fit on a standard DVD.  I have a DVD burner that can burn to Blu Ray disks, but since many of the people I share with don't have Blu Ray players, I always burn to normal DVDs.  Someone mentioned that there are "dual layer DVD" disks available that will hold my larger projects.  I am running Windows 7, and use either NERO or Cyberlink for authoring disks.  So I've got a couple of  questions:

1.  Can dual layer DVDs play on regular DVD players, or would they need special players?

2.  Can I burn to dual layer DVDs with my Blu Ray burner, or will my normal DVD burner write to a dual layer disk?

3.  What would you recommend I do?

Thanks,

Phil

Usually, dual layer DVD drives in computers will have a little "DL" on the drawer or under the slot. e.g.User generated image
