Question Small problem burning DVD's

I used DeVeDe to make an(ISO and Disc structure) and then used K3b to burn them both on separate discs. The problem came when I tried to play them both in 2 home dvd players the sound and video skipped and the audio was out of sync with the video. I tried both of them in my ps3 and a portable DVD player and both worked flawless. The thing is when I used to use windows and burn videos to DVD they played in every machine in the house for years. I believe it has something to do with my settings in one or both of the apps. If anyone use these programs please let me know the settings you use or other programs I could experiment with and use older DVD players no more than 5 years old. Also its not the burn speeds cause I always burn on the slowest speed no matter what I burn.

Make sure the bitrates are not too high, this is probably what is causing old DVD players not to play it, they simply aren't powerful enough to. Make sure the movie complies with the DVD video guidelines:

Also make sure you are using good DVD disks (I mean not the cheapest and crappiest you can find).
