It's the quality of the DVD blanks you use, not the authoring program, that assures playback in the most machines. Most Windows computers will play authored DVDs except very old ones that haven't had their software updated in a very long time. I have not encountered one of those in years.

All modern stand-alone DVD players should play your DVDs, most BluRay players as well but those can have firmware issues that the user may need to update before they can watch authored discs.

Use quality DVD blanks (Taiyo Yuden, Fuji, etc) and there should be no problems.
