DVD question

Does a DVD that was burned from an MP4 file play on as many different DVD players as a DVD that was burned from an mpeg-2 file? I thought somebody told me that Mpeg2 is more favored for creating a dvd, as it is playable on more, on a wider range of different machines than MP4. Is there any truth to this? I find it very confusing.. any info on this would be greatly appreciated.

DVD-players don't read regular datadisks.
You really need to create a playable DVD and in that case the video indeed mpeg-2 with muxed or demuxed audio.

Encore by Adobe can encode the video for you if it is not encoded into the right codec yet and create the DVD.

If you put an MP4 file into your editor to make a DVD from it, your editor is going to automatically convert your MP4 file into mpeg-2 to make a playable DVD.
