Most modern DVD players will accept DVDs that do not have the 
traditional VIDEO_TS directory, and will either present an on-screen 
file browser or search the disk and build a sequential play-list 
containing all of the recognized media files (mpg, avi, mp3, etc.).  I 
use nuvexport to convert shows to VCD (mpg) format and then burn them 
to DVD-R or DVD-RW so I can take them with me.  In this format, a 
single DVD disk holds about 6 or 7 hours of video.
