Yes. They play the same as the .mpgs did. the problem is that the .mpgs were terrible. shaky video, and so much noise you could barely make out the words. I think it was due to the official software because on a third party client for the mac everything records crystal clear.
I'm still trying to make one of the mac ones into a dvd, but it's taking an extraordanarily long time because:
1. i have to record it on the mac. ~3 hours for both movies
2. trim if nessissarry. ~5-30min altogether
3. use AVC to convert to .mpg because dvdstyler can't work with .movs very well. This has to be done on the significantly slower older Mac because the .movs refuse to work on the pc (which is a really powerful computer that I need for my college courses) ~3 hours altogether
4. copy to USB drive. ~30 min
5. burn to disk ~1 hour
6. burn lightscribe cover ~30 min
That's not including setbacks, of which there was many (iDVD doesn't work, Mac crashes unless you manually set the fans to full blast, etc)
that being said, from start of inish it'll take about 8 hours or so for the entire procedure (minus the lightscribe cover. that can be done in advanced). I'm currently at Step 3 and almost done
