I hope you know keyboards have a period key. But besides that, have you installed the right drivers for your correct architecture and dvd drive?

Try using windows media player/center instead of stand alone player. Unless those are totally two different things. Becuase i dont know what stand alone player is

Are you saying you tried to burn a video but it does not work on a DVD player? If so I can tell you how to fix it.
