That program appears to have the same functionality as imgburn.
Creating an iso from that video does not really help you.
You must author the video in to dvd-compatable files or a dvd-iso using, for example, avstodvd
Then you burn that iso to a disk either with that program or imgburn which most on here use and can guide you better if you have issues.

a dvd-iso is an image of the dvd with a video_ts folder and the files inside. Consider the iso in the same way as you consider a zip or a rar archive but without any compression of the files.
iso is an option within imgburn since some people find it easier to burn that or they archive that iso since it is easier to manage that folders and files. But you have to make the right selection since if you burnt that iso as a data disk you just get one file on the dvd and it will not play. When you burn it correctly you simply see the video_ts folder on the dvd disk just like any other dvd-video.
Either your ISO image will have a VIDEO_TS folder in it or you will end up with a VIDEO-TS folder on it's own.
ImgBurn will easily and correctly burn a playable DVD with either.
All you need to worry about is whether your original video file started off as PAL or NTSC video format.
I tried using power iso. When the source is a dvd in the drive it gives an iso that contains a Video_TS and audio_TS folder. But when the source isa a videoTS folder on the harddrive it give a folder with name of film and inside that the video and audioTS folders and this one won't play on standalone
How can I make an an iso of viedo from hard drive that will play on standalone or can I?
Didn't you understand what you read? A regular DVD player won't play a DVD with the VIDEO_TS inside of another folder with the movie name. It will play a DVD with a VIDEO_TS folder inside of which are IFO, BUP, and VOB files. What is it with your fixation with ISOs? Take your MP4 out of the ISO and feed it to AvsToDVD to have it make a real DVD, either in an ISO or with the files inside of a VIDEO_TS folder and use ImgBurn to burn it to disc. I could be wrong but don't believe AvsToDVD will accept an ISO as input.
Those two folders CANNOT be inside another folder.
Stop talking about ISO images and ISO software and listen to what people are telling you.
Use ImgBurn to burn your VIDEO_TS folder to a disc.
what commercial programe would do it?

PowerISO which produces useless files for you that won't play on a DVD player? You're not making much sense. ImgBurn is the best burning program, bar none. If the recent addition of the adware bothers you, get one of the older versions linked on the ImgBurn page. I believe 22.214.171.124 predates the adware.
You obviously picked the correct username!!
Just putting an MP4 inside of a VIDEO_TS folder will not create a valid DVD format to play on your standalone!!!
An ISO is just a container and can have anything in it or nothing more than text files inside it, this does not mean it will play on
a standalone player as a DVD video.
You must convert the MP4 to a DVD VIDEO compliant format and author as such.
Try ConvertXtoDVD as anything more complicated is obviously above you at this point in time.
But if you want to contribute instead of being smug:-
I did realise i cannot do it with an mp4 and have converted it to dvd
The dvd folder i have on my hard drive has been converted with convertxtodvd. It is called my movie and contains videoTS and audioTS folders.
Now, I want to make an iso of that and then burn the iso to a disk to play on a standalone
With any dvd cloner i can burn it but it only plays the menu. it will not play the film.
People mentioned imgburn oldversion. Will that create iso from a hard disk folder as distinct from a disk?
Please note i will not respond to personal insults any more. i only respond to positive people who are here to help. anyone who wants to gloat , i will not waste my time with. i will ignore such people in future. why i want to do it is my business
Thanks for the helpful info
Just drag the VIDEO_TS folder into ImgBurn (I use the add-free 126.96.36.199 version):
Here is a guide:
I will go back to your OP.
Since you do not wish to use imgburn that may have adware, you have Burnaware which also may have adware.
If you have correctly made that iso from video_ts and(optional) audio_ts folders (avstodvd could do that in one step but hey it's you ball) then just use the middle-left option = 'burn iso image'.
If it does not work ie play in a stand-alone then check the disk. I guess you created the iso with a higher level folder named 'whatever' rather than just drag the _ts folder(s) in to the creation program.
My BurnAware is earlier version no adware
Edit: That worked thanks. Made iso and burned and it plays on standalone
My original mistake was not converting the mp4 to VideoTS before making it an iso
