Brasero supports mp4 formats? I am not sure. But if you want "mad" then you need install

dnf -y install libmad

Remember install rpmfusion...

You want to create a video DVD that can be played by any hardware DVD player, you'll probably first need to transcode the files to DVD compatible MPEG-2 with MP2, AC-3 or PCM Audio, then master a DVD image and burn it using the appropriate DVD-video compatible UDF filesystem.

You can use Bombono, or MEncoder for transcoding.

To author/master your Video DVD, you can use DeVeDe (sudo dnf info devede), or dvdstyler, or dvdauthor ( )

Then use brasero to finally burn the dvd...

(Those packages mentioned here are part of rpmfusion )
