However, one downfall to using this method, is that not all the discs you produce will be compatible with every DVD player there is out there.

Once you realize you need to produce more than about 300 discs, you will want to consider Replication.  This method is more effective when you're producing large quantities of discs, not to mention that by using replication, you will be guaranteed that your discs will work on any DVD player.  That's because replication uses a glass master process at a special facility.  Replication is the highest-quality and most reliable method for producing DVDs, plus the fact that it's really the only method of adding copy protection to your DVDs.  But in most cases it's just impractical since the price per disc is so high.
