I've succesfully burned on DVD+R's (various brands) which play very well on my stand alone Sony DVD player, but when I try to use DVD+RW (Sony or Fuji) I get freezing during play back. More often towards the end of the video. Is this just a matter of bad media?

It could be, but not likely. DVD-RW and DVD+RW are far, far less compatible with DVD-Video players than the write-once counterparts.

I experience this myself from time to time.

They are also MUCH more touchy after they've been erased and re-used. The first time recording is generally fine, after that, forget it.

I tend to just use 35 cent discs if it's a throw-away for something temp, and viewing on a DVD player is of utmost importance. Less hassle, and I can afford to throw away a few cents here and there.
