There are a couple of ways to put HD on a DVD. None of them will play in a conventional DVD player.
Aside from that, you need a Blu-ray player or PC to play HD video. Most Blu-ray players support the AVCHD format on DVD, which is a subset and slight mutation of Blu-ray. This was created by Sony and Panasonic for DVD camcorders, but you can put your HD videos on AVCHD disc and expect them to play in most BD players and many PCs. The main limitation is that you must use AVC, not MPEG-2 or VC-1, and the bitrate should be below 18Mb/s.
