There IS a standard codec but that has nothing to do with it. Store bought DVDs are pressed, not burned. They are neither DVD-R nor DVD+R. All DVD players are made to recognize the pressed DVD but not all can recognize a DVD-R or DVD+R (in short, the problem is not the codec but the medium). You can get DVDs pressed through a replicator but it will cost you a good chunk of change. That said, more DVD players will recognize DVD-Rs than DVD+Rs so make sure you are using those and if your client still has a problem with it, why not spring for a $25 DVD player at Wal Mart and give it to your client?
