Not necessarily. Both of my current DVD players can play a DVD full of 
MP3 files. One is a Pioneer, and the other is a more 'random' brand 
DVD/DiVX player. The Pioneer does a better job, but both will "play" 
data discs of MP3, WMA, JPEG and MPEG1 amongst other things.

Another possibility would be to convert to MP2 audio and make a minimal 
video stream to go alongside the audio - say, a black screen, and make a 
DVD Video disk using something like transcode. I don't know what the 
bare minimum video bitrate is for DVD, but I know you can get a good few 
hours that way, in a format that would play on any DVD player. I've been 
meaning to try this for ages.
