Make DVDs from MP4s?
September 20, 2013 5:25 PM   Subscribe

I need DVD authoring software that can create DVDs from individual MP4 clips. Paid or free is A-OK

Something that basically does what Windows DVD maker does, but instead of using WMVs (which is the ONLY thing WinDVD will use) it can write the DVDs using MP4s as the source files.

At the end of the day, I need a DVD that will play in a DVD player that contains scenes/chapters created from individual MP4 files.

It would be nice if I can make a custom menu style that it will remember as well.

Changing the formats (MP4 to WMV) is NOT an option.

Thanks in advance!

P.S. Windows 7 here.

Either use the Chrome add in to pull in YouTube content and save that as an .mp4 or add your own .mp4 files and either join them into one video or list each separately and the free version has a text menu system that is just dandy. Great for restoring multipart postings into the original run time.

Second-ing Freemake Video Converter. Lots of options and very user friendly.

Older program, but DVD Flick works great, is free, and can do menus. I've been using it for years.

I think you're looking at a two-step process.

I use an outdated version of TMPEGEncoder, because the place I work at bought it years ago and it still works pretty damn well. Then you send it to IMGBurn, because it's free and awesome.

ConvertXToDVD is quite useful. Worth the price (or the pirating).
