I have tried AVStoDVD and DVD Flick. AVStoDVD is definitely the one you need. DVD Flick failed to sync the video and audio but no problem for AVStoDVD. DVD Flick just stopped playing video for 2 movies (audio continued to play just fine but video froze). No problem for AVStoDVD. DVD Flick is easier to use, that's true, but once you get the hang of it AVStoDVD is really the better program.

I too have these strange out of sync issues, strange because it only happens with some files and not others and regardless of settings in DVDFlick.

I have not tried the newer version, as i hate replacing a working (well, almost) program with another, that may be worse.

I still remember when the program S.U.P.E.R. worked, and a new version almost killed my PC, leaving me no possible way to reinstall the older version again.


I found XmediaRecode instead.

Overall I am happy with this program. However, one flaw that I have noticed often is that the audio is slightly out of sync with the video, and when there is a close-up of someone speaking that spoils it. Tried the later 1309 Beta version, and for some reason the video plays ok on the computer but when burned to dvd it freezes up right from the beginning, so went back to the earlier version and the out-of-sync audio until I can find something better.

Not too bad for free, however had too many problems with the .avi files not completely converting or the audio coming out slow and garbled half way through the video. AVStoDVD much better.

Afa quality, you can improve on default settings via Project Settings => Video. Change Normal to Best. Also press Advanced Button and change DC precision from default 8 to 10. If the output bit rate is going to average under 5000 kbit then you may be better off using another tool or increasing the output size to allow more bits.

It's a good program to have in the toolbox. A good implementation that's still useful today. Unfortunately it looks like 1307 is the last version.

I was looking to take episodes and make them into a dvd disk for storage. AVI2DVD would not recognize that my audio track was in the .avi so I kept looking. I used DVD flick to take 4 avi episodes, make a basic menu and turn into dvd compliant files that I then checked, then burned. They look very good on my 1080P projection screen with upconverting dvd player.

I felt compelled to get a user name, login, and write this review. I'm very grateful. I did not have any problems with popups or whatever.

This is basic but it does a good job of encoding. I used to use DVDFAB but can find the license. The output quality seems similar.

Two things would be nice 1) be able to clip the .avi tracks to cut off the intro/credits 2) able to make your own menu screen picture.

Both probably have workarounds that I'll figure out sometime. Sure I can edit the clips somehow before I import them. Probably can figure out how to make my own menu template.

DVD Flick - simply a wonderful tool.
Easily converts any video file for burning to DVD.

However for some there is a problem with version 1.3.0.7 -
it will not recognize .FLV files
which unfortunately is the most common video file format on the web.
(note: for some - v 1.3.0.7 does seem to work with flv)

The immediate previous version 1.3.0.6 works just fine with flv files.

see this thread and recommendation on the DVD Flick forum:

http://www.dvdflick.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3787

Obviously depending on the source DVD Flick can produce stunningly good DVDs -
for example I believe DVD Flick understands and produces anamorphic DVD files.
note: regular DVD-Video (NTSC) full resolution is just 720x480 -
so for downloading higher resolution videos (like 1080p or 720p)
does not do any harm - but can be overkill -
for most 480P video is adequate.

Straightforward and easy to use. Would be tremendously more useful if it supported merging video files during edit. As it is, there is a limit to the number of titles one can import into a project. If you tend to take 30-second videos, then you will fill up a project with only about 30 minutes of video, which is only half of a DVD. If it were possible to merge titles (video files), then one could make room for adding more titles to the same DVD.

This thing will replace all kind of system files in your windows folder with old unstable crap. I was luck enough to try it out in a virtual machine, I have never had a BSOD in the last couple of years, since installing this garbage I've had 3 in 2 weeks.
This tool is worse than chicken flu !

It's great as an alternative to paid "all in one convert anything" type programs. It's basically a free open source clone of Nero or any other easy conversion solution. It lacks any settings or tweaking but works fine for a simple easy one click solution. The encoder used FFMPEG is of ok quality though there are better free ones. When compared to Nero or ConvertXtoDVD it's just fine however don't expect the quality or control of tools like TheFilmMachine or AVI2DVD. I like the software because it's free compared to paying for tools.

In order to get subtitles into a MKV-to-DVD conversion it takes one small extra step. Open the MKV file in MKVExtractGui and extract the subtitle you need. All that needs to be done is add that subtitle file to your project. Although not all subtitle formats are supported, it's not a show stopper.

Seems great but it doesn't recognize subtitles in MKV files. Unfortunately that makes it useless for me.

I had been using DVDauthorGUI in the past to author home videos. DVDauthorGUI is more complicated to use than DVD Flick. DVDAutorGUI requires mpeg elementary streams as input files to author a DVD. DVD flick does great job with the support of multiple file types (mpeg, avi, etc) within the same dvd, subtitle support, automated menu support, and also very easy to use. It is as simple as Nero, but does better job than Nero. It had all the freeware built in to encode, subtitle, menu build, chapter build, author, and burn. I would rate this product better than any other freeware available online.

Even though this product does far better than any other freeware, I would like to see following features in the future releases of DVD Flick:
1) Better flexibility with chapter building rather than build chapters based on fixed time.
2) Better flexibility with menu building related to length of title, linking the chapters with menu items, ability to add custom background picture, ability to add custom background songs, etc.
3) If possible, I would like to see a feature to automatically extract datecode/timecode from avi files of MiniDV tapes, and add them as subtitles using a background freeware tool like "DV Datecode".

"It's a great user-friendly functional piece of software and the "authoring" side of it is just an added bonus"

OTOH the DVD Flick site says that it's "a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Authoring tool".

My own opinion is that the program is very good value for the price - but it does have some problems with audio sync and some of the functionality is obscure e.g. the option to copy compliant MPEG-2 files and the constant problem in forcing the AR I want (it requires two settings).

I wish it was possible to import a chapter list - but it's still beats Nero by a mile in elegance and size.

To previous comment:

This tool is a video converter, it converts nearly most video formats into DVD format. It's a great user-friendly functional piece of software and the "authoring" side of it is just an added bonus, for quick-and-dirty menus. It is NOT a "DVD Authoring" program. The authoring is just a barebones added functionality. It's unfair to criticize it for its limited menu-making abilities, IMO. For more manual control over your menus, I suggest DVD Styler.

"Authoring" just means that the output is ready to be burnt to DVD, and that DVD can be played in your DVD player. Don't confuse it with "menu-making" applications.

Maybe this is the worst DVD authoring tool I've seen so far.
You have just a few template you cannot customize at all: these templates
manage subtitles and audio tracks you supply, but the way it does it is
hard-coded.
Also the strings displayed on the menu are hard-coded.
The support for chapters is nearly absent.
The only pro is that you don't have to pay for it, but
the value you have with this tool is equal to the sum
you paid for.

Update comments by Spudboy is appreciated.

Yes, it appears that the latest version 1.3.0.7 does work fine for many on .flv files.

However it just will not on my PC
- I tried re-installing DVDF, and even tried UNinstalling my K-Lite Codec pack on the advice over at the DVD Flick Forums -
but v 1.3.0.7 still will not recognize .flv files on my PC
(yet version 1.3.0.6 works just fine).

The previous comment by UnknownVT stated that version 1.3.0.7 "does not seem to recognize the Flash Video file (.flv) format", however I tried some .flv videos and it worked fine.

I just wanted to let everyone know.

Thanks.

DVD Flick is a really good and easy to use tool for converting those video clips to DVD format, to use on a home DVD player.

BUT one warning - the lastest version 1.3.07 (as of June/2009) - does not seem to recognize the Flash Video file (.flv) format - which is one of the most prevalent formats out there on the Web.

I do realize one can always convert the .flv files to something that DVD Flick 1.3.0.7 will recognize -

BUT the immediate previous version - 1.3.0.6 -
did recognize and converted .flv files just fine to DVD format.

Either this is a bug, or it's a major backwards step.

I suggest using the slightly older 1.3.0.6 in the meantime.

Until two years ago I had been using the crap Roxio Creator/MyDVD Combo that came with my Dell Dimension 9150. (I concluded that Sony and Dell gave it away because no sane person would want to buy it...) Then I purchased WinAVI VideoConverter Version 1.7 and, despite it getting some bad press, I never had any big problems and was quite pleased with it/thought it value for money. It was fast and authored video was satisfactory.

About three months ago I discovered and downloaded DVD Flick Version 1.306.0.734. Wow! It's hard to believe it's free. Unless you are a professional - which I'm not, you couldn't want anything better. Although it's about 40% slower than the WinAVI I was using, the speed is still good, the authored video is much better, and it has many additional features. I compared end results with DVD burns done by a relative with Nero and couldn't see a differnce. If the following problems could be fixed it would be perfect:

1. At startup and when running it randomly accesses the floppy drive. (Yes, I paid extra to have a floppy drive in my PC!) And DVD flick still randomly accesses the FDD after it is closed until I reboot the PC.
2. Drains the PC even though it has a 2.8GHZ CPU, FSB of 800 Mhz and 2GB RAM.(Other applications will hardly start when it's running.)

Still, a very big thanks to the people who made it.

Excellent Freeware that it works even in Vista 64-Bit ... does exactly what it says and More. It is Fast and Dummy-Proof. Folks, I fail to see how anyone can give DVD Flick anything but a 10 in Functionality or Overall Score when it clearly does everything right ... each & every time ... AND for FREE! MANY THANKS to the Author ... Keep UP the Great Work!

There are two things I'd like changed about this program:

Move the checkbox for using a DVD-compliant mpeg2 (to avoid reencoding) to the front of the interface instead of hiding it three layers deep behind an "Advanced" button (where it can be overlooked).

Add a preview window and allow the user to set brightness, contrast, gamma, hue and saturation levels before authoring. That way I wouldn't have to create my DVD-compliant mpeg2 file in another program.

Otherwise, this app is terrific.
