DVD Flick aims to be a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Converting and Authoring tool. It can take a number of video files stored on your computer and turn them into a DVD that will play back on your DVD player, Media Center or Home Cinema Set. You can add additional custom audio tracks, subtitles as well as a menu for easier navigation. If it fails try the free AVSTODVD.

* Fixed: Encoding fails when streams other than video or audio are present in the source file.
* Fixed: When using the overscan advanced option, padding was not always a required multiple of 2.

Version 1.2.1.0

* Added: Create chapters on every new video source.
* Added: Custom dialog boxes.
* Added: Automatic detection and fixing of AC3 or MP3 audio delay in AVI files, muxed by very naughty AVI muxers.

Because of a limitation of the MPEG-TS file format it is not easily possible to calculate the duration of a VOB file, thus all calculations which need this are completely wrong and odd results can happen. An "import DVD" feature is still planned for some later version.


Version 1.2.0 RC 4

* Fixed: Combinging files larger than 2 Gb is now also supported.
* Fixed: Disc space meter was not filled if a custom video bitrate was selected.
* Fixed: Video was not encoded at the full requested bitrate, which meant bad quality and finished discs would never be the target size. There should be a significant quality improvement.
* Fixed: Crash when trying to load unsupported filetypes.
* Fixed: FFMPEG's 2-pass encoding log files are now put into the project's destination folder.
* Changed: Dropped IMAPI CDDVD burner detection in favour of parsing WMI PNP strings. Fixes 'Failed to instantiate CDBurn implementation' error as well as make it possible to enumerate recorders on Windows 2000.
* Changed: More progress indication data during video encoding.

* Changed: DVD encoding directory creation is a bit more helpful now.
* Changed: Default subtitle font size is bigger. The preview doesn't quite match what shows on the final product.
* Changed: Newer Cygwin DLLs for the DVDAuthor package. Spumux has had a tiny bit of logic changed.
* Fixed: Chapter times above one hour had time missing.
* Fixed: Subtitle muxing now muxes and muxes to the right stream.

* Fixed: Projects with multiple audio streams and subtitles and titles are now loaded right.


Version 0.9.3

* Added: Drag and drop support. Drag your video files into the title list to add them.
* Added: Application startup logging.
* Changed: A subtitle's language is now also displayed in the title dialog.
* Changed: When a part of the encoding process fails, it no longer continues.
* Fixed: Fonts with duplicate display names are output to the application log and only the first instance of them is loaded.
* Fixed: Caption did not always update to display the current project's filename.
* Fixed: Displayed title lengths were not always 0:00:00 formatted.


Version 0.9.2

* Changed: Auto video bitrate calculation takes the maximum of 9.8 Mbs into account. Total title bitrate will be kept below the 9.8Mb threshold.

* Fixed: Version strings.
* Fixed: Tabstops and minor UI changes.
* Fixed: Kilobits are measured in 1000's, not 1024's.
* Fixed: Multiple DVDs made would have the progress window not update correctly.


Version 0.9.1

I've used the software for years. The great issue is that, currently, it isn't actively being developed or updated. The V2 revision is faster, but retains persistent bugs from prior versions. Specifically, users can create volumes with menus only once per template, after which continued use of the template returns error 53—something that was supposedly addressed years ago in version 1.3.0.2.

I use AVStoDVD, but I needed to import several video clips (MP4) into the same DVD titleset. AVStoDVD only allows one video for each title. I know it has an options to convert all titles into chapters of a single title, but, somehow, it screws the audio. Even if the audio was OK you'd still be limited to several titles with ONE video for each title or ONE title with several videos, but you couldn't have several titles with several videos in each title. DVD Flick does it.

So I tried DVD Flick 1.3.0.7 and, like so many others, I was confronted with serious audio/video sync problems. It's beyond me, how a piece of software with so many version updates continues to have such a serious problem, specialy when it's so well known.

I decided to try the newer DVD Flick v2 1.3.0.9 and, although I haven't tested it enough, it doesn't seems to have the sync issues present in previous versions. So, for the time being, I'm gonna keep it in my tool box.

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.
