In the beginning I started DVD authoring with Nero Burning Rom (Video). It was very easy, but there are 2024 so many limitations in the programs, so I moved to DvdStyler. The DVD menu styling will need some more background knowledge to handle, if you want a high quality and stylish menu. But the main part, the video encoding, is always better than many commercial programms (Nero Burning Rom, Adobe Premiere Elements, Magix Video, etc.). DvdStyler use the ffmpeg 6.x encoder for encoding the videos to DVD compatible format. You can use single pass or two pass compression for normal or better video quality. You can customize the bitrate for video and audio, format, etc. It is fantastic to use the whole dvd space for maximal quality. Some people prefer a low bitrate for audio and higher values for video. It is possible to use dvdstyler to create dvds with 2-4 hours video material on a DVD-5 (4.3 GB). Most of my tested commercial programs do not want it! They say, it does not match the dvd standard. That could be true, but your 3-4 hour dvds work perfect on different dvd players and pc softwares! So I think, they do not want it for personal recording in high quality!

Hower it is pretty user friendly, i noticed that my movies ar juddering.
Especially when it pans from left to right or down to up or vice versa.
Then its starting to judder or chopping.
SO for me its 5/10 for this program.
Even from NTSC to NTSC is not judder free in panning scenes.

I've been using DVDSTYLER since version 1.8 but I've never done an honest review of it. Although I haven't used it for a long time, I want to highlight how important it is for a dvd author, it's simply (and without exaggeration) the best free DVD authoring program out there, because it has an absurd amount of options. customization (like buttons to set the language, subtitles and everything else), all this in a very simple way. I sincerely hope that the project will continue to BluRay, but I believe that it requires more time, more effort and above all, more investment by crowdfunding, given the magnitude of the project. If you want to give an air of professionalism to your dvd's, in a simple way, DVDSTYLER is by far the best solution, there are options for a more professional creation (like the dvd lab), however, for those who want to give the same air customization to your dvd's, DVDSTYLER is unsurpassed.
