Many of us still use DVD players to watch movies. DVD players are simpler to use than complex computer software and are ideal for using with TVs in a living room scenario. Unfortunately, video content on the Internet and videos from popular digital cameras are scattered across a variety of formats and complex codecs which standard DVD players don’t support. Converting them means playing around with software and fussing over complicated settings.
Enter DVD Flick, which can quickly convert these video formats into a simple usable video DVD in a couple of steps: First, select a movie or a collection of files from your drive, then select the DVD disc capacity. DVD Flick can either burn a disc directly or save the movie as a disc image that can be written on to a disc later. The software also supports chapter creation, alternate video tracks and subtitles. There’s even some limited menu interface customization possible. Best of all, DVD Flick (www.dvdflick.net) is free—and only a 13MB download.
