@#43 Video conversion usually requires a good deal of CPU horsepower, so it's understandable it would take awhile on a notebook.

So final word on this: It didn't work.
Waited hours for no disc at the end of it...

Uninstalling and running a registry cleaner...

Installed and registered with no problems, but when I tried to burn a DVD the program went through the motions but didn't burn anything to the disc at all. Also very heavy on resources, so decided to uninstall and discovered built in uninstaller wouldn't work and crashed my machine. Had manually remove in SAFE MODE and do registry clean. Dodgy software or what!

So, not having had any answers to my question(s) (Post 28) - I installed the software - a long, slow laborious process - and am currently testing it...

I have transfered six movies from various sources (a couple of full movies from youtube, a couple of downloaded .avi movies and a couple of .mp4 movies) into a folder that weighs about 3.6 GB...

I chose the most basic menu option, i.e. the one that was on the screen first and clicked "burn"...

I am now on a screen that says: Creating Titles.../Converting - I'm at 66% in the top bar and 16% in the lower bar AFTER APPROXIMATELY FIVE AND A HALF HOURS - so whatever this software may be? It certainly isn't fast, at least on a low-spec system like my netbook.

In the burning options it wouldn't let me "burn to disc" and is instead "saving as ISO" and is in NTSC (I'm in England and I'm pretty sure we use the PAL format) and it seems to be burning in 16:9 (regardless of the original format of the original video).

For now that's all I can contribute: I'm still probably about 3 hours away from having a DVD that I can test in my player and I have no idea if I'm going to end up with a useable DVD at the end of it all...

I have to say that at the moment this seems like a very cumbersome process to watch movies when I can simply plug a computer into my television or whack a film onto a USB stick and watch it that way...

I will report back with the results of this (very slow, convoluted) attempt to watch "The Secret Of My Success" and "Watership Down" in a few hours and would greatly appreciate any advice that anyone may have on tweaking the settings or using alternatives: I mean, wouldn't it just be easier and faster to convert everything to .avi and burn two or three movies onto a blank CD..?

And I can't even IMAGINE the work involved in creating a photo slideshow...

p.s. thanks for the two thumbs down for my last comment

@#25 Go to the link in the readme, scroll down to iSkysoft DVD Creator on the right, enter your name and email, click Get Keycode.

I'd been looking for a converter that did a decent job of rendering other formats into VOB files (mostly for mom who has an old DVD player hooked up to her TV). Tried a mp4 video taken with a GoPro and it did a great job! Just skipped the menu stuff and went straight to burn (couldn't find settings for the burn speed though).

To Skye-hook,

Use the link given in the read-me text. If I remember correctly: when you get there, you will see, on the right side of their webpage, two fields in which to put your name and email address.

Also, try to use a different browser this time.

Wishing you good luck,

At the top of the page, click the button under the DVD Creator image, enter your name (must contain at least one space) and an email address, click the button there. You should get a pop-up stating your registration has been sent.

In my case by the time I opened the email program the message was there. The number isn't easy to see, being a long alpha-numeric string near the top, not highlighted (the rest of the message has highlighted links to special offers). Copy this number and paste into the registration box and add the email address you used to receive it, click "register" and you should be done. Don't forget to go to the options menu and uncheck the "update" option.

DVD's are still quite useful for when you have to distribute something that is usable by a wide range of people. For example, I have made several DVD's that contain photo slideshows for funeral events. I get the best of all worlds in that I can mix together still photos, any kind of video from VHS tape to HD then lay audio track over any or all of it. Then I create multiple DVD menus so that viewer can play either the slideshow or listen to the audio track of the memorial service.

When everybody leaves after the meal I can have DVD's already burned and ready to hand out to the guests. Everybody has some way of playing a DVD. They can use their PC, MAC, or old fashioned DVD player.

Obviously the quality is not totally HD but I do notice that when the DVD's are inserted into a PC or MAC that the photo slideshows look better than displayed on a regular DVD player.

By the way, technically, all DVDs (that conform to the true DVD standard) must be encoded as MPEG-2. The encoding is not as tight and efficient as MPEG-4 or H.264 AVC but those formats did not exist when DVD was developed.
You may be surprised to know that in the US all of the over-the-air television broadcasting that goes to your TV set is also encoded in MPEG-2.

Updates a huge number of restricted registry settings during the install and then will not run at all on a regular user account once it is installed. Only looks like it will run on an admin account. It isn't an installer so it should never be run on an admin account.

@ #25 - scroll down the Mom's Day gift page to get the code.

I found this software to be glitch on a Windows 7 64 bit platform. I loaded an MP4 video and it took a very long time to load, finally showed a graphic with 100% loaded shown and would not continue beyond. I closed it out with task manager as it was locked. Task Manager showed it as "running" so I do not know how long I was expected to wait. Uninstalled with it's own uninstaller.

I had no problem registering this one (Surprisingly, as I have problems trying to install a lot of programs - especially the ones that send you the registration code via email! Most of the time I never receive the email. And YES, I check my Spam folder everyone!).

I just went to the URL listed in the Readme file, clicked on the Name and email fields (I think that was the 2 fields) and entered my info, just under the DVD Creator picture. I IMMEDIATELY (shockingly) received an email with the registration code. I installed the program and entered the code into the Registration field, and got a confirmation window that popped up in Internet Explorer saying Thank you...

I'm not sure what you are trying but this was one of the easiest ones for me to register. Hope that helps.

Sheila :D

So ... I have a tonne of different software for ripping, burning and converting.... Most of you probably use many of the same stuff.

This isn't a review, more a series of questions based on the description of the software and user comments.

I have a basic home DVD player on a pretty basic home flat screen TV. I can plug USBs into it and have HDMI and a Rasberry Pi etc etc.. I can use Micro HDMI for my Kindle (Fire HD) etc etc..

My basic question is:

Will this software transform a video file (.avi, mp4 etc..) into a file that I can watch on my no-frills DVD player?
If so? Can I burn it to ordinary recordable DVDs (and/or, CDs AND WILL MY DVD PLAYER PLAY IT?

Second question: If I use this software to (what? convert, burn, format...) video files for a DVD will it allow me to make make on-screen menus (that function like a regular, commercial DVD menu) or what?

This sounds like just what I need, but I don't know as much about this stuff as mike does...

Using the registration link brings a flash, then a black screen. I print-screened the flash and it was a suggestion for making a video for Mother's Day. I went to iSkysoft's home page and saw that it was the flash. I searched for Giveaway, which presented a list of topics. I chose "iSkysoft DVD Creator Giveaway for GlarySoft", which sent a registration code to my email address. The offering seems to be for Mac, but the GAOTD DVD Creator registered and works on my Window 7 Pro x64. Strange procedure today for me, but I love iSkysoft stuff.

Installed with no problems on a Desktop windows 8.1 pc.

Email received nigh on instantly with serial number for software.

Program did not install any "questionable" items; I fully checked the best I could on this.

Tested software with a single layer DVD and a Dual Layer DVD by putting some music videos on disc(s) with Menu via software.
Pretty quick in time to burn the disc(s) with no faults - tested burned discs on PC and tv/dvd player.

Simple and easy to use and so far the software has NOT thrown up any faults.
For me it is a "keeper" and personally I would recommend if you just need a quick easy to use DVD creator.

Thank you.

Does this software re-encode MPEG-2 files when making a DVD? It seems so many of them do, which totally messes up the initial quality. It also extends the time to make a DVD.

#1: "Since the WLAN and the USB sticks, i have not created any DVD in the last four years."

Simply put, I can't afford that myself. DVD & Blu-Ray blank discs are still much cheaper on sale than hard drives or USB sticks. ;)

* * *

#3: "From my experience when you convert a modern video of even average quality to a VOB file there is a very noticeable loss of quality and massive increase in file size."

Hopefully my [as usual overlong] post clarified some of the issues. In this case if you start with good quality HD, encode it to DVD spec mpg2 using something like the Mainconcept mpg2 encoder set to VBR [& in NTSC land, depending on the source, using pulldown too], the quality will be pretty much identical to a high quality AVC video file at the same frame size with a bit rate of probably 1.5 or greater. Both AVC & mpg2 record the video they're given as input, recording all the data that's present in those frames. Both will look imperfect if the source video or encoder is poor, if their respective bit rates are set too low [which increases video compression & loss of original data], if a poor quality re-size has been performed. Though you'll only see it offered in software -- not on the discs on store shelves -- mpg2 is included in the Blu-Ray spec & is capable of the same HD quality as AVC & VC1.

That said, one often overlooked factor with re-encoding [transcoding/converting] video, is that the source video has to be decoded 1st so the encoder has something to work with. Many people focus on the encoding end of things, neglecting this critical 1st step, which really deserves as much attention if not more. Decoding video needs to be fast [it helps to be hardware accelerated], & it needs to be at the highest quality possible. When your source is AVC [or VC1, or wmv etc.], that can be pretty hard, since these are mostly designed for final distribution after all editing has been done.

When I've looked at AVC files in a good many editors [& I've tried a bunch], seeing dropped &/or distorted frames on the timeline has been unfortunately common. A lot of times the file format makes a big difference -- since AVC can have little or no timing info this is supplied by the container it's in, e.g. .m2ts works well. The catch is that something has to accurately come up with that timing info when the AVC's placed in the .m2ts [or other]container. This stuff doesn't matter that much to players, though if you pay careful attention you might notice that audio sync with even retail Blu-Ray using AVC is not as close as it is with DVD mpg2. Players just start at the beginning & play whatever comes next until there is no more -- decoding the video for conversion &/or editing you need each frame & its timing to be precise. Myself, rather than a single solution I've found several partial answers -- the software I'll use depends on the source video, & occasionally I'll have to try more than one app or workflow.

If it helps...
There are loads of ways to watch video today, so maybe [hopefully] this will cut through a little bit of the clutter.

1st, the ground rules... Assuming you have a good, high quality source, video quality is a combination of how it was encoded, its bit rate [bandwidth], & its frame size [the amount of pixels]. Every time you re-encode [transcode, convert etc.] video you lose quality -- it's unavoidable. When you watch video a processor, somewhere, has to decode the video, & then additional electronics have to send that decoded video stream to a display. Some encoding types & settings take more processor power & internal bandwidth capacity than others.

If you use a device with an ARM processor or similar, you're very likely bandwidth or bit rate restricted. If you play video with most tablets, cells, Android devices etc. you will max out around 10 or 12 -- a Blu-Ray can be 30-40. Does that matter? Yes, but not as much as many might think. If AVC is re-encoded to AVC with a lower bit rate, and the encoder is set to high quality, *Much* of the time you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference, particularly if you reduce the frame size from 1920x1080 to 1280x720 or 1440x1080, so that less video compression is used while achieving the same reduced bit rate. The hard part is that (re)encoding AVC at higher quality takes longer. As for the display, most display electronics up-size the picture very, very well -- generally much better than software. If it was a still picture you'd see the difference, but at 24-30 pictures a second, not so much.

Many of these devices have what I'll call here helper chips & electronics for decoding [often AVC] video -- mileage varies, so that some devices cannot handle the common post processing features of AVC video, often at higher frame sizes but the frame size ceiling varies. What that all means is that with AVC video there's often a maximum frame size this sort of device can handle without common post processing features, a lower max size with those features turned on, & the smaller size with those features on often looks better. That ties in with reducing the frame size to reduce bit rate in the above paragraph.

Another wrinkle to all this is wireless network bandwidth if you transfer the video via WiFi -- wired network bandwidth can be a factor too, but just less often in a home environ. Many have found it worthwhile or even necessary to add a 2nd router or switch plugged into their main router, using this additional router just to handle video traffic. Many people use powerline adapters to extend their wired network into other parts of the home -- that way a networked media player [stand alone or built into a Blu-Ray player or HDTV] doesn't have to suffer from WiFi's limitations.

Now, what about mpg2? The same video encoded to AVC or mpg2 can be identical but the mpg2 file will be [often much] bigger -- mpg2 is just much less efficient than AVC. Mpg2 video has much lower processor requirements, so it's much faster to encode, & players don't need nearly the same horsepower. The maybe ironic catch is that most Android devices don't have the software installed to decode & play mpg2 -- it doesn't need the hardware assist like AVC. Mpg2 also doesn't work as well on tablets & cells because the larger files can often exceed the 4GB limit for FAT32 disk storage, and that's how most tablets & cells require external flash memory cards to be formatted. It's hard to find a player app that will understand the DVD file arrangement, which uses a series of 1GB files, though playlists can work with a set of 1 or 2 GB mpg2 files.

That said, if you use a media player built into a Blu-Ray player, the DVD circuitry with the mpg2 decoder should hopefully kick in if for example you feed it mpg2 over your network or on a USB stick or drive. If you feed it high bit rate AVC [e.g. typical Blu-Ray bit rates] the same way, it should handle it too. The downsides to using a Blu-Ray player this way include: the built-in Android stuff is usually pretty sluggish & tied to OEM apps for online streaming, it's Much bigger than many media players, and people that put their Blu-Ray collections on hard drives or USB devices can't play any title that uses Cinavia DRM.

Now to DVDs & DVD spec video... There is a definite quality difference between even 1280x720 [720p] vs. DVD spec 720x480 or 720x576. OTOH it's not that noticeable if you're used to lower quality on-line or cable video, even when it's HD. Our cable provider's HD video has a lower bit rate than most every DVD, so a high quality DVD actually looks the same or better. The main penalty is file size -- a DVD equivalent AVC file takes up around 1.5 GB on my tablet's microSD card, where the DVD video would take up almost 4.5GB. OTOH win7's Media Center has all sorts of features to handle a DVD collection or library on HDD, you can record DVD spec but not HD programming, DVD writable discs are cheaper & according to user reports have a much longer lifespan than Blu-Ray, DVD mpg2 can be 4 times [or more] faster to encode than good quality AVC.

Another downside to mpg2 is that you'll probably have to pay for a good mpg2 VBR [Variable Bit Rate] encoder, though you can find apps like Sony's home versions of Vegas & DVDA for as low as free after MIR. There's nothing inherently wrong about constant bit rate [CBR] mpg2, but it makes already large mpg2 files even larger -- VBR [which is used with AVC too BTW] means you don't use a higher bit rate when you don't have to, e.g. during a quiet romantic scene. And IMHO that the biggest problem with DVD apps that use ffmpeg to only encode CBR mpg2.

Finally, as far as authoring DVDs goes... The DVD spec was designed a couple decades ago when you couldn't do this stuff on a PC, so almost nothing about it is PC friendly. You can't go and actually write or edit the instructions on a DVD for the player, but you can use software that goes & does that stuff based on your work using that software's GUI -- another way to put it is that you can write HTML in Notepad directly, or you can use software to make it easier, but with DVDs *you have* to use the software because there simply is no other option. Because of that heavy or large *abstraction layer*, where you enter stuff in an app & then it goes & writes the DVD IFO & VOB files, there's no one way to design an authoring app -- you can find some really big differences in the way you use authoring app A vs. B. So you pick the one you like &/or can afford, and then maybe edit your DVD a bit in PgcEdit if/when you want to add more complicated scripting &/or features.

iSkysoft DVD Creator could be worth the $25 asking price if you liked the way it worked better than a free alternative like DVD Styler. Then again I've gotten a couple dozen e-mails this year from Nero advertising their Platinum version for $35, & I picked up last year's version of Roxio this year for a bit less than $20. Both were [are] better values at those prices, assuming you were OK with their GUIs & workflow, but those were special sales & you'd have to watch for that sort of thing -- you can't just go out today & buy either for that price. And neither have been on GOTD -- iSkysoft DVD Creator is.

Burning a DVD from a 1080i/p source reduces the megapixel count from 2 MP to 1/3 MP. Players may do a decent job of "upscaling" but that's not the same as having the original information. That's why hooking a tablet to your Hi-Def TV looks better than playing a DVD.

I used to make slideshow DVDs of photos taken on trips. The detail was so greatly reduced that I only burn to Blu-ray now. And even that means going from 24 MP to 2 MP.

I already have 8 DVD burners installed and now this will make it 9. I have only used it 2 times in the last 3 years and probably will never use this one. Installed and looks OK to me, I will keep it as an alternative, just in case I might burn something in the future.

OT:
Hey gergn,

I have some bad news and good news for you.

The bad news
We have just discovered a few important bugs in PhraseExpander that prevent it from working properly and could cause loss of data and crashes.

The good news
We have already released a new version v.4.1.1 that solves those issues, and it's available for immediate download.

Even if your free license doesn't include updates, we don't feel like leaving you with faulty software, nor forcing you to buy an upgrade. This is not how we like doing things at PhraseExpander. That wouldn't feel right to us and certainly doesn't feel right to you.

So we decided to offer you this critical update for free: you'll get the update and your PhraseExpander license will continue to work. Fair enough?
How to get your free updateYou can get your free upgrade in two ways:

Download and install the new version from http://www.phraseexpander.com/download/upgrade/
Inside PhraseExpander, click on Help / Check for Updates and follow the instructions to install the updates


All you have to do is install the new version, and your free license will continue to work.
I really hope you are enjoying it.

And of course, if you are experiencing any issue during this operation, feel free to write us and we'll do our best to help.


Enjoy the magic,

I wish this company would use consistent version numbers across all their brand names. I don't know how iSkySoft DVD Creator 3.0.0 compares to Aiseesoft DVD Creator 5.1.16 or Wondershare DVD Creator whatever version it is currently.

The Aiseesoft version I use currently works fine. The menu creation options are simple and limited, only a few templates, but it handles the basics of creating DVDs.

#5 I'm trying anything: Someone once suggested that giveaways at the weekend should be available for more than 24 hours, as many people would be away from their computers over that period. It was a long time ago, but perhaps GOTD have considered the suggestion and decided it's a good idea.

There are a number of these programs which have been given away. Unfortunately, I had to reinstall my OS so I don't have others to compare to.

The last time I had much use for a DVD creator was when I transferred a bunch of VHS recordings to DVD. It's a useful program when you need it, but I don't need it all the time.

The website has a download for the program so as long as you get the registration before the deadline you should be able to reinstall and re-register any time. It doesn't appear to be a Giveawayoftheday only offer.

The video editor is worth grabbing.

@1 Karl "The license agreement comes from Wondershare…"
No wonder: iSkysoft is one of the about 20 alias names used by Wondershare. I don't want to list them this time. Not everybody likes and trusts Wondershare's underlying motivation!

@5 "I'm trying anything"
Prolonged "of the day" argument:
It's a mother's day gift this time!

But this time I myself are in trouble trying this soft:
I don't succeed getting registration code from
http://www.iskysoft.com/events/mothers-day-gift.html.
And this site needs ages for loading.

Having allowed javascript to all co-sites, if I click on "Get Keycode" only the mail line keeps its content, the name line flickers or vanishes (as it likes) and ... nothing happens.
I have tried latest Firefox, Opera and Seamonkey in vain.

Perhaps that's why this time only 7 comments till now!

One essential hint: So far I met only one costly commercial software which never lost synchronization between video and sound after cutting. Therefore please always control synchronization at a lip movement part of your video before burning!

#1 Karl has pretty well covered all the bases regarding this program but I just thought I would expand on his last paragraph.
My preferred method of viewing videos is by using an android tablet connected to the television via an HDMI cable.
From my experience when you convert a modern video of even average quality to a VOB file there is a very noticeable loss of quality and massive increase in file size.
So, although there is nothing wrong with today's download I will be removing it from my computer.

Thanks for giving us this freebie - time limited though. i'm fond of making DVDs from video clips myself, and im using winx DVD author (http://www.winxdvd.com/dvd-author/). will try iSkysoft out later.

Installed and registered without problems on a Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit system. The license agreement comes from Wondershare...

Please keep in mind, that this software loads the xHelpercompact.exe in the "program/common files" (Google! Wondershare HelperCompact) and in appdata/local/iskysoft.

On the page, where you get the key, you can also get the key and download "iSkysoft Video Editor" for free.

A company without name and address.

A modern interface opens, you add your videos and you have the choice of many templates to create the interface. This is done in a simple and understandable way.

Be sure to check the correct standard (NTSC/PAL) and disable the updates.

The program works as it should, it makes a good impression. A simple and quick solution for creating a DVD. A working software with questionable addons...

Since the WLAN and the USB sticks, i have not created any DVD in the last four years.

Uninstalled via reboot.
