It's a great program, from what I've already tested. However, the installation is difficult and the license could be lifelong, as on other giveaway sites.

Just like Jim Jones, Bruce Giles, Craig, and Yvonne, i disabled my anti-virus and anti-malware and still nothing. I can't DELETE setup.gcd because Windows tells me it's in use in setup.exe!! But there's no sign of setup.exe, not even in Task Manager. Great job, Leawo. Does your software work this well, too?

humanist7, If you ask a license, then you will get a mail with the code AND a link to download the software.
I did use that software and it worked fine.

In answer to me, sort of, but not really. It will accept them and play them BUT it shows the left top corner of the video only, about 1/4 of the image.

No idea what this is about - untested, buggy code?

I also was unable to install from GAOTD package and did not want to turn off antivirus, so I downloaded the "Prof. Media" installation package from the Leawo website. Then I was able to successfully install the app and activate the DVD Creator module with the Giveaway code.

A high quality video DVD can look OK on a HDTV, & even look acceptable on a 4k TV, though it's critical that the mpg2 video be high quality. Most retail video DVDs today do not have that high quality level -- they do that on purpose to discourage copying while encouraging Blu-ray disc sales -- so lots of people [most?] think that video DVDs are solely an artifact of the past. That's not to say that video DVDs will ever look as good as Blu-rays at 1080p, but the cost in time & money is a lot less, assuming that you want to put video on an optical disc that will play in a stand-alone player. While discs do take up physical storage space, they're still one of the cheapest forms of storage.

That said, depending on the hardware you use to play video, there are all sorts of ways you can put video on a data DVD, or burn a DVD to Blu-ray video spec, to overcome the limits of video DVD's 720 x 480 or 720 x 576 non-square pixel video. However you likely won't have anything like DVD menus, if/when that's important to you, and for some projects those menus can be important.

Some authoring apps use code that was developed, often in-house, based on licensed tech, and some don't. Those that did, e.g. DVD Architect, may let you do more, & may have better player compatibility, though compatibility is much less an issue today than it was years ago. Most other DVD authoring apps use the open source DVD Author code -- Leawo's DVD Creator falls into this class -- which has the benefit that it's still actively developed... most DVD authoring software that isn't based on DVD Author uses sometimes Very old code that might have compatibility issues with current &/or future versions of Windows etc.

Because the way that video DVDs work is so complicated, video DVD authoring software has a high abstraction level -- what you do with the GUI has little to do with what actually goes on in the software behind the scenes. Because of that abstraction, the way that you work with DVD authoring software often varies greatly, so if you're not comfortable with the way one app works, there are plenty that work very differently. At the same time, once you learn one authoring app, many, perhaps most people stay with it to avoid another learning curve. Because of that, being able to create Blu-ray video discs with the same software, should you decide to in the future, is a definite plus, and you can do this with Leawo's DVD Creator if/when you buy that option.

The biggest limitations you'll encounter with Leawo's DVD Creator [and Nero & similar apps] is a lack of complete creative control. More sophisticated DVD authoring software will let you time chapter points precisely, even including needed I frames exactly where they're needed during mpg2 encoding. They'll also let you create menus entirely from scratch, rather than using cookie cutter templates. They'll let you do intro &/or outro videos that play when you click a button before whatever title or menu is played, and let you create & control programming logic.

However all of that comes with a steep learning curve [you could really spend years, & not know it all], which is probably not worth pursuing nowadays, since there's a much more limited market & interest in fancy video DVD menus & features. Blu-ray video discs, being more modern, are in some ways easier, but you won't do state of the art menus &/or features using Java, because the necessary software is unaffordable for the average individual. With Blu-ray you could do all the learning to master DVD-type menus, spend days creating those menus, and when you were done still not have something comparable to a pro or retail disc, so again it's probably not worth it to you.

You can find a listing of DVD authoring apps at videohelp[.]com/software/sections/authoring-dvd . You can also get tsMuxeR there, which can help with Blu-rays, including stuff like putting Blu-ray on a DVD disc or putting DVD video on Blu-ray [it's actually part of the spec]. PgcEdit can help modify a DVD that you've created, when the app you used didn't include a needed/wanted feature.

Roy,

Apples & Oranges...
"Convert and burn any video type to Blu-ray or AVCHD structure to play on any Blu-ray player."
videohelp[.]com/software/ConvertXtoHD

"- Burn Blu-rays, AVCHD DVDs and ISO files - Compatible with any Blu-ray player"
vso-software[.]fr/products/convert-x-to-hd/?ap=avangate&aid=675

When talking about the Blu-ray video disc format, I think most people & software companies talk about AVCHD & Blu-ray formats interchangeably, as they are virtually identical, & even many players will misidentify Blu-ray as AVCHD if you burned it yourself. At any rate, it competes with Leawo's Blu-ray Creator, which is not on GOTD today.

The program did not install. After clicking on setup, all I got was the GOTD window directing me to the site where I could get the license. No program was installed. Tried it 3 times with the same result. Where is the program?

Getting the 'Access violation at address 004038BA in module 'setup.exe'. Read of address 13C80A6D

If this is because I have to disable my antivirus program, no go. There's no reason I should have to do this in the 21st century.

I'll try again later.

I wonder if you are running a 32 bit or a 64 bit system. This to my opinion might cause the error.

Who needs a DVD Creator when BluRay is in fashion.
And DVD and Disc Player are slowly going out of fashion.
I don't think DVD will die out so quickly but people don't have enough of material to make a DVD.

Endomondo, the burning of holiday films on a DVD is happening more and more

Reply   |   Comment by Hadrianus  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-8)

Hadrianus, maybe but having smart TV's or modern DVD players that handle MP4 video files directly is becomming more common... I servio my vdeo and audio and photos from my laptop to my smart TV all the time... far less environmentally damaging than adding to the plastic mountain our societies generate for items that may be used only once or twice.

if you have a DVD player that will play .mp4 or xvid or divx AVI files stored on a DVD data disc then you can get far better quality AND quantity per disc using the Mpeg4 based files than the old obsolete but hsnging in there Mpeg2 DVD video format.

Hadrianus, i'll take your words. But there is something already prevalent about Giveaway products is that it tends to unregister itself after few years. That i think is not sufficient and although i am not asking much. But you rarely come across holiday videos and also you happen to have this software. Its super rare, its of no use. I am quite already familiar about the products put up in this Giveaway.

Brian, are you sure this particular module given away today create Blu-ray discs and it's not a different module like "Leawo Blu-ray Creator" that this giveaway license does not cover as their overview page and tech specs do not make any mention of creating/authoring Blu-ray video discs, just DVD Video discs.

Brian, ....create Blu-ray discs...Are you sure?

Reply   |   Comment by Hadrianus  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-7)

Endomondo,

"Who needs a DVD Creator when BluRay is in fashion. "

Can't buy Blu-ray burners for $10-$15 like you can DVD burners, & single layer DVD blank discs are cheaper too, & probably last longer [longevity is often reported as a problem with BD discs]. NOT saying video DVDs are all around superior -- just that they have their pros.

"DVD and Disc Player are slowly going out of fashion."

Yes, DVDs are not as popular as they were during their peak some years back, but they still sell them at all sorts of retailers so there must be demand. Blu-ray OTOH never became as popular as video DVDs, but their decline probably won't start until 4k Blu-ray players & discs drop in price a bit more. That said, there's still no way to create a 4k Blu-ray disc yourself, & copying them to HDD is in its infancy, so like DVDs, Blu-ray discs will likely be around for a while.

TK,

"... having smart TV's or modern DVD players that handle MP4 video files directly is becomming more common"

If anything there are too many ways to get video on the screen nowadays. :) All the details of what does what, & how, get confusing. Don't necessarily agree with them, but I can see how some people might be tech adverse, sticking with the DVD format they've known for years.

"if you have a DVD player that will play .mp4 or xvid or divx AVI files stored on a DVD data disc then you can get far better quality AND quantity per disc using the Mpeg4 based files than the old obsolete but hsnging in there Mpeg2 DVD video format."

FWIW, mpg2 got a 2nd life as a Blu-ray format because it takes so much less horsepower to encode than AVC. Quality at 1080p is actually pretty close to AVC, but AVC can get the same quality with much smaller files if you push it reducing bit rate. What makes mpg2 hardest to live with though IMHO is that it's not included in most all Android devices -- they're set up for AVC -- and those can't always easily access the Play store to get VLC etc.

If you've got AVC video OTOH I like to put it into Blu-ray format with tsMuxeR... Lots of players [hard & software] will play either the Blu-ray format or the .m2ts video file itself, so there are loads of compatible options for playback. I find that Leawo's free Blu-ray player does quite well too.

I never understand why these companies only giveaway windows versions when they have other versions like mac and linux

Reply   |   Comment by Damo  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-12)

Damo, simply because the Give Away versions are only introductory, giving the user a "taste" of their products hence showcasing the company and more of its products.

Reply   |   Comment by aba  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (-1)

Damo, it adds complications to the giveaway... plus technically although rarely there are mac zip bundles linked to directly in the description DIV this channel is maketed as the Windows giveawayoftheday.com audience and they have not felt the demand to create specific Mac or linux channels either due to the lack of interest from retailers or due to there being so little commercial software for linux in the first place and different types of linux distributions and no universal installation that will work on all types of linux distros and protect the giveawayofthe days chronological integrity. There are Android and iPhone channels but that only works because they each have standardized app delivery systems in place.

Reply   |   Comment by TK  –  6 months ago  –  Did you find this comment useful? yes | no (+8)

Damo, if I may pop in to explain, I believe it is mainly because Macs make up about 10% of the market usage/share, and Linux Distros make up only about half of that much... I am sorry you feel ignored though - perhaps check the GiveawayOfTheDay developers' websites - they may offer a Mac or Linux version directly.
