There are plenty of reasons you might want/need to put together a DVD. Sure, you might want to put together that family DVD to send to everyone at Christmas time - but there are also training videos, marketing materials, and even products. But without the right software, creating those DVDs would be an exercise in futility. For those on a tight-as-nails budget, I have found five free DVD authoring tools that are not only spot on for your spending limit, they are also fairly easy to use.

But will any of them meet your specific needs? Let's dive into the world of DVD authoring and find out. Remember, these aren't editors; you'll need your completed clips ready to use. If you need a free video editor, look no further than OpenShot. With your video in hand, let's author some DVDs.
