DVD authoring tools
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.Credit: Images by Jack Wallen for TechRepublic

Are there only picture freaks within techrepublic?
This "blog" is slow, of low information and unreadable.
Compare this to a Pantomime in a pedestrian area. He needs 5 minutes to explain you something you can tell within a sentence.
And even for a tablet
I'm sticking to my tried and true favorite ConvertXtoDVD. As for this "blog", Slide-shows are NOT "blogs" they are PHOTO ALBUMS. I come here to Read an ARTICLE, not view someone's family pictures!
ugh. slideshow type presentations are so over-used. Besides that, devede is by far the one of the easiest dvd creation software I've ever used.
DVD Flick has another feature in the installation process....Malware. MS defender killed the install after finding 2 bad guys in it.
You need to click on "See all of Jack's content" and then click on the title, again, from a list. That takes you to:http://www.techrepublic.com/blog/five-apps/five-free-dvd-authoring-tools/
Fully agree with the undersigned. Tech Republic publishing a site without testing it first? Unbelievable!!!
Like other information in this new format. Can not view past the landing screen the controls do not advance to the next screen
@PCcritic Thank you kindly. I would probably have hunted around for 30 minutes and then given up were it not for your assistance. Tech Republic, this new format is a joke. You really need to make the links more intuitive. Is it really so difficult for a website that reviews digital technology and the IT market to make its site easier to navigate?
@PCcritic Thank you, deeply appreciated.
Tech Republic, you know better than to not do this yourself. Shame, Shame, Shame.
@PCcritic Thanks for the link. The chopped-up version is idiotic.
