One of the best software programs to convert video files to DVD is the commercial Convert X To DVD which we introduced during our Christmas Giveaway last year. The program is super easy to use and can create DVDs out of many different video formats including avi, flv and mpg.
ZC DVD Creator Platinum can turn video files into DVDs in three steps. It begins with the selection of the video files from the local hard drive. The program will show them in a preview and notify the user about the remaining free space on the DVD.
A design template for the DVD can then be selected and customized in step 2 of the process. Several backgrounds and frames are available in the program.
The tv system (NTSC or PAL), aspect ratio, DVD label and destination (hard drive or DVD recorder) can be selected in the third and final step. The DVD creator will then convert the video files into DVD format.
ZC DVD Creator Platinum is currently offered as a free full version at the German Winload website. It has to be noted that an earlier version of the software is offered as a free version, not the latest version. This does not reduce the quality of the free version in any way though. This version is multi-lingual.
All that it takes to get a registration code for the DVD creation software is to sign up for the newsletter at the Winload website. Here is a quick walkthrough for non-German speaking readers:
1. Open the Winload website in your web browser.
