Video DVD Maker Free enables you to capture video from a TV tuner, a web camera, a DV camcorder, or any other video device. You can save the captured data as an uncompressed AVI file, or use one of the compression methods to save it in the format you want.
In addition to the video devices, you can import video from video files in different formats, including AVI, DIVX, XVID, MP4, MPG, WMV, ASF, to name a few. To gain this ability, you must first install the appropriate codec, which you can download, for example, from http://www.free-codecs.com/Codec_Packs.htm
Video rendering is accurate and blazingly fast. As soon as the project is ready, you can burn its DVD image onto a CD or DVD disk. The DVD production is configurable with such options as specifying the project name, PAL or NTSC system, video or audio compression.
Video DVD Maker is perfect for those people who don't want to spend too much time on learning a complex video editing platform, or want to save money by not purchasing value-added features that they will never use. Simplicity of use comes with the user interface, which has been designed as a three-step wizard for creating a DVD with just a few clicks. Now anyone, regardless of their creative ability, can master and deploy a professional output. At any point of video authoring, you can refer to the Help file with one press of the F1 button. However, the software is so straightforward that you can get started without any technical documentation.

I tried to use this to convert an hour-long mpeg to burn to DVD. After nearly 4 hours it was still less than a third the way through so I gave up. I use a notebook with an AMD Athlon processor running XP. Judging from this I would suggest this software is only suitable if you have a high-spec machine, in which case you probably already have Windows DVD Maker anyway.

I have an old VHS camcorder and I have been looking for a way to AVI my files to my system for digital editing. This software does the job of video capture very well though I am still looking at the various codecs.

That's what I want to know. I just burned a useless disc. I can only play the movie on my computer.
Will this program allow me to play discs in a regular DVD player or Playstation 2/3 platform?
Plus, Video DVD Maker allows you to deploy your video project on different types of disks, including CD R/RW, DVD R/RW and DVD R DL.
