Burn any video file to DVD with DVD Flick
Need to burn an AVI, MPEG, WMV, MOV or another type of video file to a DVD? Well now there is an excellent, free, open source solution to meet your needs. DVD Flick is a completely free Windows application that allows you to convert and burn virtually ANY video file to a DVD Recordable disc.
The resulting disc will be compatible on most standalone DVD players. LifeHacker recently posted an article on this phenomenal piece of software, which is now available for everyone to freely enjoy.
I previously posted about AVI2DVD, another GUI video conversion application powered by freeware tools, but DVD Flick is even easier to use and supports more video file formats.
Burn any video to DVD encoding
The encoding process (converting the video file to a DVD compliant video format) can take a couple of hours depending on the power of your hardware, so do not expect an instant conversion result. Nonetheless, I found that the utility works very well and has a very small learning curve.
DVD Flick is an ideal solution for those wishing to convert video files captured from digital cameras, video camcorders or even other video files that have been downloaded from various sources online. It is an excellent alternative for commercial software such as ConvertXtoDVD and other such applications. I have no problems recommending this excellent piece of freeware.

Great tip. Thank you!
Hi Mitch, I’m glad you you enjoyed it. 😉
I’ve tried DVDFlick twice and it unfortunately failed both times. I don’t know if it was my laptop but the converted video ended up being extremely choppy and the sound skipped.
Might be a codec issue or conflict on my end. I’ve yet to try it out with other file formats.

AVI2DVD is another free video conversion alternative. It is a collection of freeware utilities with a GUI front-end. You might want to give that a shot if you can not get DVD Flick working properly.
Check out my post about here:
Make sure to reference the excellent AVI2DVD guide on Afterdawn (linked in my AVI2DVD article).
I also had a problem with DVDFlick successfully completing. But I only tried it once though, so I will give it another shot.
I have tried DVDFlick on 2 different PCs and it did not work. First, it did not render the subtitles, second, it only rendered about 20% of my AVI (300 MB of 1,5 GB).
The authors says that the problem with the subtitles might be down to encoding but I was unable to figure out the problem even for several different encodings.
Cannot recommend to anyone.
