I've been using the program for some time now and have made it my default CD/DVD burner based upon its ease of working. The interface is easy to navigate and the tools presented cover all the basics of what one would need. It's possible that a user might be in need of a few minor tweaks, but such things would add to the learning curve and diminish the simplicity of the program. Again, my 5 star rating is based upon ease of use with a good set of tools offered.
My original freeware program was having problems on my system, perhaps because of a Windows upgrade so I tried a number of different programs. They didn't work but this did straight away. Only tried the video DVD creation but worked fine.
If you want something that is simply easy to drop your video files onto, burn them to DVD and have them playable in your player, this is it.
I tried a mix of .avi and .mpeg tutorial video files and of course .avi's can get quite large. It took about 20 min to convert the .avi and .mpeg files, put them together into a playable DVD ntsc format. Not bad at all. And let me mention, they took up the whole DVD so it wasn't a few small files here. The DVD works great, no problem.
If you're looking for something to edit, add menus and such, no, this won't do that but if you simply want to throw some video files onto a DVD, or edited authored files, this will work wonders.
