Burning movies to DVD, VCD, SVCD using AVS Video Converter


AVS Video Converter enables you to burn a DVD movie to playback in your home DVD player from all modern video formats. The integrated DVD/VCD burning engine and the widest range of supported video formats make AVS Video Converter a perfect tool to create personal DVD movies. Just follow these few steps listed below.


Step 1: Download and install AVS Video Converter


First download AVS Video Tools, which contains the AVS Video Converter. After the download is finished, run the avsvideotools.exe file and follow the installation wizard instructions.


Step 2: Run AVS Video Converter and select your input video file


To select a video you would like to convert hit the Browse... button next to Input File Name Field. In the opened Windows Explorer Window browse for the necessary DVD folder:

NOTE! When your input is a DVD Disc, you will need to select the path to your source file: X://Video_TS/Video_TS.IFO. "X" stands for your DVD-ROM or the hard disk drive folder where your DVD is stored:

It is important to select the IFO file, rather than VOB file, because the IFO file contains the information about the entire DVD structure and this way you will avoid audio and video de-synch problems when converting. Also, most DVDs have several VOB files (files with actual video)and if you convert VOBs instead of IFO, you will have to merge them afterwards, which is not the case with the IFO files.


Step 3: Set up the conversion parameters


Click To DVD button on the main panel if you want to create a DVD. For SVCD/VCD click To MPEG button. In the list of video disc types (Burn To) select one of the preset profiles.

You can edit the files to burn. By clicking (+/-) buttons you can add or remove files from the list. Using the Arrows you can change the sequence of files.


Step 4: Set up a proper video output file path


Click the Browse... button next to Output File Name field and select a location on your HDD for the output video file.

NOTE! When you select a location for your output video file, you should save the file to your personal computer HDD.


Step 5: Convert your DVD files


After you have set up all the conversion parameters, hit the Convert Now! button to start converting.

The result of the conversion should be a folder with DVD (or SVCD/VCD) video files that will be recorded onto a disc with the help of the AVS Video Converter internal burning engine. It will be launched automatically when the conversion process is over.


Step 6: Burn your resulting DVD onto a disc


Insert a blank DVD into your computer optical disc drive. Make sure that the disc is compatible with your drive. AVS Video Burner application will be launched to guide you through the burning process so that you could record your converted video onto a disc.

You can select the necessary disc drive if you have several, refresh it and mark the Verify disc check-box to make sure the disc is recorded correctly.

Now click the Start burning! button to begin the recording. Note, that if the disc is not empty you will be offered to erase it. If you do not want to do that, you can eject the disc and use another one instead.

After the burning is over the disc will be ejected automatically. Note, if you checked the Verify disc, the recording will take a little longer depending on the size of the output files as the program will need time to verify them.

Now you can watch your recorded DVD on your Home DVD Player!
