How to convert video files to DVD using VSO ConvertXtoDVD 3


VSO's ConvertXtoDVD software can take almost any common video file you have, encode it to MPEG-2, build a DVD compilation and Burn to a blank DVD, and the best part is how easy it all is. It has the ability to convert multiple file types, including AVI files (DivX or XviD supported), Quicktime files (MOV), Matroska files (MKV), Windows Media Video files (WMV) etc.. to DVD. It produces a VIDEO_TS folder containing your DVD files (.VOB, .BUP and .IFO) and can burn it directly to DVD. It can convert NTSC to PAL and vice versa, 4:3 or 16:9 output and also has more bitrate options than previous versions of the software. It has support for manual or automatic chapters, subtitle streams and multiple audio streams also. It can also output an interactive Menu; complex with motion and audio, or a simple still menu, it's your choice.
