DVD Authoring Software

Burn source files on DVD disc with menus, chapters, audio tracks, subtitles, slideshows and much more to play.

For DVD-Video, authoring refers to the process of designing, creating, collecting, formatting, and encoding source material on a DVD disc. The DVD Authoring Software then takes all your audio/video/subtitles/menus to create the VOB, BUP and IFO files found on DVDs.

IFO is a DVD information file that stores information about Chapters, Subtitles and Audio Tracks. VOB is a DVD file that contains the actual Video, Audio, Subtitle and Menu content in stream form. BUP is a DVD file that is a backup of the IFO files, and must be on the discs.

Most authoring programs include a burning engine, so you can directly burn your video files on a DVD disc. However, they are never mean to encode audio or video. The encoding function found in most authoring software is not very good.

Disc doesn't support multi-format, for that reason, the video must be all PAL or all NTSC. If not, most authoring software prevents this mistake from being made.

In addition, using the right MPEG files not AVI or DivX or whatever else non-MPEG files to burn. Therefore, you'd better convert video files to MPEG using Encoder program at first, then burn the MPEG file on DVD disc.

The following lists some DVD authoring software:
