Default DVD creator

Can anyone recommend a free video to dvd converter software that will accept most video formats e.g AVI and mp4. I have taken a look and there seem to be quite a few out there. I have tried the windows DVD creator but it seems very slow.

XVid4PSP and Handbrake. Both completely free.

XVid4PSP can use a ton of formats. I haven't used the new version much (back when it was still 4.115), and I didn't like version 5. There's a new version 6 beta out, so I might download it and give it another shot soon. Xvid4PSP is just a shell for the latest encoding software to make it much easier to use.

Handbrake is awesome. It was supposed to be the new industry standard, but they opted for CCE (Cinema Craft Encoder) instead. Still just as versatile, and the output quality is outstanding without overwhelming the user.

I'd say try Handbrake first. I've had some issues with a few formats in the past, but I'm sure it's ironed out by now.

does Handbreak let you convert to dvd layout then? as I have used it to rip my dvds but never the other way around.

I use VSO's convertxDVD software any time I want to convert one of the HD anime, tv showes, or movies that I have downloaded into a dvd. It reans all major formats, including mkv, with subtitles. It offers a no menu option or a bunch of pre constructed menu layouts to auto create for the one or multiple video files that comprise of th project. It also has Full multi core support for fast conversions.
