You may need a DVD encoder more than you think you do. This s because DVD encoders can create burning-ready DVD video files from virtually any format –AVI, WMV, ASF, or MPEG. Newer versions of DVD encoders allow you to encode practically any playable movie to a DVD.
What is a DVD encoder?
Just like all other encoders, a DVD encoder compresses very large video and audio files, so that it fits in a DVD. Most DVD encoders automatically set up your video files and slideshows for Video CD, Super Video CD or DVD. Most operate using a variable bit rate encoder. This means that the DVD encoder can adjust the encoding settings as required, so that you can squeeze in as many files on the disc as possible. Remember that the quality of encoded DVDs is directly correlated to the duration of the video or audio file you want to burn into the disc. The smaller the file size, the higher the overall quality.
How do I choose a DVD encoder?
One of the most important features of a DVD recorder is its user-friendliness. You should be able to easily drag and drop images, videos and audio files from your hard disk. It should also make transferring from a digital video camcorder easy. You should also be able to add additional content to the disc, like texts or html pages that be read by any computer.
Be sure to shop around before zooming in on a DVD recorder. Compare specifications and prices. It’s also a good idea to read user reviews about different brands on the Internet. Invest only in DVD encoders that get the thumbs up not only from digital video experts but average end-users as well. Some computer systems come with built-in DVD encoders. Ask your computer manufacturer or dealer for options available to you.
