    CloneDVD DVD Creator is a simple video DVD Authoring app that can convert your audio/video to the mpg2 used on all video DVDs, lets you include basic DVD menus, and then puts the results in the proper layout or format that it will also burn to a blank DVD if you want. IMHO its biggest strength is likely to be converting the video you import to mpg2 — many other authoring apps are pretty restrictive with what you can import, & it includes Intel’s Quick Sync to speed things up if you’re running Intel graphics that can use it. It also uses ffmpeg & relies on DVDAuthor to create the video DVD end of things. One alternative [without Intel Quick Sync] is the open source DVD Styler, also available in a portable version — note the adware warnings if you decide to try it. http://www.videohelp.com/tools/DVDStyler

    CloneDVD DVD Creator’s program folder does take up ~175 MB — whether that’s a lot or not is relative & subjective… DVD Styler Portable is ~60 MB while my Nero folder [with 2014 Plat] totals over 3 GB. If I was still paying a few hundred dollars for a 20 GB drive, the size of that Nero folder would bother me a lot more than nowadays, when 2 TB can be had for $60-$75 on sale.

    As JohnWestbury noted, CloneDVD DVD Creator does add the Pcouffin driver — VSO software licenses it to plenty of companies & problems are rare enough that searching on “problem Pcouffin” (without quotes) I only get 23,300 hits, mostly it seems from the driver not installing rather than it conflicting with anything. That said, you can find info on removing it using Google &/or searching the VSO forum [forums.vso-software.fr].

    There’s a somewhat healthy, but by no mean complete list of video DVD authoring apps at videohelp.com/tools/sections/authoring-dvd . Based on that the $29 asking price for CloneDVD DVD Creator seems in line. As you move up the food chain video DVD authoring software will let you use multiple audio tracks, & further up the chain you’ll get support for subs. More advanced authoring apps will let you place your menu buttons where you want them, & use as many [or as few] as you want. Everything you see on a video DVD is mpg2 video, & whether it’s a video clip/file or a background for a menu, when that video ends it can trigger something else, just as if you clicked on a menu button — more expensive apps let you set what happens. Higher end apps also let you work with the scripts that tell the player what to do. However every step up adds complexity & that means more learning.

    When it comes to mpg2 encoding, VBR [Variable Bit Rate] is better than Constant [CBR], but if you get stuck with CBR it’s not the end of the world. If you are going to use 24 fps sources for NTSC DVDs, it’s worthwhile to use pull-down — pull-down = instructions embedded in the file telling players to repeat frames, so you don’t have to actually add them & make files bigger. Being able to use a separate encoder or converter is cool, but only more necessary if the authoring app doeosn’t give you much control over encoding settings. Note that many of these apps will only work with separate audio & video files, while others will only let you import them combined. Surprisingly often overlooked is a decent way to add chapters — you Do want to use chapters because your viewers Will expect them [clicking the timeline or progress bar on a PC is OK, but using a stand-alone player ffwd is a poor substitute].

    For those with problem activating CloneDVD DVD Creator:
    It seems CloneDVD DVD creator can be registered offline and limited to 3-time usage, but Online activation is required to activate two years license.
    Another thing I dislike about CloneDVD DVD Creator is it calls home during each program startup, Presumably to check ur license.

    Also, I found out that CloneDVD DVD Creator is actually based on BlazeVideo DVD Creator http://www.blazevideo.com/dvd-authoring

    You may take a look at this download list, it collects 10 free DVD Burning software, they are totally free without any limitation and watermark. I’m sure you will find one to burn DVD. I personally prefer to using imgburn.

    Hope it helps.

    Installed it and after looking it over decided to uninstall. Reasons:[1] it installs a complete set of separate programs including the “DvD Creator” giveaway. All are accessed from a common launch interface, But all are trial versions. As Ashraf’s instructions indicate only on the “Creator” is activated by the giveaway license code and the rest are all trial versions. [2] Decided that 200+ MB space taken up by this install was not worth it. After the other trials expired would have a limited capability [and likely nags to buy the full suite of programs. [3] And there are many free programs that do what this giveaway does or even more. Check out Ashraf’s suggestion by clicking on the S.O.S. ‘BEST FREE SOFTWARE’ link on this site.

    The install wants to put 14 different programs (part of the VSO package). I hesitated to install them, but it looks like they are all codecs, decoders etc. for audio and video files, so I thought they were okay and wouldn’t burden my system too much. Am I correct about that?

    Thanks to SOS and Ashraf for offering this program and the advice that goes with it. One thing I don’t like about today’s offer: Only one module in five is licensed with this giveaway. This is very different than a company offering a free program to publicize their other products (as Wondershare and Ashampoo do). Unless I am wrong, after a brief trial period only one of the five functions in the program (DVD Copy/Ripper/Creator, Video Converter and Slideshow Maker) will work. This is very aggressive marketing IMHO, putting things in the program that won’t work unless you buy those modules.

    I appreciate the freebie, and understand that the purpose of it is to sell the mfr’s other software or get their name known, but it will really piss me off every time I click a link and it tells me I have to buy a different program if I really want to do that. It’s too bad that CloneDVD chose this marketing model. If the Creator function alone is not exceptionally better than other programs I have (paid and free) I will not keep it on my computer.

    [@Ashraf] Yes, I hear your arguments : even, I agree with you if I would install a new version, or if, after changing my opinion,i want re install the software; but in this case, it is not my fault or my decision if my system crashes and to be obliged to renew all my installation. It’s a special case, I know, but it is something which happens.

    [@JohnWestbury] Thanks for the feedback.

    [@guido.fournil] You do realize you aren’t entitled to free software. Developers run giveaways as a way to drive sales and increase brand recognition. Different developers place different type of restrictions on giveaways as a way to achieve those two goals. One such restriction some developers use is they limit the amount of time you have to install/register. If you use a software so much that you will need it after you reinstall, you can always purchase it.

    We would all love all software to be free but that isn’t the way the world works. Everyone has to eat, even software developers.

    [@colodax] It works. Make sure you don’t enter any spaces at the start/end of the code.

    [@guido.fournil] Use a software to detect and save all your license keys & codes in a text file and download each software from original manufacturer (as trial versions, possibly) and not from the giveawayoftheday site’s links, which connects first to them to check the dates, whereas the original manufacturers do not. And then use the keys you have to reregister. Sometimes this may work, sometimes it wont. But worth a try, IMHO.

    It’s really painful when we must install software before the offer is over, without possibility of re-installation.
    I know I have to plan soon a new installation of my Windows, and I am going to lose all my registrations …. It’s a pity.

    Just Be aware: Installation tried to involve some sort of Device Driver (for VSO?) – which doesn’t seem right!!
    I declined to do so, and the installation completed correctly (by all accounts).
