Creating and adding multiple video files to "playable" dvds

by Memory Maniac / May 19, 2010 1:37 PM PDT

Anyone got good info on combining- lets say "Mini DVDs" to a regular dvd-r and saving and re-arranging files, even adding titles to different chapters? Then it just playing regularly without having to push play at the end of each file to move on to the next chapter (it'll also save the batteries on your dvds remote control too, Huh? Ha!Ha!) Thanks if any info could be shared

* "DVD Flick" to author such combination to create a single DVD... so try a DVD authoring tool....some are free - google for them.

* I have also used a "slide show creater" which is part of a photo editor program....e.g. Ulead Photo Explorer [not free] by treating a video file as a photo file.....and create a DVD of the slide show.

You need to get a program. They all do that. Pinnacle, Roxio, Broderbund. Just go to your favorite software distributor & look for one. From wild to mild, depends on your budget. Just drag the files, set up the order & so on.
Or, you could pay someone to do it for you ;})
