Xilisoft AVI to DVD Converter can help you create your own DVDs. Unfortunately, it only supports AVI and MPG as source formats while many other popular formats are excluded. It is characterized by a great number of authoring functions that will allow you to customize the resulting DVDs. The program has an intuitive interface that looks very alike to those of other converters. Therefore, if you've used other similar software before, you will probably find this one uncomplicated.
After adding the desired files, you can check their contents and take snapshots of them. This is also the time when you can make changes to the source videos. Thus, the program lets you create multi-language DVD as you can import various audio tracks or embed multiple subtitles from external SRT files. Likewise, you can select a segment from the original files instead of the whole clip. Other available functions include adding effects and watermarking.
Similarly, the software puts you in control of many output parameters. Thus, you can select a DVD quality, a TV standard and an aspect ratio. In addition, not only discs can be created because storing the output contents as DVD folders or ISO image files is also supported.
Should you want to give your DVD a personalized look and at the same time ease navigation, you can create a menu. Luckily, the program comes with several nice-looking menu templates and more can be downloaded from the developer’s site. However, you may find that these templates are not customizable enough.
In general, Xilisoft AVI to DVD Converter is an excellent application with support of modern hardware. Its main disadvantage is derived from its limited range of input formats, but if you do not mind that, you will surely be very pleased with this tool.
