5 Best Free MPEG-2 to DVD Authoring Software

MPEG-2 describes a combination of lossy video compression and lossy audio data compression methods which permit storage and transmission of movies using currently available storage media and transmission bandwidth.

How do you burn your hard drive in MPEG2 format to DVD for standard DVD player? You can easily share these MPEG-2 video with your friends and family on computer, but if you want to save these movie on DVD disc or send them to your grandma or others who want to watch the movie on TV with ease, how?

1: Windows DVD Maker (Windows 7/Vista)

If you’re using a Windows 7 computer, I can’t think of a better option for you. Since all premium Windows computers come with Windows DVD Maker pre-installed, you have no need to consider downloading another free DVD burning software program to create DVDs. The program works directly with Windows Live Movie Maker; gets a nice user interface; and has a good stability. Just like iDVD, it offers multiple themes and menus for freely option. It only supports video formats by Microsoft like WMV, ASF, MPG, etc. To author other media files with Windows DVD Maker, you need to convert them to the supported formats. And you can turn to a free video converter to do the conversion.

2:DVD Maker for Mac

I’d like to recommend DVD Maker for Mac – MPEG-2 to DVD Creator for Mac. It can help you convert and burn MPEG-2 video files to DVD on Mac os x. After burning MPEG-2 to DVD, you can play them on your home DVD player and watch them on huge-screen TV sitting on couch.

The biggest problem for MPEG-2 to DVD is it isn’t very user-friendly due to the poor user-interface. Besides, if you don’t have ImgBurn installed, you can’t burn video to DVD disc or ISO Image.

3: iDVD (Mac OS)

If you run on a Mac, iDVD is the best DVD authoring software for you. It comes free on most Macs with the iLife suite. The program is intuitive and offers loads of DVD menu templates and themes for selection. One flaw of iDVD is it only supports a few media formats like QuickTime VR, MPEG-1 or MPEG-2, Flash, etc. So if you want to burn AVI, WMV, etc. to DVD using iDVD, you may fail. Besides, as Apple has dropped support for iDVD, you might need another piece of DVD authoring software like Leawo DVD Creator for Mac.

4: DVD Flick (Windows Only)

DVD Flick offers a great balance between ease of use and DVD authoring power. It particularly highlights on this free DVD burning software supporting over 45 file formats (MP4, AVI, WMV, VOB, MOV, MPEG, FLV, MKV, etc.), 60+ video codecs and 40+ audio codecs. Thanks to its high compatibility, you can author a DVD from almost all regular media formats. DVD Flick allows you to create menus and subtitles for your DVDs; supports NTSC/PAL and 4:3/16:9 ratios; lets you burn to DVD disc or output as ISO. Another nice feature is, DVD Flick automatically calculates the bitrate of your project to make sure you can easily keep an eye on quality loss.

But the flaw for DVD Flick is, the program is getting old. It’s not been updated since 2009. Besides, someone feedbacks that the audio and video on many DVDs created by DVD Flick are out of sync.

5: DVD Styler (Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux)

Need a cross-platform DVD authoring freeware? You should keep an eye on DVD Styler. In person, I like DVD Styler because it’s extremely simple in its user interface but extremely capable. It lets you create DVDs from pretty much any video formats (AVI, MP4, WMV, VOB, FLV, MOV, MPEG, MKV, etc.). It’s smart enough not to re-encode MPEG and VOB files. It supports NTSC/PAL DVDs, allows you to choose 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio, creates DVD menus, lets you optionally control video/audio bitrate, and burns to DVD disc or outputs as ISO or DVD folder. The biggest attraction of DVD Styler is, it allows you to customize DVD menu the most. So creating professional-quality DVDs with DVD Styler is not a problem.

It’s worth mentioning that DVD Styler is in update, and DVD Styler makes up for Windows DVD Maker being gone on Windows 8.


Free Convert 3GA Files to MP3

Now, I’d like to share my experiences about how to free convert 3GA to MP3 or Play 3GA from Samsung Galaxy S 2/3/4, Nokia etc with Windows Media Player, iTunes, iPhone, iPad, iPod, Kindle Fire etc easily!

The First Way: you can use the Free Online 3GA Converter to help you, such as zamzar, audio.online.convert etc. This will not require download programs. However, they have many limits, such as the files size, output limits, and they can’t help you convert the 3GA audio to MP3 immediately, as they are not the really audio converter, their workers help you convert the files offline and then send to you via e-mail. You need to wait for a long time to receive the converted 3GA files with your e-mail.

The Send Way: you can directly rename the extension of the 3GA file: xxx.3ga to xxx.mp3. Rename the 3GA files is the easiest way to change the 3GA to MP3, but, this doesn’t actually convert anything .3ga and .mp3 are close enough in their encryption that your .mp3 player codec can still run it. It’s still a .3ga file.

In fact, I collected many free ways to convert .3ga to .mp3, but most all of them seem to just rename the .3ga to .mp3. But the renamed .3ga is still with 3GPP codec which still can’t be accepted by various devices or applications. If above free methods can’t satisfy you. I’d like to recommend the third way: a professional audio converting tool to you.

This 3GA to MP3 Converter tool allows you to convert 3GA audio files from Android, Samsung Galaxy S, S2, S3, S4, Galaxy Note, Note 2, ACE and Nokia etc to MP3 for play or edit on WMP, IOS devices or Android devices, WMM, iTunes, QuickTime etc as you like. It actually helps you convert the 3GA to MP3, changed the codec, and no quality loss. This Audio converting program allows you to general a true MP3 audio from 3GA files automatically. It is safe, best quality and fast speed. It not free and needs to be download, but it deserve.
