Free DVD Video Burner is a simple and easy-to-use software tool which allows you to perform a very specific task - burning an existing DVD folder into a DVD disc. There are several ways of creating DVD folders and storing them into your hard disk or external drive for later burning - for example, using DVD backup tools. Then, you can use Free DVD Video Burner to put those folders back into a DVD disc.
Due to the simplicity of the task this program performs, users will find its GUI also very simple to use. You just need to select the location of the DVD folder to be burned (typically, a VIDEO_TS folder), and then press the "Burn" button. There is also a visual indicator for you to know the remaining free space in your disc, for both single- and double-layered blank DVDs. You can also tweak a few extra parameters through the "Options" window. For example, you can select the DVD burning drive and speed. Besides, you can configure the program to shut down your PC, eject the disc, and delete the DVD folder after the burning job has finished.
To sum up, even though this program performs its job satisfactorily, its functionality is very limited, as it was designed for a very specific task. Actually, this program is also included as an extra tool in other DVDVideoSoft applications that require video DVD disc burning.
