    I have been using freemake converter for a while to covert to dvd and burn my home movies.
    I takes roughfly 10 to 12 minutes from start to finsh. (approx 150 minutes of Video)
    I am completey happy with the quality and every other feature.
    Question can any one recommend another "converter" free or "not" that is faster and easy to use>
    Thanks
    i have tryied ConvertXtoDVD 4 simple to use but take about 30 minutes

    Never tried it myself, and (currently) it hasn't been updated in over 2 years, but DVD Flick is free.

    But as you said, you're completely happy with Freemake

    Maybe you will get better quality with AVStoDVD.

    DVD FLICK did have a reputation for being fast at the expense of a little quality, perhaps.

    thanks However i am open to any converter that is faster than fremake ie free downloads or ones that you have to buy.
    All in all i guess fremake converter at 10-15 minutes to convert and burn a dvd is a descent time for the quality i have been getting.
    Maybe i am asking for to much?

    I doubt you will find anything faster.

    There might be a faster program if you are just moving the video and audio to a different container without converting to another codec, but 10 to 12 minutes is fast for any other kind of conversion (to a different codec) or for DVD authoring. I doubt that you can do better if you are doing either of those things.

    fremake converter took 11 minutes 4 seconds to convert and burn
    convertXtodvd 4 took 16 minutes 30 seconds to convert and burn A little better quality but not much than freemake
    DVD FLICK I will download and try it next

    So far freemake is the fastest and free (flv to dvd, burn dvd and then let you play in television dvdplayer)My thoughts only

    have a go with favc, its uses a "special multicore" quenc version, i remember using it on a quadcore pc and it opened 4 quenc instances at the same time converting at the same time, really fast and good quality conversion. it hasnt been updated but works
    I love it when a plan comes together!

    Nope, dvd flick hasn't been updated for a long time so it doesn't support all flvs.

    I was wondering if you folks no if the purchased version of convertXtodvd 4 was faster than the free trial version?


    freemake converter took 11 minutes 4 seconds to convert and burn
    convertXtodvd 4 took 16 minutes 30 seconds to convert and burn A little better quality but not much than freemake

  19. When I use Freemake Video Converter, it only seems to convert to about 22 or 23 minutes. It says it's complete but none of the 6 files I've tried complete to the end. In fact, after I add the video and choose the format to convert, it even shows the size of the show to only be 22 ish minutes. Anyone else run into this?

    Crappy/corrupt source? Maybe badly joined so it only sees the first joined file for example.

    But I don't see what that has do with this thread...fastest video to dvd converter...
