With the free AVSTODVD can you convert most of your video files to standard DVD-Video that will work on most standalone DVD Players.
Download and install AVSTODVD . Be sure to install the included Avisynth, Imgburn, etc. You can skip it if you already have installed them.
When you first start AVSTODVD set the default DVD standard, north american users select NTSC and European users choose PAL.
1. Load your video files. AVSTODVD supports most formats like avi, mp4, mkv, flv. Don't put too many hours video/DVD. Around 2-3 hours.
2. You can also load extra audio tracks or subtitles by right click on each track and seelct audio/subtitle track -> add.
3. Set the DVD Size, DVD-5 for normal DVD-R and DVD-9 for DVD-R Dual Layer or use a custom size.
4. Under Output can you select to burn, output to a dvd folder(video_Ts), make iso or make a mpeg2 file. I choose the ISO UDF Image. I can then test the DVD before I burn it.
5. Now start. The encoding will take anything from some minutes to several hours depending how fast your computer is.
Several windows should popup. Don't close anything. Like:
Now waaaaaaaait. If you are converting several hours of video it will probably take some hours.
After it's completed test play the ISO with for example VLC media player, select media->open file and open the iso file.
Last burn the ISO with Imgburn
Start Imgburn and select Write Image to DVD
Open the ISO file.

Hello, I've been burning a couple of dvds for playing in my dvd player and the've worked perfectly. Howeve I've got this doubt: I got my video_ts folder from avstodvd from an italian movie I purchased long ago. The orginal dvd does not have Spanish subt (it only has russian and English). I got the Spanish subt in .srt and would like to know how to include them on the folder before burning with ImgBurn.
Can you help me again? Thanks a lot!
1. Right-click on the Title (located in the Source Titles box).
2. Move the cursor to "Subtitles (max 3)" on the context menu.
3. Click "Add Subtitles" in the fly-out menu to add the new Spanish Subtitles.
If you need to remove a subtitle:
1. Right-click on the subtitle track to be removed.
2. Move the cursor to "Subtitles (max 3)" in the context menu.
3. Click "Remove Subtitle" from the fly-out menu.

Thanks a lot!
if you already have the VIDEO_TS/AUDIO_TS folders, before adding the new SRT subs in AVStoDVD, you have to demux the original assets files (m2v -> video, ac3 -> audio, sup ->subs) and then use those assets files as source files of the new AVStoDVD project. Then you can add the new subs as explained by usually_quiet.
To demux you can use the 'Tools'/'Parse DVD' utility in AVStoDVD.
Hello everyone, thanks for your kind help, but I'm still unable to solve it. I've got only a VIDEO_TS folder. Thing is when I drag and drop the VIDEO_TS folder to AVStoDVD the following message popa up:
Warning! Unrecognized or unsopported file format for tittle:
Do you want to continue anyway?
This way more than I can handel! Can you help me again? Thanks

AVStoDVD does not accept VIDEO_TS folder as source title. Prior you have to demux the elementary (m2v for video, ac3 for audio, sup for subtitles) files using the 'Parse DVD' utility. See main window, Tools menu.
