Lots of people out there ask what the best tool for convert those movie files you have on your computer to a playable DVD, well lets cut to the chase I think it’s ConvertXtoDVD. Now lots of people are going to say there are other programs out there that are free or better but if you want just point and click conversion then ConvertXtoDVD is the way to go.
Now I’ll be honest if I was burning a DVD that contained multi videos, say something of an Episodic nature I like more control over the menus produced so I might use something Like NeroVision, however the price you would pay for that is basically NeroVision is slow and doesn’t handle everything. The main and primary reasons I like ConvertXtoDVD is that it handles MKV files, and supports Subtitles.
