I experienced how to burn video to DVD without any losses. Here I share it with you all with my pleasure.

The article will refer to Pioneer/Plaxtor DVD Burner, DVD Disc, Wondershare Video to DVD Burner - a DVD burning software.

What should be done to achieve high quality DVD?

1. Choose a burner

There are many burners in the market, how to choose the best burner is an important thing. Of course, it refers to the desktop users. Generally, most people choose Plextor or Pioneer, which are both Japanese brands. They have high quality, of course they are more expensive. Compared with these two brands, Plextor is more suitable for professional authoring manufacturers, Pioneer is more suitable for personal users. Now the pop models are Pioneer DVR-117CH/Sonic AD-7200A/LG GH22LS30 and PX-750A.Please remember capacity and price is one aspect, durable is also a reference point.

2. Choose a DVD Disc

DVD Disc is very important. The quality of DVD Disc not only affects the DVD Burner's life-span, but also affects the DVD Video's quality, sometimes even occur waste DVD Disc. So you must choose the high quality DVD Disc which is compatible to DVD Burner. You should also keep the DVD Disc by correct ways. Either high quality DVD Disc or low quality DVD Disc, everyone can not say how long the data will exist. Making a backup every one or two years is propositional.

Note: Post on a layer of protection mode is better, and do not expose DVD Disc under sunlight.

3. Choose a DVD Burner software

This is a very key step on burning high quality DVD. Some software will crash when authoring, which makes one mad. Wondershare Video to DVD Burner is recommended. I choose this software as it includes these 3 key features:

Firstly, Burn all pop video files: including AVI, MP4, MPG, MPEG, 3GP, WMV, ASF, RM, RMVB, DAT, MOV, FLV, MKV, M2TS, TP, etc. to DVD Disc.Secondly, High compatibility: Burners supported: Pioneer, Plextor, Samsung, ASUS, LG, Philip, Sony, Benq, OVK, etc.; Disc supported: DVD–5 and DVD–9; DVD-R, DVD+R, DVD-RW, DVD+RW, DVD+R DL, DVD-R DL, DVD-RAM.Thirdly, Powerful video editing function: Supports movie trimming, cropping and effect adjustment. Allows you to set brightness, contrast, saturation and choose the suitable resolution.

Tips when burning

Firstly, Before burning you should choose the video quality options. The highest video quality option is best. But this option means longer time for authoring and more capacity to occupy. To obtain high video quality it is worthy.Secondly, In order to occupy less capacity, you'd better cut the intro/credit of the videos.
