    Best FREE MP4 to DVD Software?


    I saw that there were several packages that I have always used, like CDBurnerXP and ImgBurn. However, these will not work with MP4 files. So, is there any good FREE software out there I should get? I ask as I only use this once or twice a year at the most.
    Thank you all. OH, if it matters I use 64bit Win10 Pro...not CU.

    Hi, could you describe more exactly what are you trying to do? Author a DVD complete with titles, chapters, menus?

    What sort of mp4 files are they? Audio? Video?

    Presumably you're not simply wanting to burn the mp4 files to a DVD.

    See e.g.

Furthermore, it is fully compatible with DVD+/-R, DVD+/-RW, DVD DL+R, DVD DL+/-RW that perfectly helps you backup your precious files into DVD-5 or DVD-9 discs in NTSC or PAL format.

    Thank you both. Well, when an episode of a show that my wife missed is on that website, like Lifetime, they let you watch it online. No problem, but she wants to see it on TV. So, Snagit will capture the video and sound and save it as an .mp4. I want to turn that mp4 into something that will play in a dvd player that is, of course, connected to our TV.

    The authoring tools I posted should let you do that.

    Hi there

    another solution (IMO probably better, more flexible and easier).

    1) get an amazon fire TV box / firestick and connect to TV

    2) install KODI on it - easy to do -- you can even do it from a phone (android) with app2firetv or similar

    3) simply then on the TV open the amazon TV box / stick (probably will be connected via the second / other HDMI input cable) --> home-->my applications-->kodi and then browse for your mp4 file --then just play it. If your remote computer is linux it's even easier -- just mount the HDD your multi-media is on as a samba shareable drive and then simply browse the drive in the kodi app - choose the file and simply play --kodi plays more formats than even the legendary VLC. !!!

    4) for subtitles you can (from the fire tv stick / box) within the kodi application simply download subtitles from opensubtitles.org or subsceene.com (or other user selectable sites).

    Brilliant application --plays almost anything - even ripped DVD iso's with menus etc.

    Cheers

    Will this setup let us just go to the website without d/l the mp4?

    Is the TV a SmartTV and connected to your router? Most SmartTVs are DLNA devices and you can stream media to them without the aid of additional hardware (such as a firestick).

    Tty right-click on the .mp4 file in File Explorer and hover the mouse pointer over 'Cast to device'. If your TV appears in the list of available devices you can stream the .mp4 direct to your TV. That's how I watch all my video files.

    No, although the Tivo, DVD and TV are connected to the LAN, the TV is not a smart device. I think the LAN is for firmware updates if they create any.
