DVD Flick is a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Authoring tool. It can take several video files stored on your computer and turn them into a DVD that will play back on your DVD player, Media Center or Home Cinema Set.
DVD Flick is Open Source, meaning that anyone can download and view or modify the program's source code. It also means that it is absolutely free of charge. Several external programs are used by DVD Flick to do the dirty work like encoding and combining of video material. All of these programs are free, some are Open Source too.
- Added: buttonSubtitleMenuX and buttonAudioMenuX button types that jump to a title's audio or button menu directly
- Changed: Removed "High" encoding priority setting. It is not useful anyway (no speed gain, only chokes other processes)
- Changed: Updated FFmpeg to revision 19276
- Changed: Updated ImgBurn to version 18.104.22.168
- Changed: Removed "Enable menu" checkbox and replaced it by a "None" menu option
- Fixed: Overflow error when loading large files
- Fixed: Negative audio delays were not corrected

This is probably the best DVD authoring program I've used. It's the best free, open source one, that's for sure! It was easy to take some video clips and burn them to a DVD with a menu. I would like to see more menu choices, like the ability to make custom menus with your own backgrounds, buttons, links, etc. Once they do that, it'll be very hard to beat, even compared to expensive programs!

ffmpeg crashed and burned

According to the DVDFlick forums, what the developers call "portable" is actually a stripped down version (no shared libraries, to cut down on file size) for beta-testing. It was never designed to be portable, and in fact is not portable as the .ocx's were not included.
Anyway, it looks like this is the FULL version now attached to the portable link.
The full version does work well.

'Portable' requires no install and ideally should write to the application folder and not the registry. Portable apps keep your system free of clutter and can be used from usb and other portable drives. The number of apps with portable versions is growing rapidly.
DvdFlick seems to work well but requires about 3 hours for a 700mg vid on my admittedly low spec machine (1.8ghz, 1gb ram). Use portable.bat to start the program, to avoid error messages.
