Publisher's Description

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.

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!

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.

Unless I'm totally mistaken (and I have been ) this is DVD Flick "Portable", NOT DVD Flick. I had the same errors others are reporting when I tried to install this.

I'm rating this for the "Portable" version.

DVD Flick 1.3.0.0 Build 616 (beta) works great.

EDIT:
I see rcglidden below commented on the same thing. What is the Portable version about?

Both builds 671 and 674 have the same error as reported by rcglidden below...I'm surprised to see this fatal error persist over several builds...average rating as I can't run the application with this error in place.

rcglidden reviewed v1.3.0.0 Build 674 Beta on Aug 8, 2008

I have tried this before and it worked fine.

This version gives me a "comct232.ocx" error and refuses to start, so... I can't rate it a 5 if I can't run it! But that's what beta's are all about!

EDIT: 8/15/08;
This is the PORTABLE version, did I miss that somewhere in the description? The build 674 full install is available (and works) in the DVDFlick forums. The full version includes the .ocx's

So I wonder, how is this portable!?

Takes me about 25 minutes to convert a 2 hour movie into a DVD (including the time it takes to burn it), what else do you need?.

12.5 hrs later I had an mpg (and 11 other odd files) of a quality which exactly matched convertx's entire completed (in about 2 hrs!) dvd.

Review of Prev version: Great App. Quick and easy, I don't care much for DVD Menu's these days so it's a nice clean app. I just wish there was an option to NOT touch an AC3 5.1 Audio file I input. It keeps recoding them, messing up the discreet channels and making it sound more like a Dolby Digital 2.0 rather than full 5.1 surround.

RaGhul: What kind of system are you using DVD Flick with. Only reason I ask is becuase i use a 1.3ghz AMD Athlon XP with 786MB of RAM and it took me 2.5hrs to build a 2 hours movie from 2 DivX files on Above Normal

Sorry, guys. I don't see what all the fuss is about.

When I first read a post referring to this app, I thought it might be a good alternative to ConvertX, so I gave it a try.

The interface is kinda plain, but that's just fine for me. I tend to find that the plainer they are, the better they work... usually.

On first run, I went with normal settings. After watching the progress bar for 20 minutes, I could clearly tell it was gonna be awhile. (Feel like a Snickers bar, anyone?) So, I stopped it, and changed the settings from NORMAL to FAST encoding, and NORMAL to ABOVE AVERAGE resource usage.

Lo and behold, after 3 hrs and 45 min, it was done. (Wow!!) Excruciatingly slow.

As far as speed goes, it's about on par with Nero Recode, which isn't saying much at all.

It's worth mentioning that I added 2 subtitle tracks as well, but ConvertX does the same thing in only 2 hrs, with 'personalized menus' included.

Nice effort. I love openSource projects, but this one's still way behind the curve.

There's nothing cheaper (free) or easier (4 clicks or so) to take those (legally acquired) Divx's and other video files you've (legally) downloaded and whip up a DVD for the living room. It may take a little while to transcode and burn (about 30 minutes on a P4@3GHz for a 22 minute sitcom episode, but that's no slower than other software), but once you select your files and pick your desired settings, you can just walk away, and out pops your DVD when it's done. It'll even save the ISO file if you want more copies - well done all around.

It's a great simple program for burning all those tv shows to dvd. You can make each episode its own chapter.

Good.
I highly recommend "Nero 7 Ultra" for money people. It contains "Nero Vision" which I use to add xivd and divx (does other formats)to make a DVD. It can add NTSC or PAL, then create NTSC or PAL.

I gave DVD Flick a "4" for the cost but it doesn't compare to Nero Vision (from Nero 7 Ultra).

It would be interesting to take several different video clips (xvid, divx etc) and compare Nero Vision to this app on an HDTV.

Excellent early effort.

Open Source software totally rules. If this app can consolidate just a bit better and add some functionality, I could see a lot of people potentially switching over to it and recommending it to their buds.

Please, keep up the great work on this project.

very promising, it is the open source equivalent of the convertxtodvd.

The only think missing is 1) the automatically addition of the subtitles and 2) you can not customise the dvd menu.

Everything else is almost the same with the commercial program from vso
