DVD is no longer the first choice for people to enjoy visual or aural treats and save data since streaming services and cloud storage have become regular. However, none of these services come free. You may need to pay $10 per month, or worse, you have to pay for each song or movie you plan to enjoy separately. And you’ll never know when will the next price increase come.
But if you try to burn video, music, image, and data files to a DVD, you won’t have that kind of worry anymore.
Luckily, it’s never tough work to burn files to a DVD. All we need is a computer installed with DVD burning software. You may ask that there’re tons of DVD burning software on the market and how to pick up a good one.
So in today’s post, you will find a best-of-the-best list that contains the 5 best DVD burning programs that are the leading icons of DVD burning. And take it easy, none of them will lay watermarks on your DVD content. Just pick up one that favors most and start to burn files to a DVD.
Top 5 DVD Burning Software without watermarks:
Being an expert in CD, DVD, and BD, DVDFab is an all-in-one program that helps users rip, burn, create, and copy discs. Providing 2 tab – Copy and Creator, you may choose one and start your burning based on the format of target files.
Under the Copy tab, you can find 9 modes:
As for the Creator mode, you may use it to create a movie or music disc with some digital files like MP4, MKV, and MP3.
However, nothing is perfect, even the most powerful DVD burner comes with flaws.
Cons of DVDFab:
II.Leawo Prof. Media
Similar to DVDFab, Leawo Prof. Media is also one of those professional DVD/BD managers that can burn, rip, create, and copy DVDs.
For starters, if you’re not short of budget, Leawo Prof. Media will be your sweetest partner while dealing with issues like DVD, Blu-ray disc, video conversion, or editing.
Reasons why you should pick up Leawo Prof. Media
You can immediately start to burn files to a DVD by going to the Burn tab and dragging files to the program.
The program supports creating a movie disc or photo slide show with digital files like MP4, MKV, AVI, and JPG, GIF, PNG. You can burn the video ISO file and DVD folder too.
With Leawo Prof. Media, a third-party video or picture editor program becomes a useless tool.
Offering a built-in editor feature, you can use Leawo to clip and optimize the video ( adjust the brightness/contrast/saturation). Also, a 3D enhancement that contains 6 types of 3D technologies allows you to convert a 2D movie into 3D. Let’s not talk about the great contribution of the Remove Noise in filmed videos.
Superior to DVDFab, you can use Leawo to add a custom menu to the movie or photo disc by using built-in, online, and custom templates, adding background music, changing the font of the buttons, etc.
For big-screen viewing, Leawo also offers you the chance to decide the TV Standard of the burned DVD.
As for Leawo Prof. Media’s flaws, I can’t say there are any. But its interface is kind of outdated, to some extent, a bit ugly maybe.
III. Tipard DVD Creator
During my test, there’s one DVD burning software, Tipard DVD Creator, that stood out to me for various reasons.
First of all, if you plan to create a movie or music DVD with digital files like MP4, AVI, WMV, MKV, MP3, and DVD folder, look no further than Tipard DVD Creator.
The program can burn up to 50 files to a DVD simultaneously with its amazing burning speed – 50 times faster than those normal ones.
Similar to DVDFab and Leawo, you’re available to add a custom menu to your movie or music disc. But this time, with Tipard, you can do something that no other program is capable of.
For example, you may add an opening film to the menu to make your DVD look like a Disney or Marvel commercial disc. Let’s not mention that you can add background music, reposition buttons, and use custom or default templates.
Same as Leawo, Tipard offers a tab named Power Tools where you can find multiple editing features, like Subtitle/Audio/Video Edit, Split, Merge, Create Chapter, etc.
Though you cannot find a 3D enhancement or Remove Noise on Power Tools as Leawo does, you’re still available to add filters to the video to make it more stylish.
Yet, Tipard cannot burn ISO files to a DVD, which you may consider as its only con.
IV. Cyberlink Power2Go
Another DVD-burning software that surprises me is the Power2Go that is developed by Cyberlink, a tech giant.
1. Disc encryption
More than just a DVD burning program, the Power2Go can also serve as a DVD & USB encrypter tool.
If you plan to burn some data, especially those business secrets and private information, to a DVD or USB drive, Power2Go gives you the chance to encrypt the disc or drive with its military-grade 256-bit encrypting method to restrict unauthorized access.
2. Online media backup
Besides the regular files, folder, and ISO burning, Power2Go has one thing in particular – you’re available to burn videos and songs from YouTube and Video to a DVD directly without downloading. And you can extract one in 4K /HDR effect from YouTube to the disc.
3. Movie disc/ Gallery Disc / Album Disc authoring
No matter you plan to burn a disc with digital files, ISO images, or DVD folders, Power2Go got you all covered. Besides, you’re available to decide the quality of the file bit by bit. Also, you can create an engaging DVD menu with free background music and templates.
Flaws of Power2Go
However, to enjoy all these attractive features, you need to sign up for its Premium version that costs around $60 so far. And it doesn’t offer a Mac version, you can only use it on a Windows machine.
V. Ashampoo Burning Studio FREE
Built-in simplicity, Ashampoo Burning Studio makes DVD burning and personal movie disc creation an easy task.
With this program, you can burn data, videos, and music to a DVD without any costs.
Meanwhile, you can make some simple edits on a video if you plan to create a movie disc. By the way, the program offers a few templates to design a menu for your disc.
But be aware that you can only use Ashampoo on your computer under a network connection. No connection, no activation.
Though the program is free to use, you still need to register an account with your e-mail address. And what disturbs me a lot is that after the registry, Ashampoo will keep sending e-mails to ask you to sign up for its paid version.
All in all, this is a lightweight DVD burner that can carry some simple DVD authoring.
