This powerful yet easy-to-use app is both a video converter and a DVD burner. It allows you to create a DVD movie from your video files and burn it to a blank disc without the need of any other software tool. It supports many popular formats, like AVI, MPEG, WMV, and ASF. In addition, it includes many other features to help you create DVD movies with a professional touch.

The program's main interface is very intuitive and self-explanatory, without any complicated elements. You can add several source videos for conversion, as the program allows you to pack in a single movie as many videos as the capacity of the blank disc allows. On the settings window, you can configure the output quality choosing any of the 6 levels provided, which allow you to fit from 2 to 7 hours of video on a single DVD. There is also a capacity indicator that will let you know whether you can continue adding source videos or not. Unfortunately, the program only supports standard 4.7 GB single-layer DVD discs.

There are many other parameters that you can configure on the settings window for more accurate results. For example, you can choose the TV system (NTSC or PAL) and the aspect ratio (4:3 – full screen - or 16:9 – widescreen -), and set the program to split the DVD into chapters automatically every certain amount of minutes (between 10 and 30). In a similar way, you can select the audio codec, set its volume level, and choose a video decoder engine. You can even set the CPU usage level (100%, 85% or 70%), and tell the program to shut down your PC once the task has finished. Finally, back on the main window, you may change the default output folder and the DVD label. Now you are ready to start the process.

Nevertheless, the program includes some complementary tools, like a DVD-RW eraser. Besides, you can also use the DVD burning module separately to burn a DVD movie already stored in your hard disk. In conclusion, Allok AVI DivX MPEG to DVD Converter is a versatile tool designed to allow you to convert one or more of your video files into a standard DVD video, and then burn it to a blank disc in an easy and quick way.
