I have a few hundred AVI and MPG files that need to be burned to a DVD. Each of these files is only 5 to 15 seconds or so, and all of them combined will easily fit on a DVD. I haven't managed to find any free software that is good for this job, though.

Does anyone know of any that would be suitable for this purpose?

Handbrake might be an option. You could probably set chapter markers and whatnot with that one.

The best software for this sort of thing is DVD Flick.

DVD Flick supports many video imports and will help you to make them in to a real DVD that when burnt, will play on any DVD player.

I've tried DVD Flick before, and I regret to say that it didn't work for me. It failed silently without ever burning anything to the DVD in the drive. – TreyK Sep 24 '10 at 1:15
@TreyK - I personally can't speak for the burning part as I have never tried it, however, I think it is still the best product for mastering and I choose the ISO option, then use Imgburn to actually burn the disk. – William Hilsum Sep 24 '10 at 1:52

Well, since you didn't say what OS you're on, I'm suggesting DeVeDe, just in case you're on Linux.

In case you simply want to archive the files, and not make a Video-DVD, use Brasero or GnomeBaker.

I have a linux computer that I have access to, the computer in question is XP. I'll use either, this is a relatively critical DVD that is to be burned. DeVeDe looks great, I'll have to try it out. Thanks! – TreyK Sep 24 '10 at 1:16
devede is nice I think – Prof. Falken Mar 8 '12 at 14:22
