I have a WMV and I would like to make a video DVD. What is the cheapest way to get from WMV to DVD? I already have a burning program (Toast).

I use VisualHub for simple drag-n-drop video file conversion.

Should be able to create DVDs from WMV for you - I did WMV to iTunes yesterday so I know it handles them as an input format and DVD is an output option (you can even choose to burn or not)

Thanks for that. I'll check it out. Shareware... hmmm.... – Dan Rosenstark Sep 11 '09 at 14:32
Its discontinued so I wouldn't worry about donations. Fully functional and without nags as I recall.... – Rob Cowell Sep 11 '09 at 14:35
Cool, thanks for that. I'll make you best answer since you could use the points :) – Dan Rosenstark Sep 15 '09 at 11:46
  1. Install Flip4Mac's WMV Player (free)
  2. In Toast, choose the option for creating a DVD-Video disc
  3. Drag the WMV to toast
  4. Burn
  5. Toast will take care of conversion and the rest

This is probably best answer, but I try to distribute the points around :) Thanks again. – Dan Rosenstark Sep 15 '09 at 11:46
@Yar: I... killl... youuu!!~~ :) Seriously, don't worry about awarding points to best answer or what, most of us I believe are here to help people out - points are a bonus, good to have, but it won't kill us to not have it too. more importantly, keeps our mind sharp and allow us to stay in touch with relevant problems happening in tech-land. – caliban Sep 15 '09 at 12:26
+1 for being honest, and accepting an answer at least. ;P – caliban Sep 15 '09 at 12:30

You might also want to take a look at VideoMonkey - it's another video transcoding app for the Mac similar to VisualHub which was already mentioned. However, unlike VisualHub, VideoMonkey is still under active development. (It's also free) With it you can convert your WMV into a format that the Mac tools such as iTunes, iDVD, etc. can understand (like H.264 or MPEG4).
