I've got some MP4 video files that I'd like to put onto DVD. What is the best software (preferably free) for accomplishing such a task?

If it's just for personal use, check your dvd player first. Mine can play mp4 files on a disc, but I don't know how common that is (mine has a logo on the front saying so). –  Macha Sep 20 '09 at 17:33

Use DVDFlick, an Open Source product:

DVD Flick aims to be a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Authoring tool. It can take a number of 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. You can add additional custom audio tracks, subtitles as well as a menu for easier navigation.

For a commercial product, ConvertXtoDVD is great.

For a free solution try converting with MediaCoder then use ImgBurn or CDBurnerXP.

I'd recommend DVD Flick.

It's free and fairly easy to use.

An alternative, which I use and would recommend is Freemake Video Converter and is also freeware.

Simply open the application, drag MP4 videos into the window and hit the "to DVD" button. Pretty simple stuff and the results are excellent.

DVD Burning

Unlike other software, our video converter doesn't have a two-hour limit and allows to burn up to 20 hours of video to a Standard DVD or 40 hours to DVD-DL. Apply different DVD menu types: thumbnail, motion, text.
