FAVC is a free collection of tools used to convert your media files, such as AVI, MP4, WMV and more to a DVD disk. FAVC is currently for Windows only. You can convert one video or multiple videos to a disk, and it includes automatic menu creation.

FAVC

FAVC is a frontend for a handful of other free software. It includes:

  • AC3Fix
  • Aften
  • Avisynth Plugins
  • Avs2avi
  • Batchmux
  • DGPulldown
  • HC
  • (Encoder)

  • ImgBurn
  • MediaInfo
  • Mencoder
  • mkisofs
  • MKVtoolnix
  • MuxMan
  • QuEnc
  • SubtitleCreator
  • twoLAME
  • Wavi

What I like about this software is that it very simple to use on first glance, but then there are a lot of configuration options available to use.

FAVC Configuration Options

Once you hit “Generate DVD”, it first analyzes the video files you have added. It then automatically generates a batch file that it uses to generate the disk. After that, it runs the encoding.

FAVC Encoding

The end result is a DVD – either the VIDEO_TS folders and if you choose, the .iso file that you can burn directly to the disk through the software, or with your own software if you should choose.

FAVC is great, free software that will help you to play those media files on your DVD player if you don’t have a device that supports MP4 (Apple TV), or AVI/DivX (XBox360, PS3, or DivX supported DVD Player).

Do you use anything similar to make DVD’s that you can recommend?

    DVDFlick does not handle menus but it does do the job. Another good program is Devede - available for both Linux and Windows - which allows you to create a menu and which outputs an ISO DVD to be burned using a program like ImgBurn.

    Thanks for introducing the useful software. The only downside is that it can be VERY SLOW when creating a DVD my laptop is fairly new, so I can confirm this; but I just let it do it’s job overnight, only to wake up up to a finished DVD. But hey, it’s free!

    this seems similar to convertxtodvd which is an excellent program, but there is an alternative that has a simple interface and works just as well, its dvdflick, http://www.dvdflick.net, its an excellent program aswell.

    FAVC is great; however, for those of you who have used ConvertXtoDVD and want something quite similar, I would definitely recommend DVD Flick:

    The only downside is that it can be VERY SLOW when creating a DVD (my laptop is fairly new, so I can confirm this; but I just let it do it's job overnight, only to wake up up to a finished DVD). But hey, it's free!

    I've been using ConvertXtoDVD and I like it.
    Does this support subtitles btw?
    And does anyone know how it compares to ConvertXtoDVD?

    On Linux I used to use dvdauthor and MPlayer. The article I followed was here http://www.linux.com/articles/53702

    Does anyone have any easier ways of doing this now?

    Just remember, you can't just burn the VIDEO_TS folder as a data DVD and expect it to work in a set-top player. Most computers will handle it, but discs need to be formatted in a specific way to play on set top players. Be sure to use a burning application that is DVD aware.

    Thanks for introducing the useful software. However, shouldn't I be able to find a link for the software instead of googling it?
