I've been through a bunch of software -- I've downloaded and made a few coasters... Some just don't do what I want... some just crash my Quad core?!... I've uninstalled many (i'm gratefull I don't seem to be infected yet) - many of these also have those hidden agendas, meaning when you install, you need to say no to one or more 3rd party add ons, toolbars or other products.

I want to create DVD Video from a pile of MP4 files with a menu. I'd tell you what I've tried, but I'm not at that machine right now and I've been through a slew of them. At this point I might be willing to pay actual money... but normally its not like buying a Android app, they usually want like $100.

Paid software

VideoRedo Plus-a free trial version is available for you to test. http://www.videoredo.com/en/ProductPlus.htm

 

Free software

DVD Flick-it's free, produces less elegant menus, but can handle most file formats. http://www.dvdflick.net/features.php

tried DVDFlick... I remember that one. After downloading it immediately came up with an error with some ocx file. I think it's not Windows7-64bit friendly. - as quickly as installed... uninstalled...

I would second the choice of Video ReDo. I've been using it for quite a while. Yes, it costs $$ but is worth it to have software that works and works without having to install umpteen 3rd party helper apps that have all their own bugs and limitations -- many were never updated to work with anything past Win-XP 32-bit.

VRD will make your DVD's and let you make custom menus. You can edit your clips and split or join them.

Well I've had success with DVDStyler - http://www.dvdstyler.org/en/ However when I tried to add too many video files, and make it a large project. I checked the memory, it was jammed to the roof. And then the program crashed. So I intended to make one disk... But I was able to use the software to make 2 disks from my video files.
