To burn videos on a Mac or Windows PC, besides the required hardware to process the burning, you will need a DVD Creator, also called as DVD Burner to burn a DVD.
Today, more and more users are talking about iSkysoft DVD Creator, so we are here to write a review about this program, revealing everything you need to know about iSkysoft DVD Creator, be it the iSkysoft DVD Creator for Mac or iSkysoft DVD Creator for Windows.
iSkysoft, the developer of iSkysoft DVD Creator, is a group to offer software solutions since 2004. It covers multimedia tools, office productivity programs, utilities, and even design tools, with high compatibility both on Mac and Windows. Being a dedicated software designer, it develops and updates solutions in an extremely active way to help users with their increasing needs.
iSkysoft DVD Creator, as iSkysoft proclaims, is the easiest DVD burning software to burn any video to DVD. Also, here is a list to show you its main features:
Yes, of course, with a 15-year dedication and expertise in this field, iSkysoft has served numerous users and won universal trust. It is safe to download and purchase any program from iSkysoft. But of course, just use its official website for further actions.
iSkysoft DVD Creator works great to burn relatively small size videos to DVD, also it is more suitable to burn DVD on a basic or simple theme, since the editing tools and menu templates are quite ordinary. Also, it doesn’t support the newest macOS Monterey.
iSkysoft DVD Creator offers a free trial for users before they make any commercial decisions, but there are limitations to this free trial:
But for users who only need to burn videos to DVD, this free trial is a good tool to utilize.
According to the tech specification on the iSkysoft website, the supported input includes: MP4, M4V(without DRM), FLV, AVI, VOB, M2TS, MTS, 3GP, 3G2, MOV, F4V, MPG, MPEG, TS, TRP, TP, DAT, WMV, MKV, ASF.
Yet, there is no information about the supported audio formats when adding music to a video, also no mentions about the supported image formats. But as per my tests, it supports all mainstream audio and image formats.
No limited to burn videos to DVD Disc, iSkysoft DVD Creator also helps to export other DVD-friendly formats as follows:
The download is both available for Mac users and Windows users. It will take about 65MB to download the installer.
As for the installation, it is quite easy. After you have agreed on the “Agreement”, the installation process starts and will take another 175 MB.
Before burning a video to DVD, iSkysoft enables users to edit the video and add a menu template, to customize the DVD output. And here we are going to talk about how iSkysoft helps to personalize DVD with these 2 toolbars.
Both work as a DVD Creator, I expect there will be something in common between these 2 programs, but surprisingly, they basically share everything in common, which makes me to jump such a conclusion: iSkysoft DVD Creator and Wondershare DVD Creator are created by the same developer.
Just days ago, I finished the Wondershare DVD Creator review, I downloaded and tried this program too. Range from installer size, interface, features, to every little word on the interface, everything is the same, except that iSkysoft DVD Creator comes in green UI, while Wondershare DVD Creator comes in red UI.
For more details to find out the similarities between these 2 programs, please refer to my Review on Wondershare DVD Creator.
But still, there is a difference, Wondershare DVD Creator has upgraded to support macOS Monterey, but iSkysoft doesn’t support it. So, if you happen to know these 2 DVD burners, you are more recommended to use Wondershare's.
iSkysoft DVD Creator may fail to do the DVD burning in your case, even you have restarted or reinstalled the program, trying to fix such a failure. Then what to do? No worries, there are other choices, for example, Cisdem DVD Burner.
Cisdem DVD Burner is a DVD burning software to create DVD Disc or DVD files from virtually all kinds of videos, including but not limited to mp4, mov, flv, mkv, m4v, vob, etc, with original video quality retained, no matter you are burning common videos, HD or 4K even 5K.
There is also a video editor built-in Cisdem DVD Burner, allowing users to personalize their videos before the burning. Even, with free menu templates offered, users can burn their videos featured with different themes, such as holiday, wedding, sports, etc.
Step 1. Download and install Cisdem DVD Burner on your mac.
Step 2. Click “+ Add videos” to import videos to the program for burning.
Step 3. (Optional) Edit the video.
Click under the thumbnail of the imported video, a window will appear and users can utilize those toolbars to crop, add effects/watermark/subtitle/chapters, and rotate the video.
Step 4. (Optional) Choose a menu template.
Choose an appropriate menu template according to the video style and modify the menu texts if necessary.
Step 5. Choose the output format for your DVD and click the “Burn” button to start the burning process.
This tool is only for mac users. For Windows users, Winx DVD Author, the free DVD burning software is recommended.
To sum up, iSkysoft DVD Creator is worth a try for users who have basic needs to burn and edit the videos. But for users who work on macOS Monterey, or require a stable and high-quality burning, Cisdem and Wondershare are better choices.
