Here’s the problem: you have some movies on your computer that you have downloaded from the internet. You can watch them on your computer, but you want to be able to watch them on your big screen television. Let’s face it; if you want to watch The Bucket List, Jack Nicholson’s screen presence is just too big for your little 19″ monitor.
So you need to get that movie on to a DVD disc that will play in your regular ol’ DVD player out in the other room. How to do that? Not that easy. There are lots of different programs that will say they create DVDs, but typically they are expensive programs and not all of them are geared toward beginners. And even when you do it right, they don’t always work.
You want something that does the job, is easy to use, and is FREE! Now you have it.
The program is called DVD Flick. You can see it at http://www.dvdflick.net/ (that’s dot.net, not dot.com). It’s a free download, and it really could not make DVD creation any simpler. You put in your blank DVD, run the program, choose your movie file, and click the “Create DVD” button. I hate to say it, but you don’t even need a computer tutor to show you how to do this!
One downside – the process takes a while, and it pretty much ties up your computer in the process. A 2-hour movie file might take 4 or 5 hours to burn to a playable DVD, so you should just start it running before you go to bed, when you are done with your other work. And when you wake up in the morning, there’s Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman waiting for you.
