    Is there a DVD Maker for Windows 8 and 8.1 just like Windows 7? I've already tried many 3rd party softwares, but most of them is too difficult and need the good specification (ex:RAM 2GB). I also have tried DVD Styler, but it can't insert many video files in 1 time, it's suck! When i tried copying the Windows DVD Maker from other computer running Windows 7, it says that it need MPEG-2 Encoder, is someone know where to download the MPEG-2 Encoder? I've search in the web, but no luck :(

    Please help me if you can. I'll really appreciate that :)
    I'm also sorry if there's a thread similar just like this

    Well, i'm never tried that software because i think it'll be same as the other softwares that only have default templates and we can't edit it by our own (ex: position, design, etc)

    Use Movie Maker to make the movie, then ConvertXtoDVD to make the menus and burn it

    I'll also try the ConvertXtoDVD once again. I'll report soon... :D

    ---EDIT---
    ConvertXtoDVD using 98% CPU and >300 MB, only because i'm creating DVD with 51 videos, each 100 MB and the durations about 20 minutes

    Done a few DVD's for my dad.

    My tool of choice is Adobe Premier.

    Maybe a bit complicated at first but very good once you get your head round it.
