Our 2009 Member Choice DVD Creation Poll results are below. This poll was conducted by Kiwi See Profile

Wikipedia defines DVD authoring as:

The process of creating a DVD video that can be played on a DVD player. DVD authoring software must conform to the specifications set by the DVD Forum group in 1995. The specifications are complicated due to the number of companies that were involved in creating them.

The actual layout of the files on the medium and the operations that have to be undertaken to produce a 'playable' DVD (starting with already MPEG2-coded footage) are far too intricate - and beyond the scope of this article - to be explained here, and, indeed, worlds apart from the simple process of CD-audio authoring.

Strictly speaking, DVD authoring is a separate process from MPEG encoding, but most modern DVD authoring software has a built-in encoder (though separate encoders are still used when better quality or finer control over compression settings is required).

Most authoring applications are for video DVDs only; they do not support the creation of DVD-Audio discs.

•Our #1 choice was [Other] - Most folks utilizing this choice for "None", Nero, Adobe Encore & TMPGEnc DVD Author 1.6

•The 2nd runner up was ConvertXtoDVD / Divx to DVD / DivxToDVD

•Our 3rd place winner was Roxio's Easy Media Creator 9
