There’s nothing worse than spending your precious time on a handmade DVD (maybe a family video compilation, or downloaded videos from the internet, or any variation of video media) only to be forced to use unimaginative, limited DVD menu options. If you want to make a custom DVD, you probably also want to make a custom menu. Luckily, with the right tools, it’s easy!

Today the market boasts dozens of DVD making software for download on Windows. But how do you choose the right one? The available features are a good way to narrow down your choices. Although many third-party applications will allow you to create DVDs from one or more video file formats, not all of them allow you high-level customization. Can you choose your chapter locations within the DVD? Can you resize or crop the videos before stitching them together? Can you determine burn speed and quality? And, perhaps most importantly as your family and friends who watch the video will base their first impression off of it, can you create your own DVD menu to accompany the content? If the answer is no to any of these questions, you may want to consider an option that DOES include these and many more customization features.
