DVD Flick is a simple but at the same time powerful DVD Authoring tool. It can take several video files stored on your computer and turn them into a DVD that will play back on your DVD player, Media Center or Home Cinema Set.

DVD Flick is Open Source, meaning that anyone can download and view or modify the program's source code. It also means that it is absolutely free of charge. Several external programs are used by DVD Flick to do the dirty work like encoding and combining of video material. All of these programs are free, some are Open Source too.

Below is the official change log for version 1.2.1.4:
  • Added: Improved support for MPEG type container files.
  • Added: Option to specify the amount of threads FFMPEG uses. This is set to the number of logical CPUs by default. Multi-core and (less so) HyperThreading CPUs will get a significant speed boost from this when encoding video.
  • Added: Detects iTunes DRM encrypted files and says they cannot be encoded.
  • Added: Options to select what should be done when a title has finished playing, as well as whether or not to loop the DVD's playback.
  • Added: Option to force re-encoding of MPEG2 video even if it looks to be MPEG2 compliant.
  • Added: Option to change encoder process priority during encoding.
  • Added: Option to force a subtitle to be displayed.
  • Added: Better support for interlaced file sources.
  • Changed: It is no longer possible to combine video sources together into one title which are not of equal width, height, framerate and compression.
  • Changed: errorlog.txt is generated with all the other encoding log files' most important info in it and more.
  • Changed: Folder deletion before encoding starts now only deletes files that could be generated by the encoding process and only looks in the DVD subfolder. Also the warning is made much more agressive.
  • Changed: Progress dialog for more application layout consistency.
  • Changed: Removed audio adjustment options for simplification. Option to force encoding to stereo or mono might return if there are requests for it.
  • Changed: Adjusted disc sizes.
  • Changed: Audio encoding bitrate is raised from about 64 Kbps per channel to 96 Kbps.
  • Changed: Removed Panavision aspect ratio and rewrote video scaling\resizing\padding calculations.
  • Fixed: Burning to disc where the destination folder has a space in it's path name would fail.
  • Fixed: Encoding fails when streams other than video or audio are present in the source file.
  • Fixed: When using the overscan advanced option, padding was not always a required multiple of 2.
  • Fixed: When correcting for overscan was enabled, video would not be the proper DVD standard size.
  • Fixed: Bug where audio would get encoded with 0 channels or 0 Kb/s.
  • Fixed: Unable to quit when the project has been modified and the main window is minimized.
  • Fixed: Audio on final DVD was played too fast\illegible when specifying any other audio format than Auto.
  • Fixed: Bugs in the calculation of required space. Was especially apparent if for example the first title was short and others long, or if subtitles were used.
  • Fixed: A folder named 'Dennis' (that would be me :) ) could end up being created in Documents and Settings when burning to disc or creating an ISO file.
  • Fixed: Issues with large (> 2 Gb) intermediary files that aborted the combining stage.
  • Fixed: Possible crash when clicking Project Settings button.
  • Fixed: When there were multiple audio or video streams in a source file, ecnoding would fail.
