As other video conversion programs require top notch hardware such as a Intel i3 Processor with more than 4 gigabytes of memory available, you don’t have to worry with VSO ConvertXToDVD.

I personally like its basic layout, easily navigation and, its basic to advance options.
Some of the other applications on the market overly complicate their functions, and provide to many options to complete one task or adjustment right out the gate. As you add your media to the work space, the additional options to configure becomes available. I feel this is a great step to keep your focus on one media / option at a time.
Another great item I like about ConvertXtoDVD 4 is its pop hints. The Pop up hints are basic explanation of the option functions. Example when adjusting the audio, ConvertXtoDVD 4 explains the different volume levels and how to preview them before applying. Same thing goes when adding a subtitle file, you have the ablity to change its fonts, location, and color once the subtitle files are imported.
I also like the ability to adjust my conversion priority when converting. Example if I need faster conversion I can set ConvertXToDVD 4 to be at it’s highest conversion my system will allow. Same thing goes if I’m playing a game online and just want to convert some video without straining my system.
I recommend it VSO ConvertXToDVD 4 as simple video to dvd converting program that every super hero needs in their utility belt
It gives the user the ability Convert videos to DVD then watch on any DVD player
Allows the conversion project to Burn later or automatically burn after video conversion
And produces exceptional quality at fast conversion rate
