How do I make a video DVD of my Elgato Video Capture recordings?

Elgato Video Capture can easily make recordings from many different composite and S-Video sources, like a VCR or camera.

If you want to take those recordings and put them on a DVD, you'll have to make a Video DVD, rather than just a normal Data DVD.  Otherwise, the DVD may not play back on many standard DVD players.

 
Windows DVD Creation


You'll need separate software to make your Elgato Video Capture recordings into a Video DVD.

Such software is available from various vendors, like Roxio.

There are lots of other applications that can also make Video DVDs.  You can find some from the Windows Store.

Give your .mp4 recording to your Video DVD creation software.

Then, you choose how the DVD will look (menus, etc), and the Video DVD creation software will take a blank DVD you've inserted into your computer, and turn that into a Video DVD.

Windows DVD Maker can also make a Video DVD.  It was a part of older versions of Windows, but it is not included with or available for Windows 10.

 
Mac DVD Creation


You'll need separate software to make your Elgato Video Capture recordings into a Video DVD.

One application that does that is called iDVD, and you can get that from Apple.

Another application that does that is called Toast Titanium.
