How to Canon EOS 650D MOV files to DVD ?


14 Aug 2012 12:52PM
Hi guys,
I recorded some family videos in my new Canon EOS 650D. Now, I want to burn my homemade video onto a DVD so I can play it on a DVD player at a reception. I canít figure out how to do this, but I assume it is possible. I have read plenty articles which tell me to convert Canon footages first and then burn them into DVD. This is too complicated for me. I want to get an easy solution. Can you help?
Thanks, Melanie

Probably the easiest way to show it at the reception would be to connect your camera to the AV input of the television being used with the DVD player. Otherwise you will have to convert the footage before you can load it to a DVD.

Google for free download 'handbrake video converter' available for mac or pc. Then use iMovie or movie maker to burn to dvd. Hope this helps. Regards.

Well, in the word of video converting there are so many ways to go about this because so many video converting tool can help you encode recorded MOV videos. After conversion, a DVD burning tool is needed for DVD burning. BUT I think you will get lost in this way.
An easy solution is to get a DVD authoring software which supports Canon Long-GOP MOV videos loading. I have ever purchased program from Pavtube which supports my canon 5D ii MOV videos perfectly. Yesterday, I received a newsletter from Pavtube to tell me that its newly released DVD Creator is able to burn Canon MOV videos to DVD directly without any conversion. I havenít tested it. Go ahead to download and test if it is helpful.

Pavtube is obviously rubbish then. If it doesn't convert the 5D II High Def files to Standard Definition they won't play on a standard DVD player. There are plenty of programs that will burn the files, unconverted, to a DVD data disc, great for storage but not much else.

Play your videos from a laptop (or PC) then you won't have to convert them first, you'll also retain the full definition and quality of the files when connecting your laptop to a modern TV, monitor or projector.

I also use the 650D for video. I use the free Windows Live Movie Maker programme to compile and add effects and the free Windows DVD Maker prog to burn a disc which will play on any DVD player.

It's like an advert. 2 brand new members with similar names and one asks how to solve a problem the other suggests a product. They both joined ephotozine just to do that...

Just google and found ilikemall DVD Creator, Just tested on a 2:30 min movie trailer (.mov) and seemed to work just fine.
It can take multiple titles with option of having subtitles and with/without menu.

If you have windows live on your PC it includes movie maker and a DVD maker which are free and will do a good job without being too complicated.
